Visitors are such an important part of daily life for residents and when New Zealand has been in lockdown and families couldn’t pop in for a chat – Ambridge Rose was quick to respond.
Technology used by people all over the globe was introduced to Ambridge Rose and residents could experience family-time with Zoom calls on our tablets. Aroha was intrigued to see herself and her daughter on a tablet – to have a virtual visit, with her daughter who lives across the Tasman Sea.
At The Villa, our activity assistant Josephine made a kind gesture and came to work during her own time to help a resident see his daughter-in-law’s funeral service.
Technology definitely doesn’t replace human contact, but it is a great way to fill the gap when we can’t all be together in one place, for many different reasons.
