One of the benefits of ReMe is the ability to engage the family. But we recommend that you do not invite families to participate until you are confident using ReMe. Therefore, carers should have run a number of Group Sessions using ReMe’s ReadyMade content and have started to create their own My Story profiles before doing so. This will ensure that they will be able to answer any questions that families may have (of course we’re there to support the families, but just in case …).
With data legislation tightening globally, it’s important to enrol those cared for in the right way. And that means that’s it’s preferable (unless a person with capacity is in fact managing their own affairs) that either a family member with responsibility, the fee payer or the person that holds the legal right to do so, enrols the person being cared for into ReMe
That said, naturally many care homes will prefer to do this themselves as part of their own client enrolment stage and post their own gained approval process. And many residents will not have family. In these cases the Enrolment by Carer page within ReMe is simple and easy to use.
Enrolling a resident via the family will ensure that you have been provided with the rights to use the personal data that ReMe will contain in the form of a GDPR compliancy providing tick box exercise.
Enrolling via the family will also optimise the amount of knowledge collected about the person cared for in ReMe from the outset, since the it includes collection of the following key data;
- My6 (which collects their answers on six defining pieces of knowledge about the person, such as favourite food, music, places, etc.),
- Caring for Me information (ie likes, dislikes, mood, habits, routines, etc.),
- GDPR data
- Care Circle set up information.
And lastly, of course having the family undertake the enrolment process saves time, as well as promotes to your clients your committment to person centred care and exploring new technologies for this purpose.
The following provides information on how best to invite the family to enrol the resident into ReMe.
