Loved ones reunited at Grace Care Centre

One of our residents was delighted to see her very close friend, Ruth, after months apart. They both enjoyed a catch up over a cup of tea and a biscuit. It is fantastic to see smiles on faces as loved ones are reunited again. 

Grace Care Centre reaps benefits of innovative Magic Table

Grace Care Centre reaps benefits of innovative Magic Table

A cutting-edge Magic Table has been introduced into Grace Care Centre over the past few weeks. The digital touch-screen device allows users to play interactive games and has been proven to encourage social and physical stimulation.

The product is also portable, which has proven particularly useful at a time when lockdown measures across the country have made it difficult to run varied activity programmes.

Leanne Duffety, Head of Dementia Care at Grace Care Centre, said: β€œSince the introduction of our Magic Table a few weeks ago, we have seen a positive effect on the well-being of our residents with reduced anxiety, apathy and restlessness.”
