Livability

Empowering and connecting care home residents

Livability is the disability charity that’s committed to enabling children, young people and adults to live a life that adds up for them. As a result of the national lockdown, they wanted to help their care home residents, who now could not be visited, stay connected with their loved ones through the use of video calls.

Livability provides individual care for a wide range of disabilities and needs, and in some cases this meant that carers needed to physically hold tablets for residents. While this helped residents stay connected, they lacked the normal privacy they would enjoy during a face-to-face visit, so a decision was made to seek a long-term solution.

The Brief

Livability’s fundraising team discovered our tablet carts online and got in touch to see if we could help with their current situation. They wanted to discuss ideas on how to give Livability residents more independence to help them tackle this everyday barrier.

Livability was looking for a tablet cart solution that could be wheeled between residents’ rooms, enabling them to make calls in private.

Livability also suggested that it would be beneficial for patients to not touch the cart or tablet itself, decreasing the risk of infection during the pandemic.

Key Project Criteria

  • Empower residents by giving them more independence and privacy.
  • Source an easy-to-move cart that can be used in multiple locations.
  • Tablet height and swivel adjustment was required so that the camera can be positioned to suit each resident.

Adjust to your preferred position

Height, tilt and swivel adjustment allows the tablet and camera to be positioned to suit each individual.

Can be used in multiple locations

Simple, easy to move cart that can be used in multiple rooms throughout each care home.

Empowering & connecting residents

Residents can now connect with friends and family privately, enabling them to lead a more independent lifestyle.

For this particular project, Livability requested a trial of one of the Link Tablet Carts so that they could test it in real-life applications. After some consideration and useful feedback from carers, Livability ordered several units for separate care home locations across the UK.

 

The Result

Livability is thrilled to see how this solution is giving residents more independence, helping them tackle an everyday barrier to create a more livable life.

The charity also appreciated the fact that carers can now work elsewhere during calls and tend to other residents.

Dalen Healthcare were delighted to work with Livability for such a fantastic cause and would be delighted to collaborate with them again in the future.

 

Why Choose Us?

Dalen Healthcare are committed to providing excellent customer service and have built a reputation for going above and beyond for our customers.

On this occasion, London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust were offered the chance of trialling the Laptop on Wheels before the initial rollout.

By trialling the solution, physiotherapists could discover the benefits first-hand in practical settings and provide us with invaluable feedback.

 

The Result

The initial rollout has been well received with all of the carts put into use immediately throughout the trust. Feedback from physiotherapists has been extremely positive and they have been excited to be able to engage with patients again despite challenging circumstances.

As a British manufacturer, Dalen Healthcare pride themselves on quality solutions and their ability to respond to our customer’s needs. This project was a prime example of how a customer could choose a specific product from our wide range of solutions and customise it to meet their criteria exactly.
