Care Technology

At The Cambridgeshire Care Home we use a carefully selected range of modern care technology to ensure we provide the best possible personalised care for our residents. When on shift our care staff are provided with an iPad so they have access to every residents Life Story and can update care notes in real time. Below is a list of some of the technology the Cambridgeshire Care Home uses:

Our care home is WiFi enabled and there is full wireless connectivity throughout the home. Residents can use their own devices to access the internet enabling them to browse websites, chat via programs such as Skype or FaceTime, shop online, and to log onto email so they can stay in touch with family and friends, no matter where in the world they may be. This allows for better digital inclusion and increased social engagement and communication.

Hospitality System

First Care Homes is proud to be working with myo to improve our communication with relatives. myo enables our caregivers, wellbeing team and other staff to share photos and videos of our residents with their relatives. Whether it’s catching a glimpse of time with friends, being a part of a trip around our gardens, or even witnessing an appointment with the hairdresser, myo gives families an insight into those routine moments in our care home that often go unnoticed. Families can use the app to comment on posts directly, bringing them one step closer to life in the care home. This is a great motivation for our caregivers and a source of real comfort for your loved ones, who we pass the comments on to. This interaction with you is vital to our dedicated team as we continue to work to deliver first class care to each and every one of our residents.
