“I was tasked with finding our care home community an interactive activity table. Future Visuals were extremely helpful in supporting us to find a table within our budget and were a very quick and responsive company to work with. We found the price to be considerably cheaper than other companies I had been browsing and delivery was prompt. Our residents have benefitted greatly from the interactive table and staff are also rather keen on it! We would highly recommend Future Visuals.

since having the table delivered the service users are very intrigued in it and what it does. They are enjoying having lots of different things to do on it from playing games, listening music on YouTube and looking at street maps of where they used to live. The table has also increased the 1:1 time with our activities co-ordinator by playing games with each other rather than in a group. With the table being portable it does not restrict where it can be used. The service users are attracted to it due to the size of the screen and the portable aspect of it. When service users are having 1:1 time with our activities co-ordinator other service users are watching and wanting to get involved. The table is easy to use and can be used by all.

We were delighted with the interactive touch tables that we purchased from Future Visuals earlier this year. From our first enquiry the team were informative and gave us an excellent demonstration, they sought to understand our use case and the needs of our residents. The tables arrived quickly and the delivery team set them up so that people we support could try them out immediately. So far our residents have used them to do video chat with friends, family and health professionals, they have taken part in large group activities on Zoom and are using them to experience a great selection of puzzles, games, and sensory activities. Having a touch screen makes a huge difference and we are certainly seeing the benefits already’

“We have recently implemented the HI-LO interactive tables into our homes with
Our residents really enjoy playing on the touch table, singing karaoke as well as
solving puzzles and completing quizzes individually or in a group environment.
We find the table really improves the mood of our residents and helps them work and
play together around the touch table at the same time.
They are great in aiding our residents living with sensory impairment and
encourages their general rehabilitation and independence!
We have been able to increase activity time and availability without increasing our
staff’s workload…we will be implementing this solution from All Office Ltd into all our
homes across the UK.”

The table has been a huge success. We are all amazed at how quickly our residents have embraced the technology and every day we find new ways to use it.
Everything from a game of draughts, crosswords, wordsearch and solitaire to joining live group sessions on Zoom and You Tube. Big favourites at the moments are ‘Who wants to be a millionaire’ and travelling around the world with Google Earth.
It has also proved to be useful for our staff team. We have used it for Microsoft Teams meetings & training sessions.
We are delighted, it has made a real difference to our resident’s wellbeing at this difficult time.

Care home residents in Rochford have a new giant interactive table to further enrich their lives and engage them in fun digital experiences.
Stambridge Meadows Care Home, set in beautiful countryside off Stambridge Road, has recently taken delivery of a giant interactive table that is designed to keep residents’ minds active and combat social isolation.
With a wide range of apps and games, ranging from puzzles to sensory experiences, the device offers something for everyone.
Stambridge Meadows has also utilised the interactive table during reduced visiting throughout the last few months of the pandemic. Thanks to its 40-inch screen, it makes video calls with families a much more enjoyable experience. The table has also enabled the home to enhance its virtual live entertainment programme and interactive activities offering.
The device has many features and even gives residents access to Oomph! On Demand, our digital activities platform, with interactive quizzes, exercise classes and a wealth of historical content.
Enhancing Wellbeing with Virtual Experiences
Many residents have used the interactive table to view the streets they were born on and track how they have changed during the years. Some residents have even chosen to visit favourite holiday destinations, or visit places they may never have been able to see in person.
The Stambridge Meadows residents are also able to engage in multi-player games and activities which helps to bring a sense of camaraderie and of course, healthy competition!
Patsy Munyard, manager of the home, which is on Stambridge Road, Great Stambridge, said: “We continually are looking at ways we can expand and enhance activities and experiences for our residents.
“We saw this interactive table on social media and thought it would be a fantastic addition to the home’s amenities.
“It is proving great for stimulating the residents’ minds and encouraging social interaction with one another as well as their friends and families with improved video calls.”
Resident Joan Winsor said: “I am loving the interactive table. It is so much fun and much better than a standard-sized tablet. It is brilliant and my favourite activities are the puzzles and bowling game.
