€500,000 has been invested so that nursing homes are at the forefront of innovation

In Auribeau-sur-Siagne, nursing home residents enjoy a variety of technological tools. In order to improve the quality of life in geriatric institutions, the Alpes-Maritimes County Council decided to invest 500,000 euros in the purchase of devices.

At Ehpad in the Alpes-Maritimes in Auribeau-sur-Siagne, the staff provides residents with various technological tools. They make it possible to improve everyone’s quality of life and ease the work of caregivers.

In the common room, the 72 residents can spend quality time around Tovertafel, nicknamed the “Magic Table”. The images are transmitted by a video projector. This one, which is equipped with infrared sensors and amplifiers, displays the images on the table. This tool allows residents to play together.

“It’s a need, relax,” Denise, the nursing home resident, convinced.

“It really helped strengthen the social bonds and communication between residents,” said Leticia Ray, director and psychologist at Bastide de Moulins nursing home.

Technological tools can be used regardless of people’s level of independence. “We use new technologies in all aspects of our daily lives such as fitness and rehabilitation,” says Charlotte Clarett, director of the foundation.

The newest acquisition of the facility is an automated seal that reacts to the caresses of the residents.

“We noticed a decrease in depression and anxiety, as well as less expression of stress and less negative verbalization,” says Laetitia Ray.

The use of these new technologies with the residents of the Alpes Maritime nursing home is an idea for the department board. The latter decided to invest 500,000 euros in the acquisition of innovative devices for these enterprises. The creation of Bastide du Moulin in Auribeau-sur-Siagne aims to continue its path towards new technologies. “We have other projects, such as the acquisition of virtual reality glasses,” promises Charlotte Clarett.
