Keeping In Touch
Our award-winning team ensure our residents stay connected with family and friends through regular video calls, wherever they are
Despite the temporary halt to visits into our homes, we are delighted to be able to facilitate regular video calls alongside the carefully controlled family visits which take place within the grounds of our care homes.
We are doing everything we can to ensure our residents stay connected to their friends and family through virtual video calls. We have invested in more technology so that all of the homes can host video calls over platforms such as Skype and FaceTime.
We encourage people to make use of our tablets and wi-fi to hold regular video calls across Skype and FaceTime, and for residents who are not familiar with this technology, our Homemakers and Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coaches are on hand to help run these calls.
By incorporating the latest technology into our state-of-the art luxury homes we can ensure that our residents and families can stay connected, wherever they are.
“It’s a blessing that we live in a time where we have things like FaceTime, Zoom, WhatsApp and Skype to help us stay in touch. At the beginning of this difficult period, we put our heads together to work out how we could offer as much contact as possible for residents and their families. We knew it required care and attention from our staff, an investment in technology and good communication with families.”
- Dean Champion, Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach, Nesbit House
