Contract caterer Elior launches interactive sensory tables into care estate

2nd Feb 2023 - 06:00
Elior UK is rolling out the introduction of interactive sensory tables into its retirement living and care homes, following a successful trial at Anchor extra care locations.

The Mobi interactive sensory table is a portable projection system that can be used on any surface- a table, the floor or a bed. Users can engage in over 150 different activities ranging from painting flowers and walking through fish filled water to playing games such as football or shove penny.

Laura Tighe, Elior’s managing director for health, care and residential living, said: “We are always looking for innovative ways to enhance our offering for our clients and their residents and these interactive tables are a wonderful way to enrich the residents’ day and create a fun way for our team to interact with the residents in their care.”

The Mobi interactive sensory table won the National Dementia Care Outstanding Project Award in 2018 for the opportunities and benefits that it created for people at all stages of dementia.

Pete Newman, catering contracts manager at Anchor, added: “We were excited to trial these interactive sensory tables at our extra care locations. The feedback from the residents was wonderful and our care teams were delighted to see the joy and positive impact created by this innovative and engaging projection system.”
