One of the recent new tech companies that has entered the care arena, RemindMeCare, provides software for tablets that enables enhanced person-centred care and activity delivery and carer and family connectivity, from care in the community to domiciliary, live-in, housing, residential and ward care. Used in care homes such as Signature, in dom care by Bluebird Care and in hospitals such as Kingston Hospital.
RemindMeCare celebrates a life, connects with the care circle, and tackles agitation, depression and isolation. Portable from home to dom, day, residential and ward care, RemindMeCare provides through the use of bespoke internet content, the means to define life story, preferences and interests and to deliver digital activities. The result is improved person centred care. But RemindMeCare goes further, achieving an ROI by assisting in client acquisition, care assessment and acute care planning, daily management, reminiscence therapy and activity creation/scheduling/planning, whilst also providing family, admin and CQC reporting.
As well as person centred care and activity provision, RemindMeCare offers support for self-care management. And at its heart, is the proposition that knowledge of the person should be portable, being available to each care provider as the person makes their care journey from care at home, through dom care, residential and ward care to the end of life. But for interaction to occur daily so that it can be optimally supportive of self-care management, whether in the home or a care home bedroom, the system must achieve a significant personalised relationship with the resident. ‘Voice engagement with a system that knows you, that gets your likes and dislikes and which responds to your memories, should enable more person centred care provision. And if the system can also provide management functionality that supports the needs of the care facility, then that could represent a significant next step forward in the evolution of tech in care homes’, says Etienne.
RemindMeCare’s founders, Simon Hooper and Etienne Abrahams, believe that voice tech has the potential to be a game changer - one that will achieve the engagement with the person cared for, whether elderly, with dementia or with cognitive impairment, that has so often been missing with previous innovation. 'For unless consumer tech is fun, rewarding and personalised, it won’t be long before it starts to gather dust', says Simon Hooper. ‘For it’s not everyone that wants to tap on a screen, and eyesight can be an issue. But nearly everyone from the day we’re born, loves to be heard'.
As the host and sponsor at the GIANT Health event ‘Innovations in Voice’ conference on 30th November, RemindMeCare is bringing together experts; others like them that are working on voice solutions such as local authorities, businesses, developers and business leaders, from Barclays, Deloitte and PHE, to academia and government GDPR think tank experts, as well as start-ups, Chinese robotics manufacturers and AI visionaries. 'It will be a day of debate and discussion, of problems voiced and visions explored’. One not to be missed if you also believe that voice may represent the dawn of a new era in self-care management enablement.
