How does the Activities App solve care problems?
Activities given the same importance as care
The information that activities staff record is visible for care workers, feeds in to the manager’s monitoring system and informs care plans. With activities information being shared widely, valuable insights into service users’ life history and participation and enjoyment of activities are known by everyone involved in their care and ensures they are receiving the most appropriate and person-centred care.
More time spent on activities with residents
Activities staff can schedule any activity on the Activities App for multiple service users as a group, and evidence it within the Activities App, rather than spending time writing on paper. The time that is saved on paperwork can be spent providing more time for activities for residents.
Provides valuable insights
Recording activities electronically gives the ability for this information to be used in other parts of the Mobile Care Monitoring system. For instance, using the Activities App, service users’ location during activities can be monitored to ensure that they have time outdoors every day, which has been shown to improve residents’ mood and wellbeing.
