Avery Invest in Interactive Tablets on Wheels

Avery is delighted to share that several homes have recently invested in ‘Tablets on Wheels’ technology for residents to use whilst physical visits are temporarily halted. The interactive touchscreen – with an all-electric hi-lo trolley and electric tilt – offers a multitude of benefits for Avery residents. Such as creating new communication opportunities, breaking down language barriers, creating greater inclusion and engagement, providing new opportunities in supporting residents through sensory activity, reminiscence and life story work, and allowing residents to keep in touch with friends and families through Skype and Facetime.

Avery’s Head of Well-being and Activity, Zahid Khan, said: “I think during this period of COVID-19 having touchscreen technology in our homes has been invaluable. It has assisted in keeping families connected with loved ones as well as assisted in meaningful one to ones for the resident when group activities had to be limited”.

One of the homes gifted with this technology is Newcross Care Home in Wolverhampton. Home Manager, Shirley Gibbs, commented: “I believe that this will open up lots of new ideas for the staff to engage with our residents. The tablets are large and portable, meaning they are beneficial for residents to use around the home, including those who are bed-bound. The games are also fun, interactive and provide great stimulus, both mentally and physically.”
