Why are you excited by this project?
Glenda: We are working on how my app, Peggi, may be used in Care homes – it’s a multi-media app, designed for connection, to facilitate memories, legacies, life stories and reminiscences … and our opportunity will be to adapt this for use with the care workers in our two Care homes
What do you think will be your biggest challenge?
Luis: The biggest challenge is how to deal with changing culture by building on the many positive aspects of behaviours and knowledge that we have encountered and bring the Care homes to work together to build on each other’s experience.
How will you measure impact?
Luis: Eventually we will build our learnings into Glenda’s App by 2025
Glenda: We know the pressure on Care givers is tremendous. Embracing change is a real challenge but we know that, given time and care, we can start through communication and ‘baby’ steps to really support the workforce and make a real difference in the longer term.
