Care home residents in Rochford have a new giant interactive table to further enrich their lives and engage them in fun digital experiences.
Stambridge Meadows Care Home, set in beautiful countryside off Stambridge Road, has recently taken delivery of a giant interactive table that is designed to keep residents’ minds active and combat social isolation.
With a wide range of apps and games, ranging from puzzles to sensory experiences, the device offers something for everyone.
Stambridge Meadows has also utilised the interactive table during reduced visiting throughout the last few months of the pandemic. Thanks to its 40-inch screen, it makes video calls with families a much more enjoyable experience. The table has also enabled the home to enhance its virtual live entertainment programme and interactive activities offering.
The device has many features and even gives residents access to Oomph! On Demand, our digital activities platform, with interactive quizzes, exercise classes and a wealth of historical content.
Many residents have used the interactive table to view the streets they were born on and track how they have changed during the years. Some residents have even chosen to visit favourite holiday destinations, or visit places they may never have been able to see in person.
The Stambridge Meadows residents are also able to engage in multi-player games and activities which helps to bring a sense of camaraderie and of course, healthy competition!
Patsy Munyard, manager of the home, which is on Stambridge Road, Great Stambridge, said: “We continually are looking at ways we can expand and enhance activities and experiences for our residents.
“We saw this interactive table on social media and thought it would be a fantastic addition to the home’s amenities.
“It is proving great for stimulating the residents’ minds and encouraging social interaction with one another as well as their friends and families with improved video calls.”
Resident Joan Winsor said: “I am loving the interactive table. It is so much fun and much better than a standard-sized tablet. It is brilliant and my favourite activities are the puzzles and bowling game.”
