Lincoln care home keep in touch with family with new tabletsResidents at HC One’s Willow Court care home have been getting to grips with technology by using video calling on the new Amazon tablets.

After receiving a number of Amazon tablets, the Colleagues at the Lincoln home got them set up right away so that the Residents could use them to speak with their loved ones.

Letters were also sent out to the Relatives of the Residents to ensure they knew how to access the app on their own tablets and mobile phones at home, so they would be able to receive the video calls.

Once this was all up and running at both ends the Residents really enjoyed being able to use the tablets to speak ‘face to face’ with their families.

One Resident commented “It’s great to see my daughters face and chat”. Jean another Resident said “It was lovely to see my son”.

It was a very emotional day and great to see the Residents being able to interact with those they love again, they all reacted brilliantly to the new technology.
