Digital Reminisence

Low cost and easily adopted, ReMe’s a win: win for everyone.

What is ReMe?

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 that achieve time savings, reduced costs, improved staff morale and easier client acquisition- any one of which justifies the cost of ReMe for a year.

The result is that those cared for are better known, families are better informed, carers better trained, supported and satisfied. Activities are more varied and easily created. Well-being and care are improved and evidenced

ReMe Case Studies

RemindMeCare delivers many wonderful rewarding experiences and memories, for the person and the carer alike. Here’s a couple of examples. They are based on actual events but changed to fit the functionality capabilities of ReMe…

Dave

Dave’s Story

Dave has mid stage dementia. Sometimes agitated, he has favourite words that he repeats often. One of these is ‘tank’. Being a plumber, carers often used ReMe to show him images of plumbing and of course included water tanks, to seek to gain significant response. He showed little interest until ReMe ‘did what it does’, which was to show other options for the word ‘tank’, as part of it’s exploration process. It showed a military tank, at which point Dave excitedly quoted a serial number. The carer duly noted this on the image and recorded his voice over one of the tank images. This caused ReMe, at the end of the session, to automatically send an email to all the family members in Dave’s care circle alerting them to the fact that he’d shown an interest in tanks.

 

His brother in Auckland realised that Dave had been briefly in a tank regiment after the war and so he logged into ReMe, viewed the reminiscence session and voice notes and uploaded photos of Dave sitting on a tank gun barrel in Germany eating an ice cream.

 

When the next reminiscence session was run these images were present and the carer explored this content with Dave. He was responsive and a rewarding seam for ongoing discovery, for both Dave and his carers was discovered and this theme is now used as a means to calm Dave when he is agitated. Some sessions later he started to talk about how he met his wife … a cognitively stimulating voyage of discovery was begun.

Adrian’s Story

When Adrian was taken into the garden to participate in gardening with a group in the care home, the carers were surprised by his interest. They took photos on the tablet and these were automatically recorded in a ReMe report usable by the care home for admin and reporting. The images were also automatically posted in Adrian’s My Story area as an activity album and as a newly discovered theme of interest to Adrian.

 

The family care circle was automatically notified of this new interest and responded by uploading photos of the various gardens that had been in Adrian’s life – and gardening has now become a regular theme for carer engagement. New carers can instantly know what was engaging Adrian the day before. For example, a family tree house was particularly memorable for him and for his visiting grandchildren. He then remembered a game of conkers with his brother and images were found to cement and explore this memory.

 

These activities, subsequent bespoke person centred reminiscence sessions and family engagements were all automatically recorded and available in summary report form for inspection by the CQC, who were impressed by the bespoke and person centred nature of carer engagement with residents.

Jane’s Story

Jane had a recurring hip problem. She was admitted to the dementia friendly ward. As they use ReMe they received an automated email from the care home so that upon admission they accessed Jane’s ReMe My Passport with its basic health conditions, risk data, up to date This Is Me and knowledge of what was engaging her yesterday.

 

During the stay the nurses easily engaged using ReMe’s knowledge of Jane and delivered the same bespoke therapy and entertainment that was familiar to her. ReMe assisted in calming strategies so reducing resort to medication, and improved wellbeing. They viewed Jane’s ReMe wellbeing reports and with just five simple questions kept them up to date.

 

When the family visited they used ReMe to achieve easier communication on topics known to engage and it was discovered that Jane liked to talk about seals. The grandson created a ReMe session on the topic. Upon return to the care home, the carers found this session and continued to use it to maintain engagement and built a group reminiscence session for other residents, which has proved popular and has helped Jane develop rapport with other residents.
