Brendoncare Foundation

Brendoncare is a registered charity, committed to improving the quality of life for older people through care homes, close care facilities and social clubs across the south of England.

Dedicated to the care of older people through eleven care homes and 90 clubs, Brendoncare look to combat the isolation and loneliness that many people experience in later life. A ‘care for life’ promise means that if a resident runs out of money, the foundation will continue to support and care for them.

Otterbourne Court Care Home is Brendoncare’s latest property, providing nursing and dementia care for up to 64 residents in the Hampshire village of Otterbourne.

Largely staffed by volunteers and working on a tight budget, Brendoncare approached Airwave to supply a quality patient entertainment system that wouldn’t break the bank.

We needed to be mindful of budgetary requirements but also wanted to provide a well-known brand name for the residents at Otterbourne Court, the compromise being the non-smart Samsung 470 hospitality series.

Samsung’s HGEE470 Series features a slim, modern design and is compatible with Samsung’s LYNK REACH 4.0 information system.

This compatibility is key, and will enable Otterbourne Court to install an interactive information system at a later date when required.

Interactive information systems are a useful commodity in care homes, providing residents with easily accessible and updatable information such as daily menus, events and news.

Airwave supplied and installed 50 x 32EE470 displays in time for Otterbourne’s official opening in the summer of 2018.
