“The feedback from residents and their families has been incredibly positive. While we have limited visiting in our care homes, Famileo is helping families stay in touch. It is especially important for those family members who are unable to visit easily.”
David Moore - Dementia Lead- Methodist Homes MHA
Activity coordinators love it...
"Famileo is fantastic! Famileo makes me look so creative, because all the residents think I am the one doing it and of course I take credit for it. All my Monday mornings are now dedicated to Famileo: I print them, then distribute them. I sit down with the residents and we talk about it and take time to chat together. They let me know what is going on in their families' life. The families love it and because all the grandkids are techy, it takes them 2 minutes to upload a photo. It is brilliant. The pictures, the quality of the gazettes...it's absolutely brilliant. It is so easy for me and looks so professional and very PERSONALISED."
...and so do families!
"My mother has dementia and now does not really know who I am. Doing the newsletter/gazette does not only help my mother in seeing old and new pictures of the family but it also helps me in sending them. It is as if she can remember when I write a piece about each photograph and share those with her, each bringing back a memory of an event that we had shared. It is a way of talking to my mother although miles apart and knowing that she will be able to see what I am sending in printed form, to look through over and over again. Thank you"
