As in most industries, better use of technology has the potential to save time, reduce risks and enhance experiences. There are opportunities, particularly for people living with dementia, to use technology to provide additional stimulation or promote memory recall. We have previously used donations to purchase an interactive projector for residents living with dementia which has enabled them to relive memories, watch old time movies and see calming scenery.
Further donations would enable us to install Solar Audio Enrichment Boards and solar bench electronic units. These outdoor boards facilitate greater engagement with nature through the sounds of birds and frogs and act as sensory cues and prompts.
