We’re no longer just supporting our clients’ innovation through our work – we’re on the innovation journey ourselves. We’re building an online SaaS platform based on the principles of reminiscence therapy and designed to make a life-changing difference to older people globally. It’s especially valuable to people with degenerative disease or in palliative care, but has the potential to build valuable life-enhancing connection and empower self-determination for any older person.
It’s about legacy, story, connection and self-determination.
Reminu (reminisce about you) was inspired by our extensive work in preventative health and wellbeing for older people, and specifically by a project with people with lived experience of dementia and their carers.
Reminu is currently at advanced prototype stage and is commencing testing with older people with different lived experiences, with groups provided by, and content informed by, organisations dedicated to each user group.
Imagine an online service that helps you create albums that capture your past, your present and things for your future. Reminu creates an online album without the clutter and concerns of social media, and guides you with topics and prompts and does all the techy stuff while you just focus on capturing and telling stories, memories and messages for now and the future. You can create it yourself or with others, and share it on your terms.
We know that connection and self-determination are key to our health and wellbeing, and countless studies are proving this for all ages – but especially for older people. Experts across a wide range of health, wellbeing and ageing arenas tell us Reminu will increase quality of life, grow connection and even help manage the impact of degenerative disease. But it’s also for celebrating and remembering things we care about, bringing joy and happiness.
Reminu is designed to be different things to different people.
For some people it’s different things for different parts and times of life – personal, family, community, and even education and work.
