Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

Activities Are So Important

Your loved one will be experiencing the world differently to you do.  The connection between objects and their actions which we take for granted are a cause for major frustration for people with Dementia.

We take a personalised approach and seek to learn what activities might be meaningful to them, creating joy and promoting independence.

Throughout the year there are celebrations and activities.  Seasonal favourites include; Easter bonnets to make; fireworks on bonfire night; pantomimes and cards at Christmas.

The activities calendar includes Pianist and other musicians playing old songs, quizzes, animal therapy, craft making and art classes and gentle therapeutic exercise sessions.  The Hairdresser and Chiropody is available as arranged. Once a month there is a church service with communion followed in the afternoon by a church choir to lead hymn singing.
