Dorset Council has teamed up with social day care providers to issue a range of digital devices to thirty residents to enable them to take part in virtual one-to-one sessions with carers and to attend online day centre activities.
Joan, using an Ethel, said “What I’m really looking forward to is having a video call with the day centre as I miss them very much and it will be lovely to see them again”.
