We're thrilled to see our Care Home Connections project move into the next phase of action, and are really grateful to the Baptist Times for featuring this article about how the devices can be used to connect residents to their loved ones and also to pastoral support.
Thanks to generous donations and supporters spreading the word, we raised £1,835 under the Aviva Community Fund crowdfunding appeal. We've now got lots of devices ready to send, completely free, to care home residents across the country to help them stay connected with their loved ones, without needing care home staff to help set up or supervise calls, combatting issues found with other forms of communication.
We've also published all the resources to get started, including "How To" guides for relatives and care homes.
If you know anyone with a loved one in a care home that could benefit from a free device or our resources, please do share this link and ask them to contact us.
HUGE thanks to Aviva, Crowdfunder, and everyone who supported us through donations and spreading the word, for helping make this idea a reality.
