  • Daily Sparkle smartphone app teams up with videolink

    Daily Sparkle smartphone app teams up with videolink

    03.06.20 The Daily Sparkle reminiscence service has joined forces with Person Centred Software to develop a smartphone app particularly suited to meet the needs of care home residents isolated in their rooms. The aim of the app is to encourage relatives to engage with residents in fun activities while talking with them over Person Centred Software’s Relatives Gateway video link. “These interactions can not only foster the warm feelings of being connected but can also provide vital mental and emotional stimulation for the resident,” the two organisations said. “Since the early days of covid-19, the Daily Sparkle app has been specifically developed to meet the unique needs of care home residents who are isolated in their rooms.” To sign up for the free Relatives Gateway visit www.personcentredsoftware.com/covid19response and for the Daily Sparkle app contact melony@dailysparkle.co.uk

    Overall care home deaths rise, but downturn in Covid-19 figures

    02.06.20 Figures released last week by the Office for National Statistics show there were 4,461 deaths in care homes in England and Wales in the week ending May 15. It was an increase on the previous week and exceeds the five-year average number of deaths at this time of year by 2,468. However, deaths attributed to covid-19 as opposed to other conditions fell slightly compared with the previous week. “People with dementia have been the worst hit by coronavirus, accounting for a quarter of deaths so far,” said Alzheimer’s Society head of policy Gavin Terry. “It’s incredibly concerning to see today’s figure that care home deaths are still running at twice the expected number. We know there has been a sharp rise in dementia deaths as well as those from covid-19, and fearful phone calls are coming in thick and fast from families of people with dementia through Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Connect support line.
