We discovered, from the experience of care with our families, that all the available ‘serious software’ was directed at collecting data and using it to monitor the care process and that it did not truly address improving the day to day experience of either the person being cared or the carers. Basically, it’s data entry focused not engagement based.
So we set about building a new form of software that would give the ‘end user’ access to the power of the internet through undertaking stimulating and enjoyable activities.
We worked with care experts and academia to align our system with the evidence base of the accredited care principles and processes, such as reminiscence, VIPS, CST, self management and person centred care (Kitwood). We’re fortunate to have the support of industry and academic leaders in their field.
The result is RemindMeCare, a unique system (which we’ve christened ‘Activity Software’ to differentiate it from Care Planning and Care Recording Software) that serves the ‘activity’ needs of all those parties involved in the person centred care process and uses the outcome data to further improve care.
