Leisure time at Queen Charlotte Nursing Home in Chickerell, Weymouth, has been transformed by a state-of-the-art “magic” activities table.
The giant, portable tablet is so versatile residents can play music on it as well as trying a host of absorbing, interactive games.
All three of Kingsley Healthcare’s homes in Dorset now have one of the £5,500 activities tables, the others being Branksome Heights, in Bournemouth and Highcliffe Nursing Home, in Highcliffe.
Tracey Millar, Kingsley’s operations manager in Dorset, said: “The table has brought huge value to our daily activities. Residents love the interactive games which they can play together or on their own.
“I think it’s amazing to see just how much you can do on the magic table.”

“There is a doodle application that enables residents to paint and draw, a piano music game and even special memory games for people with dementia. Most importantly, it’s really fun.”
She said the table is moveable and height-adjustable so it could be used by residents in wheelchairs or in bed.
