One of our many clubs at The Lawns is Computer Club.
Every day the computer is used on a one to one basis or group activity. Our residents use it for reminiscence, favourite music and to look at anything they find of interest. Ipads are also a great way to make technology more accessible. Families can keep in touch through email and we regularly update our activities on our Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/TheLawnsOfficial/
It is such a popular and excellent activity especially residents with dementia. There are a lot of Apps available which are fantastic for people with dementia. They improve dexterity, memory and recollection.
The residents particularly connect to music. One resident’s face lit up when she heard a favourite song. Another gentleman resident who doesn’t speak much, started singing along when he heard a song from his childhood. Amazing moments.
