Haslington Lodge care home in Greenhithe has developed a creative solution to allow friends and family to ‘look in’ and meet face and face to catch up.
Called the Looking Window it is just that, a large ground floor window perfect for face-to-face meetings with the safety of glass between those that are meeting.
Adam Hutchison, managing director at Haslington Lodge says: “Our residents have been able to stay in touch with family and friends via technology such as Zoom, email and telephone, but nothing quiet replaces that face to face human contact.
“For the residents and staff this has been the perfect solution to allow those connections, relationships, and friendships to blossom once more, and all in a safe and secure environment.”
Taking into consideration, and abiding by, the current government social distancing requirements the Looking Window operates on a booking rota where time slots are booked and allocated for residents and relatives to meet.
Belmont Healthcare offers multiple forms of long, short, respite or day care for those in need, specialising in Dementia, Parkinson’s and Specialist Elderly Support situated in delightful settings around the UK.
