Residents go digital

Residents in our retirement living homes now all have access to the internet after WiFi and new computer equipment was installed.

The computers and internet access were installed by the Ongo IT Team as a measure to reduce social isolation in older people.

Helen Wright, our Support Services Manager, said: “It’s brilliant news that we have been able to provide all our sheltered schemes with WiFi and computer equipment.

“For many of our tenants, having internet access will be how they keep in touch with family who do not live locally.

“We’ve held sessions in a number of our schemes to teach our tenants the basics of getting online and how to get the most out of using the internet."

This is just one of the ways in which we are helping to demonstrate our commitment to reducing social isolation with our older tenants. Other initiatives have included an annual Dine & Dance event, coffee mornings and games sessions.
