Succesfull Stonewater and SovaCare pilot
The innovative interactive digital tables have had an overwhelmingly positive response from all of their residents. Many have formed new friendships through the multi-player activities which encourage people to chat, share memories and have fun together, while others have enjoyed playing games at the tables with their grandchildren. ‘Perhaps the most rewarding part of this experience has been seeing our residents with dementia discussing the old adverts and shopping brands they used years ago,' says Joanna Gooch, Stonewater’s Assistant Director of Housing Strategy. 'It’s sparked some great conversations and helped them to relax, reminisce and engage in a meaningful way with other residents, their families and our staff.’
SovaCare’s ExperienceTable, is already a success in the Netherlands, and the product is gaining traction in the elderly care sector in Europe and South Korea.
