RemindMeCare enables them to build a profile of the person and continually helps staff to learn and understand the person’s life history. . . it’s fantastic to be able to fully engage with families in this way. . . it has made such a difference to the people living here in such a short space of time. . . it is particularly good in helping us engage with people living with dementia.

Times are tough for care businesses. You’ll be thinking that you want to …
‘ …. improve the way you deliver person centred care’
‘ …. save money through starting to use digital solutions’
‘ …. find as many care solutions in one comprehensive system as possible’
‘ …. that saves and makes more than it costs’
You’re in the right place. For ReMe is the most comprehensive, cost effective, Activity Based software currently available.
ReMe is not Care Planning Software – for it does not record data and use it for improving care. ReMe is Activity Based software, so it works in the opposite way; by delivering activities it improves person centred care and then records the data output from these activities and uses it to then yet further improve care. For example, you will know what topic was engaging a resident yesterday and so today will be able to continue that discussion to engage and reduce agitation. (Therefore although standalone software, ReMe integrates nicely alongside care planning software, if you have it).
ReMe is not a Family Photo Album app – for unlike other dementia apps (and you’ll see a lot out there), ReMe does not just offer family photo upload, simple games and basic family engagement. ReMe also possesses a bespoke ‘explore and discover’reminiscence process, that enables discovering topics and content that can have significant therapeutic impact and assist developing dementia care strategies, and provides a means to create highly engaging bespoke group reminiscence sessions. And, ReMe wraps a set of care business tools around this unique method of improving person centred care. So unlike other apps ReMe offers real care and clinical solutions to care businesses – and at a lower cost.
In summary, ReMe is …. Activity Based software, a completely unique system that can improve care and save money at the same time. Driven by its person profiling and memory tools, the system provides activities that not only improve person centred care significantly, but also generate data from the outcomes. A set of business tools then uses this data to further enhance care and provide reports, for the care facility, for the family and for the CQC. The result is significantly improved care, reassurance to the family of the quality of care being provided and cost savings to the care business. A fun and easy way to transition to using tablets..
I believe that improving person-centred care is at the heart of reaching outstanding care – and RemindMeCare’s activity based software has the potential to do just that for today’s care businesses.

RemindMeCare has a role to play across the full care process;
It first gains information at the point of client acquisition and then assists in developing the care plan. And from this knowledge is able to build a personal Profile of the client and so delivers reminiscence sessions that are illustrated with unlimited bespoke internet derived content.
Automated reports are emailed to the family and they’re invited into the ReMe Care Circle and can themselves remotely upload personal photos, create music playlists and provide valuable insight into their family members life, interests and preferences.
RemindMeCare learns of the clients Life Story and their likes and dislikes on an ongoing basis, facilitating enhanced carer: client engagement, person centred care and the ability to develop acute care planning based on enhanced knowledge of the person.
In brief, a carer will know what topics were engaging the person the day before and therefore will be able to continue to explore these topics, thereby improving the activity and personalising the care process. That’s unique.
Offering also highly cost effective daily therapy, entertainment, reporting and family reassurance, the system helps carers gain a sense of self worth through discovery and job satisfaction.

Achieving an ROI for investing in tech to improve the care process
RemindMeCare improves care delivery. But the results of enhanced person centred care, improved carer engagement, remote family connectivity digitised data, quantifiable admin and automated family and CQC reporting, are also organisational benefits. These include time savings, reduced costs, improved staff morale and easier client acquisition.
… any one of which justifies the cost of ReMe for a year.
The system requires only broadband and a tablet, little training and no technical expertise to install or operate. So no heavy start up costs. And since ReMe is fun to use, its a great way to introduce tablets and software into your care facility.
… and at less than 10p/day/person, ReMe is very cost effective.
ReMe won’t solve all your problems. But it will improve your care delivery and save you money. That’s two for the price of one.
… ReMe can save you in excess of £5-8k per year per care facility.

We’re really pleased to have found a comprehensive, affordable and fun person centred care system that really delivers a quick return for investing in technology and tablets.
