Having enjoyed a successful collaboration with McGoff & Byrne and Barchester Healthcare in the provision of technology theSpires care home in Lichfield, Airwave was delighted to once again, assist in Barchester’s latest project.
The Queens Manor care home is located near Edinburgh Airport and designed to offer high-quality residential care to older people, including individuals living with dementia.
With a careful focus on the stimulation of resident minds, Queens Manor offer sensory gardens, activity kitchens and a “Memory Lane Community”, featuring “memory boxes” to help residents remember their past and reminisce.
“TV is sometimes perceived as an idle pleasure” said Airwave sales director Paul Chambers, “however on this occasion we were mindful of the power of television content and its ability to stimulate and stretch the mind. ”
With this in mind, Airwave recommended 43” LG SMART TVswith ultra-high definition, HDR technology, ultra-luminance displays and access to over-the-top content such as Netflix, catch-up TV services and Amazon Prime.
Further increasing the portfolio of available content, Airwave implemented a Sky-In-Room service, offering hundreds of extra premium channels, including Sky Sports and Sky Entertainment.
Each TV was wall-mounted securely and safely, minimising the TV’s footprint and maximising the resident’s safety.
