CHP talks to Hallmark Head of Dementia April Dobson and app inventor Howard Bashford about RelsApp, which enables relatives and residents to send each other messages, pictures and videos on a safe and secure platform.
April and Howard explain how the closed social networking app was personalised for Hallmark and how it has improved the wellbeing and mental health of residents during lockdown.
As well as benefiting residents, the technology has provided peace of mind for relatives not able to see their loved ones by keeping them in touch with what they have been doing.
