PAPER visitor books in care homes could soon be a thing of the past – thanks to a new reception app developed by a Fareham company.
Digital agency MediaBase Direct has launched an electronic replacement for the traditional sign-in book.
It is transforming reception areas and giving them a modern, hi-tech feel and allays concerns over the lack of privacy for visitors and residents in an open visitor book.
And it is already being taken up by a string of care homes across the south, including Willow Lodge at Emsworth.
Laurence Bohmer, business development consultant, said: ‘Our Care app has been designed and built to work with all ages and to innovate the traditional sign-in process, compliantly.’
Stephen Geach, proprietor of English Oak Care Homes which runs Willow Lodge, said: ‘The tablet device sets a modern impression of our business to all visitors.’
