How It All Started

Originally developed to support the founder’s mother-in-law, the news and photos on the Family Display help reduce feelings of anxiety and isolation, as well as provide practical help to family members with keeping in touch.

USE CASE

How we helped Pat

Pat is an animal lover who lives in a care home. She is physically disabled following a stroke and has a very poor memory – borderline dementia. Her family live far away but she has friends locally who normally pop in to see her in the care home. They use FamilyNewsNow to post photos of family and reminders of special days. It is helpful not only to care staff but also to other visitors, giving them a focus for conversation and reminiscing. Since Covid-19, friends are also asking if they can post news to the Display … they can!
