Allison Nikula is the Founder of nationally awarded and internationally recognised application, CareApp.
An Occupational Therapist with rare experience in both clinical healthcare and technology, Allison bridges the gap with flair and pizazz.
Like 1.3 million other older Australians, Allison’s grandparents needed a little extra support to stay at home. Allison’s family wanted to be active contributors to their care, but communication was fragmented and visibility about their care and wellbeing was poor. At the same time, Allison was leading a team of over 440 community care workers and saw that her personal experience was not unique.
Allison knew the value a strengthened network of support provides in supporting health and wellbeing. With the seed for CareApp sown, Allison embarked on creating CareApp. As a market led innovation, Allison initially consulted with prospective users with nothing more than sketches on a piece of paper and some wireframe mock-ups. A proof of concept was created and tested before a minimum viable product was developed and launched in March 2018.
Meals on Wheels NSW are proud partners of CareApp’s Early Adopter Program, sharing the vision to equip volunteers with the ability to conduct safety and wellbeing checks, improving service efficiencies, measuring social capital and demonstrating that Meals on Wheels are really “more than just a meal”.
