When Vida Healthcare introduced new measures of non-essential visits and closed the care home to visitors and family members it was a difficult time for everyone. Residents and staff had to face new times of not seeing the residents family and friends on a daily basis, this isn’t something we envisioned, ever, at Vida Healthcare. However, the team wanted to ensure that relatives could keep in touch with their loved ones and so Skype was introduced to each house. Now residents can Skype with their loved ones and have the face to face interaction through the technology of video.
