I'm having problems printing out my Daily Sparkles
For all printing advice and information, please refer to our printing guide.
How many copies of the Daily Sparkle should I print out?
This will vary depending on your individual care setting. We generally find that some residents like to have their own copy while it is always a good idea to provide at least one for staff members and another, colour copy, for the Visitors Book. For more advice on printing, refer to our printing guide.
What should I do if I dont receive my Daily Sparkle?
First of all, check your Spam and/or Junk folder. Sometimes, our emails may be filtered out by your email provider. If you still can’t find any email from us in your Spam or Junk folders, please contact us. We send out batches of Daily Sparkle in advance, so you have plenty of time to contact us before you should need to use them.
What are the benefits of customising the Daily Sparkle?
Adding the name of your care home to the cover of the Daily Sparkle helps residents to feel special and a part of a caring community. From a marketing and compliance perspective, a customised copy of the Daily Sparkle shows visitors and organisations such as the CQC that you are committed to enhancing residents’ quality of life by providing mental stimulation as well as physical care.
For more on how the Daily Sparkle can help with your home’s branding, see the What We Do page.
What are the carers notes for?
Carers’ Notes provide background information on the content featured within the Daily Sparkle. They also have suggested questions and prompts using both Reminiscence Therapy and Cognitive Stimulation Therapy. Carers’ Notes are especially useful for young and/or foreign employees who may need a little help in getting started.
Can I share my Daily Sparkle with other care homes?
No. The Daily Sparkles are supplied to specific locations and are for the sole use of individuals associated with that location. Distribution or sharing outside of this specific locationis strictly forbidden. Find out more in our T&Cs. You can contact us to discuss group/corporate subscription rates.
