App to tackle loneliness wins social care Dragons' Den contest

An app that helps families separated by geography stay in touch with loved-ones at risk of loneliness triumphed in a recent Dragons' Den-style contest to identify innovative solutions to adult social care's funding crises.

The Mindings system enables people to send texts, emails, pictures and social media messages to a digital screen in the home of a loved-one so they can stay in touch. It is targeted at families where there is a relative who does not use mobile phones or social media themselves.
In the competition run by East of England local government efficiency body Improvement East, it beat off competition from, among others, Just Checking, a system that enables families and professionals to monitor service users in their own homes through wireless sensors.
The "dragons" - in this case a group of health and social care leaders - said they thought Mindings was a "powerful tool in addressing loneliness". More information is available on the Mindings website.
