Providing high-quality care for residents is the utmost priority for care homes and nursing facilities. The Care Quality Commission’s (CQC) Key Lines of Enquiry (KLOEs) is a framework that helps inspectors evaluate whether a service is safe, effective, caring, responsive, and well-led. Improving your rating or maintaining an Outstanding rating requires going above and beyond the standards set by the KLOEs.
We explore how technology, particularly Tiny Tablets, can help you achieve this goal. By using Tiny Tablets alongside the KLOEs, you can potentially improve your rating or maintain your Outstanding status.
We will demonstrate how Tiny Tablets are safe, effective, caring, and responsive and how they can deliver evidence-based well-being treatment and activities guided by our own Project Well Being training.
We will focus on how Tiny Tablets can help you overcome the challenges of keeping residents hydrated in summer, reduce the risk of falls, and reduce the distressing effects of sundowning. By incorporating Tiny Tablets into your digital care plans, you can involve service users more in their daily care requirements, promote social interaction and confidence, and provide an innovative approach to using technology to improve person-centered care.
Let’s delve into the world of Tiny Tablets and discover how you can use them to enhance your care services.
As care providers, one of the most important responsibilities we have is to ensure the safety and well-being of our residents. The Care Quality Commission’s (CQC) Key Lines of Enquiry (KLOEs) help inspectors assess the quality of care provided in a setting. One of the key areas that the KLOEs focus on is the safety of the service users. In this blog post, we will be discussing how safe our Tiny Tablets are.
One of the concerns that care providers may have when introducing new technology into their setting is the safety of their residents. At Tiny Tablets, we understand the importance of safety and have taken every measure to ensure that our devices are safe for your service users.
All of our Tiny Tablet models have been “Topple Tested” to ensure that they are sturdy, robust, and most importantly, safe for your service users. We understand that service users may have varying levels of mobility and may require assistive devices, such as hoists or lifters, which can cause vibrations and movements. Therefore, our Tiny Tablets are designed to withstand these movements and remain secure in their mounting brackets.
A 5mm Tempered Glass Screen further enhances the safety of our Tiny Tablets, as it can withstand even the most heavy-handed of users. In addition to this, safety mechanisms are in place on all moving parts, and an extremely robust swivel bracket prevents any unexpected accidents.
Infection control is of utmost importance in any care setting. Our Tiny Tablets are designed with this in mind and have an easy cleaning routine in between uses to stop cross-contamination. The tablets are wipeable, and a soft-bristled brush can be used to clean the swivel bracket thoroughly.
At Inspired Inspirations, we understand the importance of safety in a care setting. Our devices have been designed with safety in mind and have undergone rigorous testing to ensure that they are safe for your service users. Our Tiny Tablets can provide evidence-based well-being treatment and activities guided by our Project Well Being training, making them a valuable asset to any care setting. By using our Tiny Tablets alongside the CQC Key Lines of Enquiry, you can potentially improve your rating, or keep ahead of the game if you’re already Outstanding!
Technology has been transforming the way we live, work, and care for our loved ones. Our Tiny Tablets are rapidly becoming an indispensable tool in the care of elderly individuals. As we all know, caring for the elderly comes with its unique set of challenges, but by using Tiny Tablets, we can effectively address some of the most pressing issues. We will explore the effectiveness of Tiny Tablets in enhancing the daily engagement of service users with meaningful and person-centred activities. We will delve into how they help improve nutrition and hydration, reduce the risk of falls, and decrease the distressing effects of sundowning.
Tiny Tablets are incredibly effective when it comes to delivering evidence-based well-being treatment and activities. Our team has developed the first-class Project Well Being training program, which ensures that service users are engaged in meaningful and stimulating activities that enhance their well-being. With access to a vast range of dedicated apps and free content available online, staff can provide a diverse and dynamic array of activities to keep service users active, engaged, and happy.
One of the significant benefits of using a Tiny Tablet is its ability to enhance nutrition and hydration for those who would usually refuse refreshments. By providing a distraction, service users are more likely to consume necessary fluids and nutrients, which can be a challenge in a care environment. Keeping residents hydrated, particularly during the summer months, is crucial, and Tiny Tablets have been proven to be a highly effective solution.
Another benefit of using Tiny Tablets is their ability to reduce the risk of falls in the elderly. Through the use of specialised apps and activities, service users can increase their mobility and strength, which reduces their reliance on pain medication and visits to the hospital. This is an excellent example of how technology can help people live healthier lives.
The use of Tiny Tablets is also highly effective in reducing the distressing effects of sundowning. Staff members are trained to use the activity table as a distraction by bringing up a familiar place on Google Earth or playing a song from a service user’s favourite artist on YouTube. This diversion can significantly reduce anxiety and stress, resulting in a better quality of life for service users. The use of Tiny Tablets is an innovative approach to care that can improve the lives of the elderly and support them in living healthier and happier lives.
the effectiveness of Tiny Tablets in the care of elderly individuals cannot be overstated. From improving nutrition and hydration to reducing the risk of falls and decreasing the distressing effects of sundowning, Tiny Tablets are a versatile tool that can enhance the daily engagement of service users with meaningful and person-centred activities. With proper training through our Project Well Being program and a range of dedicated apps and free content available online, staff can provide an exceptional level of care that improves the well-being and quality of life for elderly individuals.
One key aspect of care that the CQC evaluates is whether staff take the time to know and respect the people they are caring for. Using a Tiny Tablet alongside a digital care plan can help involve service users more in their daily care requirements. It has been reported that when service users are more engaged in their care needs on a large screen, they feel more involved and less like they are being spoken about. This is a key component of the “Are They Caring” section of the CQC questions.
At Inspired Inspirations, we provide a “My Life So Far” fact-finding document, which provides a whole background on a resident, including their needs, likes, and loves. This document can be used alongside a Tiny Tablet to settle in a new resident, finding engaging and enjoyable reference points using Google Earth, YouTube, Wikipedia, and Chrome. This then gives staff a huge roster of information and backstory on a resident, providing plenty of talking points for staff to bring up and increasing the bond and respect between service user and carer.
The use of Tiny Tablets can also help to rebuild confidence and increase social interaction. As we age, we may not have the same physical or cognitive abilities that we used to. For those getting additional care, this can result in a reduction in confidence and willingness to be involved in certain sociable activities. Engaging app-based technology that promotes gentle movements and stretching, such as jigsaw puzzles, can help rebuild confidence in hand-eye coordination. Using cognitive challenge or memory game applications, we can rebuild confidence in the ability to store information, increasing social interaction and confidence in cognitive ability and improving overall mood.
Another benefit of using Tiny Tablets in care homes is the distraction they provide to improve nutrition and hydration. It has been proven to overcome what can often be a challenge in a care environment, particularly with keeping residents hydrated in the summer. Staff can also use the activity table as an engaging distraction to reduce the instances of nursing home residents experiencing the distressing effects of sun-downing.
Using a Tiny Tablet in the care home setting can have a significant impact on the care provided to service users. From enhancing the daily engagement of service users with meaningful and person-centred activities to providing a distraction to improve nutrition and hydration, the benefits are clear. Additionally, using Tiny Tablets can promote the rebuilding of confidence and increase social interaction among residents, as well as providing staff with a useful tool to help them get to know and respect the people they are caring for.
Using Tiny Tablets in care settings can greatly improve responsiveness to the individual needs of service users. By using digital care plans and online profiles, staff can quickly and easily access information about each resident’s personal history, preferences, and hobbies. This information can then be used to create personalised well-being plans that are tailored to each individual’s needs.
The use of technology can also open up new opportunities for social interaction and engagement. For example, residents can use the Tiny Tablets to stream music, play games, or connect with loved ones through video calls. This can help combat feelings of loneliness and social isolation, which can be particularly prevalent in care settings.
In addition, using technology can help promote equality and respect for diversity by ensuring that activities and services are inclusive and accessible to all. Staff can use the Tiny Tablets to download apps, live stream religious services, or find media that is relevant to each resident’s background and culture.
Overall, the use of Tiny Tablets in care settings can greatly improve responsiveness to the individual needs of service users. By providing personalised activities and services that are tailored to each resident’s needs, staff can help promote well-being, engagement, and social interaction. Additionally, the use of technology can help promote equality and respect for diversity, ensuring that all service users receive the best possible care and support.
One of the key aspects of a well-led service, according to the CQC’s lines of enquiry, is having a clear vision and strategy. By incorporating a Tiny Tablet into a care setting, care leaders can effectively plan and monitor meaningful, person-centred activities for all service users. This brings an extra strategic approach to ensure that everyone in that setting has access to a more engaging day-to-day life in care.
The incorporation of new technology into a care environment can bring new possibilities for care staff to engage with. Although this can bring some trepidation for some, others see it as a huge opportunity to enhance their work life and, most importantly, the lives of those they care for. By using technology, care staff can monitor the progress of service users’ activities and adapt their strategies accordingly.
When a service incorporates a device like a Tiny Tablet, the opportunity to continually improve is endless. The possibilities for new and exciting apps arrive every day on the Play store, and care staff can tailor these to the individual needs and interests of service users. Additionally, the use of technology can facilitate communication and collaboration between care staff, family members, and service users.
To ensure that the service continues to improve, care leaders can incorporate feedback mechanisms that allow them to track the effectiveness of their strategies. For example, they can gather feedback from service users, family members, and care staff to ensure that the activities and approaches being used are meeting the needs and preferences of service users.
Finally, it’s essential to have a clear vision and strategy for how technology will be used within the care setting. This can involve setting goals for the incorporation of technology, outlining the benefits of using technology, and providing training and support for care staff to use technology effectively. By doing so, care leaders can ensure that the service is well-led and that service users are receiving the highest quality of care possible.
