A typical ReMe user care journey

Arthur’s Story

The following is a composite of actual stories and events from a number of ReMe users, that shows how ReMe’s used across the care journey. 

Arthur lives at home alone and has early stage dementia. He downloads the ReMe app and uses it daily to support his care needs.

His family used ReMe to build Arthur’s profile and life story, capture and preserve his memories, define his preferences and store this ever-expanding knowledge within ReMeVault, to ensure security and portability.

They chose assistive tech that integrates with ReMe to ensure convenience of remote management. They found a local lawyer, domiciliary carers and even organised a dementia friendly cruise for him using ReMe’s support website.

Arthur loves receiving the ‘live’ photos that his care circle send him, and they also create music playlists and movie recommendations for him, that he watches on the ReMe connected TV. Arthur enjoys ReMe’s quizzes and cognitive activities and uses the voice activation option often since he prefers talking to pressing buttons on the tablet. He feels connected.

He self-manages his daily care, but the family also use ReMe’s voice activated calendars to remotely auto-prompt him regarding medication and hydration. ReMe helps Arthur start his day properly and reminds him of the important things in his life such as his family, memories and music, and generally reassures him and keeps him occupied.

His domiciliary carers can easily engage with him on topics that currently interest him as presented in ReMe. And when he becomes agitated they quickly access personal and familiar content that calms him.

When a carer moves in to look after Arthur, the family remotely check on his wellbeing.  ReMe presents local activities and they can monitor his take up.

Eventually Arthur moves into an assisted living housing unit. The transfer is easy as ReMe goes with him ensuring the continuity of the activities familiar to him and informing the facility of his life story and needs, so they can deliver bespoke person-centred care. And his family can continue to remotely engage with Arthur.

They log in to learn about Arthur’s condition, check which activities he’s enjoying and read the carer’s comments, or listen to his recorded voice during conversations, reminiscence and therapy. Each new carer can quickly know how to engage with Arthur.

When Arthur has a fall and is taken to A&E he becomes agitated. But luckily the hospital uses ReMe and so they know how to calm him and don’t resort to medication. In the ward they use ReMe to deliver familiar activities and this speeds up his recovery and he’s soon back at his home.

When Arthur moves to a nursing home, ReMe is full of knowledge that helps them better care for him, and also provides them with tools to improve their care and business performance.

ReMe offers many comforting benefits; the family can make a film or print a book of Arthur’s life and if chosen, ReMe can hold Arthur’s life story content in perpetuity for the family to access whenever they wish.
