Chorus Homes is installing Wi-Fi in its accommodation for older people, enabling residents to interact with friends and family.
The project is funded by Places for People.
Chorus Homes’ accommodation is being future-proof to provide the facilities that the next generation will require when they are looking to move into alternative accommodation.
Digital mentoring sessions will be offered to residents who would like to develop their skills.
Digital technology continues to transform our lives, particularly with regards to how we communicate, work, access services and spend our time.
It's increasingly important for older people to have the digital access, skills and confidence they need to live an independent life.
Sonya Fitt, Chorus Homes Head of Customer and Support Services said,
“Digital literacy can help grow people’s confidence, independence and wellbeing, giving them greater choice and control over their lives. At Chorus Homes we recognise that a digitally inclusive community is important to economic and workforce development, education, and healthcare”.
