A BIG thank you to Jake from the residents and staff at Carnarvon Nursing Centre in Clacton. 17yr old Jake is a great boost to the Home he helps residents connect with the latest technology, keeping them interested and in touch with family members. Yvonne Wills, Activity Co-ordinator say’s ‘it’s great to see the way residents respond to Jake, he’s really making a positive impact on their lives’
And what does Jake have to say … ‘I enjoy coming into Carnarvon to help and talk to the residents. I feel like I am giving something back to the residents. I love to sit and listen to their pasts experiences and what their life was like before they had to come into Carnarvon. I have helped a few residents with their computers. I’ve also made some programs for a resident so he can get onto what he wants easier. I feel like I have made a difference to a few residents by setting up Skype so they can keep in contact with family members. I also enjoy teaching residents to use the internet’.
