Heather (Activity Co-ordinator) contacted Cherie Denton, Community Relations Coordinator for Vauxhall Motors to ask if they could donate a laptop and she was very surprised to hear Cherie say yes, we have one here that you can have.
Cherie came to present the laptop and travel case to the residents who are getting very excited as they have relatives living as far as Australia and France and there are plans to have Skype set up with a web cam on it so their loved ones can see them and talk to them frequently.
Heather also plans to have email connection so loved ones can send a message and pictures thus enabling them to keep in touch more often. Even relatives who live in England are welcome to use this facility.
Heather also plans to use the laptop for 1-1 sessions on picture quizzes and reminiscences.
