Scally - emotional support bot for caregivers

Shared by Heorhii Akimov on 2022-06-21 12:30

About the solution

Scally is the first psychological help for caregivers and relatives of cancer patients.

It`s a set of simple but effective methods endorsed by onco-psychologists, which they have used in their practice everyday:
- mood tracker
- appreciation diary
- reports on the daily routine
- motivating quotes
- meditation audio

The bot monitors the change in the user's mood and suggests certain practices, taking into account the user's needs. After the caregiver overcomes the initial difficulties of the patient's diagnosis and accepts it as a part of their life, Scally will offer the next level of interaction. This is a set of exercises, weekly challenges, communication with other users in a safe space, mentoring, tests.

Also, the bot can control the timely intake of medicines by the patient using a notification and reporting system. To activate this function, you only need to rewrite the doctor's prescriptions.

About the author

My name is Gosha Akimov. We started building Scally in 2021, and it just so happens that during that year I also cared for two grandmothers with cancer. In this situation, I was left alone with someone else's illness. Unfortunately, the medical staff, friends and relatives did not have the necessary qualifications to help me cope with this stage of life. I received psychological help later, in the psychologist's office. Therefore, we create Scally in order to receive help right in the process of caring for a patient, without postponing it for later.
