Residents at a care home in Littleport are getting to grips with a pair of brand new iPads - and they’re already giving staff a run for their money.
Staff at Laburnum Lodge, in Victoria Street, have purchased two iPads to help residents with dementia keep active, with a host of apps downloaded for them to use.
So far, residents have turned their hands to games of dominoes, done some painting and even a spot of online shopping.
And staff member, Martin Vilson said that some residents were already challenging the top scores – despite only having the devices for two weeks.
He said: “We have residents here who suffer with dementia and they have really enjoyed downloaded some apps and playing games on the iPads.
