Person Centred Software has launched a ‘Who I Am’ feature as part of its Mobile Care Monitoring tool.

The feature aims to help staff provide a more responsive and personalised quality of dementia care and improve residents’ quality of life.

It enables care homes to share information about residents’ routines, life story and wishes from the care plan with carers via the mobile application. Personalised routines help when caring for people with dementia, assisting residents to maintain their daily functions and minimise anxiety.

Jonathan Papworth, co-founder and director of Person Centred Software, said: ‘It became apparent to us that whilst administration software helps care providers’ efficiency, it doesn’t actually help those delivering care. Social care really only exists because of these people, so we decided to focus on improving the lives of the care staff users. With the new capability of ‘Who I Am’ at their fingertips, carers have all the information they need to further help and support their residents.’

The feature has been modelled on Alzheimer’s Society’s ‘This is Me’ tool and other profiles that are used in social care to improve the quality and ease of information sharing.
