“I have been a Care manager for 33 years and by far, this is the most interesting and informative piece of work I have ever had the privilege of being introduced to. It captures every aspect of the person and creates the personalised care plan with them at the centre of this. Being able to project the personalised care plan onto the wall was a great benefit.

In circumstances where the Service User has the ability to use the system they are 90% capable of operating the system themselves and during its use within the care home, the Service Users showed some reluctance in giving it up.

In the cases where the Service User was less able, it has been so easy for the staff to grasp the concept work with them.

I have been inspired by its content and look forward to its continued use in stimulating and occupying our Service Users.”
