Wellbeing means many things to many people. But to us, it’s a driver for how you are – it indicates how you feel and, over time, how your general happiness can improve.
Sadly, there’s a lot stacking up against wellbeing, especially for people with dementia. Caregivers are often so bogged down with ‘admin’ and chores that reflections on wellbeing are an afterthought.
However, at Relish, wellbeing is our top priority for both people with dementia – and their caregivers. It’s what drives the thinking behind everything we create.
We’ve divided wellbeing into eight key levers (think of them as benefits), which each have a purpose. Some might be more relevant to one person over others – or one might need more attention than another.
But the thing they all have in common is the potential to improve wellbeing – on their own or in combination.
