For families: you can help!
Use your knowledge to enhance your loved one’s care.
In COVID times, residents are feeling isolated, saddened and anxious about not seeing family, and being removed from the routine. You know your loved one, their likes and dislikes and key life experiences that make them who they are.
Here is what you can do:
1. Upload meaningful content
Log in to your Deva dashboard to build a lifestory to assist carestaff. Personalize your loved one’s sessions by uploading images, photos and videos and that your loved one will enjoy. We’ll send the dashboard content straight to the DevaWorld app! It’ll be waiting inside the world for their next session.
- fill in five themes boxes to capture your loved one’s life story
- upload images to trigger memories and bring pleasure
- add favorite videos from YouTube for joy and reminiscence
- upload notes and video messages from your smartphone or tablet, to reduce isolation and encourage wellbeing.
By customizing your loved one’s profile, you will be assisting care teams to deliver person-centred care each time they run a DevaWorld session – helping your loved one live well with dementia.
2. Follow the progress
On your Deva Dashboard, you can see the outcomes of all sessions, including durations, date and time, staff comments. Follow progress and see trends overtime.
3. Enjoy sessions together
Whenever you are physically with you loved one, bring your tablet (Android or iPad) with you and have a DevaWorld session together, guiding your loved at their own pace. READ our ‘Hints and Tips’ guide first. You will be amazed by the communication bridges you’ll build !
Install the DevaWorld app onto your tablet (iPad or android) device. It’s a free download!
How to do all this?
Joining your loved one’s care circle is easy.
Your care organization (assisted living, home care, etc.) will send you an email invitation with a link to create your login and password.
You’ll then be able to connect to your Deva Dashboard.
