On Demand is a Huge Hit at Madeira Lodge Care Home
On demand couldn't get any more interactive at Madeira Lodge Care Home as the company takes up the Oomph on Demand digital wellbeing platform.

Taking on-board residents' likes and dislikes, hobbies and interests, their age and experiences, the service offers everything from live-streaming armchair exercise classes, to on-demand TV featuring nature programmes, and hobby based shows and music videos. The plethora of entertainment on offer is ideal to take part as an individual or in a group activity.
Sarah Pennington care home manager says: "We're not missing out just because we can't go out, we've adopted this fantastic new service to add a bit of Oomph to our daily activity options, and now every resident can choose exactly what it is they want to do."
Residents have been taking part in armchair yoga, interactive quizzes, others have embraced the weekly newspaper, no ordinary newspaper though, one taken from an era residents have more of a connection with.
Sarah continues to say: "There's no chance of anyone getting bored, the entertainment on offer changes every month, has something for every capacity level, and is bespoke to the preferences within our care homes. It really is person centred entertainment, and our residents couldn't be happier with it. Just hope we can tempt them away when we are eventually allowed to venture outside."
The much anticipated unveiling and grand opening of the 1.5 million pound development transformation of Madeira Lodge will be this coming spring. The re-designed care home will offer the latest facilities and technology to support residents with dementia, and related illnesses, in a holistic and enabling space providing the best in dedicated dementia and elderly care in the area.
