Hartford Care puts some Oomph! into its care homes

Care provider Hartford Care has teamed up with wellbeing specialist Oomph! to equip its care homes with interactive tables.

Hartford has installed tables provided by The Digital Rainbow in each of its sixteen homes. The devices are designed to improve the wellbeing of residents living with dementia via specialist sensory and reminiscence apps through which they can touch, explore colour, and listen to music.

Each table is fully mobile, allowing residents confined to their rooms to enjoy digital activities including Oomph!’s new digital platform, Oomph! On Demand, which provides exercise and activity content throughout the year. Content includes seat exercise sessions that incorporate ballet, chair yoga, and mindfulness. Residents can also enjoy a wide variety of activity resources – from virtual tours and language lessons to concerts and history talks.

Hartford Care CEO Kevin Shaw said: “It’s been an exciting time for us as we introduce Oomph! and the Digital Rainbow tables in all our care homes. It’s a huge investment for Hartford Care but both products will greatly enhance the well-being and lives of our residents, their families, and our teams.

“Having so many exciting and ground-breaking new resources at hand 24/7 will ensure everybody has non-stop enjoyment helping them to live their best lives with us.”

Jonny Milburn, managing director of The Digital Rainbow, commented: “We are delighted to have been chosen by Hartford Care to assist with this project and seeing all the lovely feedback so far.”

Matt Hamblin, business director at Oomph! added: “We are excited to be partnering with Hartford Care to drive person centred wellbeing in the homes and ensure that staff and residents have access to inspirational wellbeing activities 24/7, 365 days a year. Oomph! will work closely with Hartford Care to ensure we are constantly providing meaningful engagement across every home.”
