Significant improvement in health: How Motiview helped my mother

Sunrise Senior Living and Gracewell Healthcare participated in a Sport England funded project, having several of their care homes trying out Motiview during a 3 months intervention. 

A clear improvement in health & wellbeing

Having 8 of their homes partaking in the project, feedback from the homes saw benefits both on physical and mental health – as well as on social wellbeing. 

“We have had great feedback from residents that have been using the Motiview technology” says Asa Johnson, working as Project Manager Activities and Memory Care at Sunrise Senior Living. “People were actually queuing up in the morning to use the technology.”

A letter from a daughter

At one of the homes care staff receive a lovely email from one of our relatives telling how much her mother is benefiting from Motiview – what a lovely read to start the morning:

“I have been meaning to write to you for some time now to express our joy at how much pleasure our mother is getting from her almost daily cycling trips around the world. The positive impact of the sense of achievement at being able to increase daily distances, (in our mothers case the ability to cycle over 10km a day when suffering from lung fibrosis) is as good a tonic as any traditional medicine. The fascination of visiting and re-visiting places around the world in such a personal and vivid way provides a daily sense of anticipation and delight. We cannot praise this program enough and would want to congratulate you for arranging the trial of such a remarkable product. We know you do so much at Sunrise to inspire the different residents to pursue old and new interests; in our mother’s case, this is the first hobby that has really made an impact on her, giving the opportunity to escape life’s trials into real journeys and real physical achievements”

80 % reduction in falls

The feedback from staff and residents showed improvements both on physical, mental and the social wellbeing of their seniors. When Sunrise looked into the falls data for one of their homes, comparing falls data before and after the introduction of Motiview they also saw a strong reduction in falls, going from 33 to 6 – a 80 % reduction.
