Sharp has introduced RemindMecare (aka ReMe) software to its interactive Touch Screen Table: Meet UP to help improve person centred care for the elderly.
The global electronics provider and distributor is partnering with leading technology and app development company, Health-Connected Ltd (HCL), on the initiative.
Matt Saunders, Product Marketing Manager at Sharp UK, said: “We’re very excited by the real benefits that ReMe can bring to the elderly and their care providers. The Interactive Touch Screen Table: Meet UP has already earned enthusiastic reviews from residents and carers for the variety of innovative group activities that it facilitates.
“ReMe provides another dimension to the table’s capabilities and makes a big difference to elderly care home residents, their families, carers and even, with its reporting capabilities, to the care home manager.”
The RemindMecare software from HCL is designed to improve engagement between care home residents and care providers, evidence activity provision and help the delivery of personalised care for the elderly.
The technology enables care providers to capture each residents’ usage of apps on the table, their degree of interest and the outcomes of the activity. The system also stores a resident’s personal information and creates a detailed and current profile of each person and their life story, capturing memories through favourite conversational topics and games, whilst also providing remote family interactivity.
Simon Hooper, CEO at Health-Connected, said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Sharp to bring ReMe to more care providers. The Interactive Touch Screen Table: Meet UP is the perfect way to engage and evidence the personalised activities that ReMe is all about.”
