RCH Care Homes have launched the new Maulden community at Manton Heights Care Centre, in Bedford.
The 18-bed Residential Dementia community, combines person-centred care in a warm and compassionate setting, with the latest innovations and service and technology to offer rewarding, life-enhancing experiences.
Manton Heights Care Centre and the RCH Care Homes Group, are a family-run group of Care Homes whose values of Respect, Care and Honesty are at the heart of the services.
The home has partnered with a number of high-tech and innovative services using the latest university-led research to offer residents the chance to enjoy healthy, vibrant and fulfilling lives.
They include, The Digital Rainbow a giant touch screen that offers fun therapeutic benefits through games, images and sounds.
The Motitech Bike system which lets users use safe indoor bikes, set up with screens to allow them to tour the world; exercising in a fun, gentle way with beautiful sights and sounds.
Immerse Health Headsets which use Virtual Reality technology to allow the resident access to whole new and old worlds; whether the user wants a calming, restorative environment, a familiar ‘day trip’ or even canoeing from the comfort of your armchair.
The final innovation service is the Famileo. Like a personal, secure Facebook setting, multiple family members can share messages, photos and more, while the resident can also reply. Once a week, the lifestyle teams can print all of that week’s messages to produce their very only Gazette. This personalised newsletter, in digital and print form, is hugely popular.
Rachael Smith interim General Manager shared the home’s excitement at the opening of the new community,
“All of the team are excited about the opening of our new Maulden Community as it’s a contemporary area where residents can interact as part of a community and use the technology and innovative services to enrich their well-being. Our priority is to deliver person centred care and promote independence and we look forward to welcoming our guests”
