April 15, 2020

Mayflower Lifestyle staff have been using iPads to help many residents and family members stay socially connected using the power of technology during the current visiting restrictions.

Neil was grateful to have a heart-to-heart conversation with his daughter Sally over a video chat recently, using the app Bluejeans on the iPad.

Video calling has several benefits over traditional phone calls. Residents can see the faces of grandkids and other family members instead of just hearing their voices, making communication more personal and interactive. Video chatting also allows family members to check in on their loved ones and see how they are doing, which is particularly important during visitor restrictions.

If you haven’t tried video calling with your loved one yet, please contact your Lifestyle team and they’ll be happy to get you started. All you need is a computer or tablet connected to the internet.
