Sue Barton, Manager at Oak Alyn, Cefn Y Bedd said, “Having the iPads here at Oak Alyn have made a huge difference to the residents. We have had one resident who has been able to FaceTime both of their children, one living in Wrexham and the other in Hong Kong at the same time and have a 3 way conversation – this was really fantastic. Another resident was able to FaceTime their relative in Australia who they haven’t seen for 8 years – this was a really emotional call!!”
Katie Williams, Activity coordinator Lindan House Care Home, “What a difference this has made to the residents, as well as being able to keep in touch with their families we have also been able to download some activities on to the iPad that the residents can enjoy taking part in and they are thoroughly enjoying this, we have had one lady sing a long to Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen!!”
