Care home residents can now Skype and FaceTime with their families, thanks to the gift of a Samsung galaxy tablet.
Karen Powley, manager at the Mount in Aylsham, said it had raised everyone’s mood during the uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic.
She said: “The home is on lockdown so our residents are not seeing their families.
“I was absolutely delighted when I was asked if we would like a free tablet so that our residents can keep in touch with their families.
“Our residents are delighted they can finally see their relatives again. It might only be on a screen but it has raised the mood of individuals.
“I would like to say a big thank you to Aylsham Round Table members, without whom we wouldn’t have this great opportunity.”
