Residential Care Home Providers

Link-ages has been designed to improve well-being in the Care Home Setting

When older people move into residential care it can make it more difficult for family members to visit as regularly as they would like. Nevertheless, it is essential that families remain connected, and whilst nothing can replace face-to-face visits, digital communication can be a great tool to keep in touch with loved ones and reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation.

Link-ages and your home

Link-ages has been carefully created and designed to respond to the sometimes unique needs of older people in residential care. Our safe and responsive platform enables everyone to benefit from digital communication in an easy-to-use and private way.

Alongside communication, Link-ages enables the sharing and revisiting of precious memories, providing a stimulating activity and helping to encourage conversation with carers, friends and family.

Home Care Providers

Link-ages is highly beneficial for those receiving care in their own home

It is common for people receiving care in their own homes to feel socially isolated. Lack of mobility and other physical conditions may mean that people are less able to engage socially. Lack of knowledge, experience or confidence with technology may put individuals off using the digital platforms many of us take for granted.

Link-ages for Home Care Providers

Link-ages has been designed and created to address these needs. Our safe and responsive platform enables everyone to benefit from digital communication, in an easy-to-use and private way. While no substitute for face to face visits, Link-ages can enhance and strengthen family relationships by enabling regular communication.

Also, the calendar features allow reminders of visits by carers and family and the photo gallery can provide stimulus for conversation and reminiscence.

Retirement Communities

Link-ages enables residents of retirement communities to benefit from technology in a safe and easy way

Moving into a retirement community can allow older people to share activities, make new friends, and make the most of their retirement, in an environment designed to blend the best of independent living with a supportive environment. Adding Link-ages to your offering allows your residents to share their lives with friends and family, keep up to date with news both from inside and outside the community, and provides and engaging activity to stimulate memory and conversation with staff and other residents.

Link-ages for your Community

From updating your residents on the latest event, to sharing pictures of a recent trip with family members, Link-ages can enable your community to bring everyone together and benefit from technology in a safe, private and unique way. Our custom-designed system keeps your residents, staff, and families secure, allowing you to bring the very best of online communication without any of the risk.
