Friends Of The Elderly
“Our interactive table has a large 32-inch colour flat screen. A group of our residents like using it together and work as a team to play Word Search and others love watching Google Earth looking at different types of cars. It’s also great for our residents whose eyesight isn’t very good.
I supported a relative of one of our residents in putting a USB stick together with a collection of photos of his loved ones and friends. When we played it on the table for him to watch, his whole face lit up. We use Spotify and one resident’s family put a playlist together for her. The other day she started telling me that the particular song that was playing was a favourite of hers and that she used to do the ironing to it at home. Now we can play it for her during activities or to cheer her up.”
