Springhill Care Home in Accrington held a ‘smartphone and tablet workshop’ recently to help our residents face their fear of computers!
First they learned how to sign into WiFi in order to browse the internet, then moved to using apps such as Google Maps. One residents used this app in order to look at the house he lived in when he was younger.
They then used YouTube to search for their favourite music and locations, before moving to Google searching for information on Accrington and Oswaldtwistle.
It was a fun and informative session delivered by Lancashire Adult Learning, and they managed to dispel a few misconceptions about using the internet.
Springhill Care Home has one more session left, but anyone interested in another should speak to our Wellbeing Lead, Victoria Huntriss at Springhill Care Home.
Remember that friends and family members can also sign up to this course.
