Smart Technology in Care Homes

In an era of rapidly evolving technology, smart devices like Alexa have emerged as invaluable tools for improving the overall well-being of care home residents. These devices offer a multitude of benefits, ranging from providing entertainment through music and quizzes to connecting with loved ones through calls.

Currently, we are working on a project that seeks to harness the potential of these devices to enhance both the physical and mental health of individuals in care settings.

We need your feedback!

One of the goals of our project is to create a centralised hub of educational resources. These resources aim to not only highlight numerous ways in which Alexa can positively impact the lives of care home residents but also provide step-by-step instructions on utilising its various features effectively.

We have developed an informative step-by-step guide and would greatly appreciate any ideas or suggestions you may have to enhance its clarity and accessibility. Your input will contribute to the creation of resources that are not only informative but also user-friendly and inclusive.

Join our focus group!

We extend a warm invitation to individuals interested in actively participating in this project. Whether you're a care home resident, a family member, or a dedicated care home staff member, your experiences are invaluable. We are looking for voices from various perspectives, be they positive or constructive, to join our focus group. Your participation will play a pivotal role in refining the accessibility of smart technology and addressing any challenges that may currently hinder its widespread adoption. To express your interest or provide feedback on our draft poster, please email
