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 in 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 and are available with an easy monthly subscription.
Our carefully planned videos are published every fortnight and provide cognitive stimulation via familiar themes and activities supporting people with dementia. You will receive two videos every month via email with direct access for you via any device, i-pad, tablet, smart tv.
Let’s Chat videos 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
Subscribing to Let’s Chat will provide you with a positive opportunity to build in some relaxed conversation time to your normal routines.
