The Care Act encourages establishing the Life Story of a person, with the aim of facilitating person centred care and enabling providers to build activity and care around the particular wishes, interests and needs of each person. This usually involves pen and paper. ReMe has digitised the process, enabling family to participate and match their profile with automatically generated internet content. The result is a life vibrantly illustrated with bespoke content that grows day by day.
ReMe builds a structured personal Profile by capturing the culture, experience and beliefs that make up an individual. Using the themes that are common to all our lives, school, children, jobs, holidays, a profile is built up by prompting users to describe specific aspects of their experience.
The system automatically sources content from the internet to match these topics that define the person and their Life Story. The result is a uniquely engaging repository of images, video and music that defines the person and that is invaluable in the care process.
Updated remotely or together, the Profile creation and upkeep is shared among those that have been invited to participate; the person themselves, by carers and remotely by family and friends.
With a profile built using the My Story module, carers can better know the person and their ability to deliver person centred care is really enhanced. Furthermore, common themes emerge between users that can be used to promote group engagement.
Importantly, whilst Topics can be made private being shared only with specifically chosen individuals, the collected knowledge in the Profile supports continuity of care across agencies.
