iPad technology in our care homes
Anchor are always pioneering the use of modern technology. We provide the older people living in our care homes with access to Apple iPads as part of our on-going commitment to person-centred activities, meaningful engagement and the highest quality of dementia care.
Pioneering the use of iPads in our care homes
The introduction of Apple iPads into our care homes has enabled staff to connect with residents in a variety of new ways and enhanced our programmes of personally tailored activities for everyone.
These hand held devices provide Anchor care home teams with access to a huge range of new resources allowing activities to be better tailored to customer’s own interests and life experiences.
We are finding that using iPads is a great way of helping capture our residents living stories, keeping residents in touch with long distance family members and improving communication with residents whose first language is not English.
iPads are also used to help our care homes deliver the highest quality and standards of dementia care.
Delivering a range of positive outcomes including increased interaction, greater inclusion and improved communication with relatives.
