Hartford Care invests in bringing digital delights to its 16 care homes

Leading care provider Hartford Care has teamed up with well-being specialists Oomph! and the Digital Rainbow to equip its 16 care and nursing homes with the latest digital technology, designed to improve, enrich, and enhance the lives of its residents and teams.

Each home now has an interactive table provided by The Digital Rainbow, which delivers digital delights to residents and team members using a wide range of Google Store apps.

The care homes can download the apps most suitable for their own individual needs, for example, organising a games session, accessing a range of quizzes, or enjoying a musical concert.

The interactive table, which resembles a giant iPad, is also designed to improve the wellbeing of residents living with dementia with specialist sensory and reminisce apps through which they can touch, explore colour and listen to music.

Equipped with a rechargeable battery, each table is built on wheels, allowing it to be moved around. This enables even those residents who are confined to their rooms to enjoy all its digital activities.

Hartford Care’s care homes now have full access to Oomph!’s new digital platform, Oomph! On Demand. This platform provides engaging exercise and activity content 365 days a year across a diverse range of topics, meeting a wide range of interests and abilities.

Care teams can support residents tuning into live and recorded seated exercise sessions including activities like ballet, chair yoga and mindfulness. Residents can also enjoy a wide variety of activity resources – fromm virtual tours of Scotland to language lessons, from history talks to music concerts.

The site is full of interactive quizzes, activity ideas and an interactive activity calendar that can be selected according to a desired wellbeing goal or a resident’s interest.

Kevin Shaw, CEO of Hartford Care, says:

“It’s been an exciting time for us as we introduce Oomph! and the Digital Rainbow tables in all our care homes. It’s a huge investment for Hartford Care but both products will greatly enhance the well-being and lives of our residents, their families, and our teams.

“Having so many exciting and ground-breaking new resources at hand 24/7 will ensure everybody has non-stop enjoyment helping them to live their best lives with us.”

Jonny Milburn, Managing Director of the Digital Rainbow says:

We are delighted to have been chosen by Hartford Care to assist with this project and seeing all the lovely feedback so far.”

Matt Hamblin, Business Director at Oomph Wellness, comments:

“We are excited to be partnering with Hartford Care to drive person centred wellbeing in the homes and ensure that staff and residents have access to inspirational wellbeing activities 24/7, 365 days a year. Oomph! will work closely with Hartford Care to ensure we are constantly providing meaningful engagement across every home.”

Already, the digital tables are proving a huge hit at Hartford Care’s homes. Kay Jerrams, manager of Ashley Grange Nursing Home in Downton, Wiltshire, says:

“The digital table is the best thing ever to happen to care homes. Our residents are currently having a great time bowling on it. It really a fantastic way to engage and inspire everybody.”
