"We had no idea what was available for people with dementia before a specialist nurse satdown and explained the options we had available for managing Hugo’s condition, such as devices and support. The support worker Sarah, based at the hospital in Andover, explained that we could have an Oysta Pearl which could be used both inside and
outside the home and would be funded by Hampshire County Council. I was astonished because I thought that everyone had to pay for the device themselves and pay for it to be monitored.”

The Pearl + is a mobile device backed by a cloud-based platform called ‘IntelliCare’ which features designated ‘safe zones’ for Vulnerable Independent People (VIPs) to travel, a fall sensor, location updates, status alerts, reminder messages and a one-touch SOS button.

It allows wearers the security to contact their care circle or the designated Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) should they require assistance or are lost or distressed.

“Hugo has been exceptionally receptive to wearing the device: He wants to do anything which would give me less anxiety. Before he takes Flossie for a walk “I still always say to him, “Have you got your lanyard on?” and he shows me he’s wearing it.”

Louise says she has twice been contacted by the ARC to say that Hugo had fallen, luckily this was due to him pressing the wrong button but it means they are both confident that should become less steady on his feet, and timely support will be at hand and she will be notified directly.


“Hugo is not prone to falling at this stage, but clearly as the disease develops that could change quite radically, and that is where I think the Oysta device will come into its own. Right now, he can play golf with his friends or take a walk around the village and chat to neighbours and I don’t have to worry because this device gives me peace of mind.”


Hugo’s recovery and health has been so impressive that that to this day, their doctor refers to him as ‘Miracle Man’ and uses Hugo’s brain scans as training on positive treatment.
