Daydream
Believer
There is a warm-hearted story from the care sector going viral at the moment. And we admit to being very delighted. A care worker from Wansbeck Care Home, Choppington is singing the Monkees' 'Daydream Believer' and dancing with one of the residents during a regular night shift at the home. The home's manager posted the video on their home's page and Lee and Pat now have more than 220,000 views.

This morning, a prime time daytime show spoke with care worker Lee and called him a true care home hero. And stuff like that goes straight in here with us, so we much appreciate the positive vibe from national and local media. Keep it up!

The Chronicle has posted more information and also the video showing the song and dance here.

An astonishing sidenote to the story is that Pat's (the resident) brother Ron had emigrated to Canada after the war and hadn't seen her in about 70 years. He then came across this video and got back in contact with her and now says he'd like to move back to the UK - to spend out the rest of his days with her.

5 characteristics of a Super User

When enabling care services through acquisition of new technology, and making that vital change from paper or admin-centric systems to a digital solution at the point of care, it’s important to remember how change requires management directions and supporting structures. One of those being the Super User or IT Champion. We prefer the first term, as IT has very little to do with succeeding in “going digital”.
