Peverel Court Care introduces touchscreen technology to benefit residents at Peverel court care

touching tabletPeverel Court Care is proud to inform you that we have introduced Apple TV in our homes in addition to the longstanding iPads. There is a scientific reason for introducing touchscreen technology in our homes. Research shows that this technology can greatly improve the quality of life of older people, particularly those diagnosed with dementia.

What do researchers say?

Researchers from the Association for Dementia Studies at the University of Worcester have discovered that introducing and getting residents to use touchscreen technology in care homes is beneficial. The key is making sure the introduction is done properly.

Care home staff require the right training and support in this technology to spread the benefits among the residents. Some of the benefits include:

  • Music apps and games such as Pictionary can help care staff calm and reassure residents and also keep them engaged. These apps can be used in group settings to bring residents together to enjoy themselves and have fun.
  • Care and activities can be customised to meet the needs of the resident.
  • Touchscreen technology fosters greater interaction between staff and residents. It encourages staff to increase the number of residents in each activity without feeling overwhelmed or burdened.
  • The technology lets residents stay in touch with their family and relatives.
  • Staff can use touchscreen technology to involve family members in the care plan of the residents.
  • The technology can trigger positive memories and facilitate conversations between residents as well as staff and residents.

Peverel Court Care aims to deliver exceptional elderly care. Our staff receive superior training that allows them to provide person-specific elderly care to enhance the lives of our residents. The touchscreen technology in our homes helps us customise our activities to improve the quality of life of our residents through increased interaction, better communication and greater inclusion.
