The current health crisis has had a major impact on the daily lives of our elderly people. Retirement homes and nursing homes bring together people who are at high risk of infection. As a result, family visits were quickly banned or highly restricted. Many residents have been struck by loneliness, not always understanding the reasons for this abrupt isolation, or why they can no longer see their loved ones.
In this context, Telegrafik has decided to bring joy and good humour to care homes by making the Sunday solution available to them free of charge. The application allows residents to stay connected with their families by receiving news via photos and videos.
How does it work?
Telegrafik supports the establishments in the set-up of the solution, and then its use.
First of all, you need to download the application on your tablet or smartphone. Then simply create an account for each resident and invite their relatives to join the group. The relatives can then send messages, photos and videos to their elderly loved one to keep them up to date with what is happening in their lives, share their adventures. Thanks to new technologies, distance is no longer an obstacle to communication!
By activating the “PLAY” mode, it is possible for the resident to view all shared moments at once, from his room or apartment, in order to enjoy each moment as often as they wish.
Practical solutions to maintain resident morale
This tool saves time for the establishment’s staff, with a single device for managing messages received from families, and provides daily comfort for residents.
The application makes it possible to set up a new part of their daily routine that will be full of emotions!
It is well known that loneliness has serious consequences for the health of the elderly, both physically and psychologically. One thing is certain: a family presence is crucial, sometimes even vital to the well-being of elderly people.
Today, technology offers solutions that are increasingly simple to use, easy to install and that guarantee data protection. On top of that, it allows care homes to take care of their residents, put a smile back on their faces and let them know that we are always thinking of them. Tech-Care!
