Residents at Mayflower Court, where NorseCare provides care and support to up to 80 people living with dementia, have been enjoying the new omiVista Mobii Interactive Projection System which displays images, music, games, quizzes and much more.

The system works by projecting dynamic images on to a clear, clean surface and is designed to stimulate, engage and encourage active participation by those who use it.

Kate Grange, NorseCare’s dementia lead said: “There are so many ways the team can use the system with residents. It’s great that it is portable and height adjustable, so we can use it in lots of different areas of the home. It’s already proved to be an exciting enhancement to the already busy activities programme that we have.”

Karma Wensley, manager at Mayflower Court added: “The care staff have picked up how to use the system really quickly, and it’s so interactive. We’ve had residents painting, playing bubble games and watching fish on a coral reef – it’s really lovely to see.”
