Putting the Person at the Centre of Care

Dementia and care of the elderly is demanding; for the person being cared for and for their carers. But the better a carer knows the person, the better it is for everyone. RemindMeCare places the person at the centre and provides unique tools and activities that assist them be better known for who they truly are.

Much work has been done regarding person centred care delivery, the power of reminiscence therapy and different methodologies for dementia care. Opinions vary but all agree on one thing, that Life Story knowledge brings benefits to all. Until now it’s not been possible to easily use internet content to explore a person’s Life Story and likes and dislikes other than on a generic basis. ReMe changes that …

Understanding the Person

ReMe matches the profile of the person with automatically sourced internet content. Built with remote family participation, ReMe’s digital My Story is at the heart of ReMe and learns and grows through activities undertaken with the individual. Person centered care, community engagement, care circle interaction, all improve when the profile of the individual is better defined. ReMe puts the person at the centre of the care process. As a result, it’s applicable to many care sectors and therefore becomes ideal for persons with multiple conditions. ReMe has a multi-cultural capability and is cross generational in appeal.   Read More

Enabling the Care Circle

It’s often difficult for family to be engaged with the care process. Distance, age, fading memories and receding commonality all make communication and support harder day by day. Grand children find relating difficult and phone calls and visits become increasingly awkward. But we’ve all experienced how media, such as music and photos, can change all this – just one photo, song or video can unlock communication that improves the dynamic of a relationship, whether with family or carers. By enabling remote connectivity between the care circle, whether for a person cared for at home or in a residential setting, isolation can be reduced and well-being improved.  Read More

 

As well as celebrating a persons life, the portability of RemindMeCare is really, really useful for everyone.

Community Involvement

RemindMeCare can assist in reducing isolation, whether the person is cared for in the community or in a care home, and can help improve engagement with the local community. Through better knowing the interests, likes and dislikes of the person, ReMe can match them with local activities, services and support.

Portable Care

It doesn’t matter where you go, your Facebook account goes with you. It’s the same with ReMe. As family and the person cared for build a repository of content that defines their Profile, this becomes available for use in the care process wherever they may be; whether at home, in a day care centre, a care home or during a hospital visit. A carers access to a repository of personal content and data and the means to undertake familiar activities, enhances the care in each care facility and assists in the often difficult transfer between them. ReMe soon becomes an invaluable ever growing resource and source of support.

The Principle of Fun

At the heart of ReMe is the principle that ‘if its not fun, in won’t get used’. In the world of the internet, this is called ‘stickiness’. It’s what glues us to our Ipads and it’s how ReMe’s unique content driven software brings carers closer to those they care for.

Deploying the Experts

It’s our view that the work of experts in dementia and care, such as Kitwood, Brooker, etc., can be enhanced using technology. RemindMeCare works hard to address their aims through the use of digital interventions. We believe we’re at the beginning of an age of convergence for the care industry, one where computing, content and data will greatly improve the care process for everyone.

Cross cultural and Generational Engagement

ReMe is unique in its ability to provide content for anyone. Accessing 10+billion media on the internet, ReMe can uniquely illustrate the a life story of everyone and can entertain, engage and stimulate anyone; from eight to eighty, from dementia to cerebral palsy, from ex postman to pilot or nurse.

 

RemindMeCare connects me with my family more easily, when I’m with them or when they are away.
