We’re delighted to tell you about our sister business
Occupational Therapy and Home Care
The idea for Let’s Chat began in early 2020 when Sarah and Sophie, as experienced Occupational Therapists, were no longer able to go into Care Homes to deliver their multisensory reminiscence groups. They wanted to be able to continue to provide cognitively stimulating activities and to support engagement and connection during the pandemic which has been so isolating in so many ways. They were introduced to Tony, our director, through a mutual contact and had some discussions about bringing Occupational Therapy into his home care business, Sambhana Care. His philosophy, of a holistic style of care, totally resonated with their way of working. He was excited about the potential of Let’s Chat and wanted to get involved. He wanted a digital format that would be simple for everyone to use and so a new business was born Let’s Chat.
What is Let’s Chat
Let’s Chat is delivered in video format on either dvd or digital download to care homes, home care environments, and individually to loved ones in their home. They are designed to provide a unique opportunity for connection of an older person with their companion through stimulating conversation.
You receive two Let’s Chat videos with every purchase which are perfectly suited for people with a recent diagnosis of dementia or for those who have attended an NHS Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) course.
The themes provide interesting conversations and focus on reminiscence to stimulate conversations. Content themes might include:
- A nice cup of tea!
- Pancake Day
- The Seaside
- Bonfire night
- The Circus
- May Day
Let’s Chat will provide you with a positive opportunity to build in some relaxed conversation time to your normal routines.
Benefits for your loved one or residents in your Care Home
- The conversations that start during the video can continue to be enjoyed over time.
- The videos are an accessible way to think about a variety of topics.
- Through sharing a Let’s Chat video you can support your loved one or residents to remember and recall memories, improving and maintaining their cognitive and emotional well-being.
- Why not enjoy Let’s Chat with your grandchildren? It will give you lots to talk about with them and will stimulate sharing stories from the past which can make for interesting conversations.
