Giant tablet to stimulate memory nursing home residents: "It will be fighting to play with it".
Forget about Bingo or a game of cards. In the Ambroos residential care home in Hofstade, the residents have recently started to have a giant tablet to enjoy themselves. The interactive Experience TV activates elderly people in a playful way and stimulates them to social interaction. But more importantly: the tablet stimulates the brains of (demented) residents. "It will be a struggle to play with it", predicts director Mieke Vandorpe.
