Staying connected to family and friends is top priority

Technology is worth its weight in gold as it keeps residents of  Edendale Lodge care home in touch with loved ones and friends.

Staying safe and away from the risks and dangers of the coronavirus  Edendale Lodge is in lockdown, but it hasn’t stopped residents touching  base with those who are most important to them.

Embracing Facetime, Skype, email, and making more traditional  phonecalls, has developed into the normal routine for residents, for  some who have only just learnt to use and handle such technology.

Theresa Toal, registered care manager at Edendale Lodge says:  “Technology has been an enormous benefit in helping our residents stay  in contact and updated with the lives of family and friends. You can’t  understand how uplifting this is, and has been, to not just our  residents but their families and friends who are comforted by the  contact.”

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.
