NorseCare residents embrace interactive technology

As part of NorseCare’s commitment to providing innovative and modern technology to support residents living in its care homes, a new motion-activated projection system has been installed at Mayflower Court at the Bowthorpe Care Village in Norwich.

The omiVista Mobii Interactive Projection System, which displays images, music, games and quizzes, is designed to stimulate, engage and encourage active participation.

Kate Grange, NorseCare’s Dementia Lead, said: “There are so many ways the team at Mayflower Court can use the system with residents.  It’s great that it is portable and height adjustable, so we can use it in lots of different areas of the home.  It’s already proved to be an exciting enhancement to the already busy activities programme that we have at the home.”

Karma Wensley, Manager at Mayflower Court, added: “The care staff have picked up how to use the system really quickly, and it’s so interactive.  We’ve had residents painting, playing bubble games and watching fish on a coral reef – it’s really lovely to see.”

Mayflower Court provides care and support for up to 80 people living with dementia.
