Residents at The Lawns Care Home in Oadby have recently enjoyed receiving updates from their loved ones with our new Magic Moments Club App on our iPads. In addition to many other fantastic features, the App has been designed to help residents and relatives stay in regular touch by sending video and text messages and sharing photos and stories - which really comes into its own if relatives live far away or are on holiday.
Our resident Jean Clayton, 94, has been using the App recently to see messages and photos from her family. They send her photos regularly, particularly her grandson who often sends recent photographs of his small son Samuel, Jean’s great-grandson!
Magic Moments Club Coordinator Jackie Burden says, “Jean thoroughly enjoys receiving these photos, her face lights up when I enter her room with the iPad, as she now realises that I am bringing her a message or a new photograph for her. Jean loves receiving and looking at the photographs, so I print them off and laminate them for Jean, so she has them with her all time. Jean thinks the Magic Moments Club App is a brilliant thing to have.”
At The Lawns Care Home we believe in living life to the full. That’s why we’re passionate about creating vibrant, stimulating activities that will help our residents to love every day. We call them ‘Magic Moments’.
Every brighterkind home now has a Magic Moments Club which provides a vast range of activities and fun things to do that are open to all of our residents. The idea behind Magic Moments is that just because someone moves into a care home doesn't mean that the things they love doing should suddenly stop – quite the contrary, we believe our residents should have the opportunity to love every day, by doing the things that they have always loved as well as trying new things along the way.
