Innovative ideas to keep residents safe but connected with family

Last year, we shared a BBC news report showing an innovative way one of our customers is keeping family visits possible through the pandemic, in a Covid-secure environment. As well as assisting residents to communicate via tablets connecting to the WiFi, Hamberley Care Homes have gone a step further and set-up ‘Visitation Suites’. The suite has a separate external entrance, pre-temperature checks and health screening, plus a rigid cleaning process between visits.

Once inside the suite, a clear screen from floor to ceiling keeps the resident safe, with GHM supplying hands-free desk phones on both sides. The set-up allows families to have a good old catch-up as they would normally without the need for specialist equipment.  

Simple yet effective communication solutions make Covid restrictions a little easier to cope with in these challenging times.

And to prove that modern technology doesn’t always need to be complicated, Hamberley were delighted with the retro style GPO handsets GHM installed in Reception phone boxes. Those of us of a certain age miss those rotary dials to make calls, now possible again at Hamberley Care Homes.
