Person Centred Software helps families keep in touch with loved ones in care over the festive period
Guildford, UK – 18th November 2019: In the run up to Christmas, Person Centred Software is helping families keep in touch with their loved ones to combat loneliness in care homes through its online Relatives Gateway portal.
The Relatives Gateway is a secure online portal, part of the Mobile Care Monitoring service from Person Centred Software, that enables friends and family of those living in care homes to stay informed about their care as well as share messages and photos to keep in touch.
The Relatives Gateway aims to also improve residents’ emotional and physical health. Over 80% of adults with mental health problems in UK nursing homes suffer from loneliness, according to research by a University of Bedfordshire student in 2015. And loneliness is as damaging to people’s health as smoking 15 cigarettes per day reports the Campaign to End Loneliness.
