Introducing the OMI Interactive System
At Hollybank, our commitment to enriching the lives of our residents is a top priority. Recently, we've had the privilege of trialing the 'OMI Interactive System' - a revolutionary set of sensory products designed to provide meaningful activities for individuals of all ages and abilities. This system encourages movement, active participation, and shared enjoyment, fostering a positive impact on our community.
The OMI team received the prestigious National Dementia Care Outstanding Product Award in 2018, acknowledging the system's profound benefits for individuals at all stages of dementia. 🏆💙
To make this incredible system a permanent part of our community, we're embarking on a fundraising journey. The OMI Interactive System comes with a price tag of approximately £9000, and our dedicated management and care staff are actively exploring ideas and initiatives to raise the necessary funds.
While we're in discussions with local authorities and reaching out to local businesses, we truly value your input. Your ideas matter! If you have any suggestions on how we can make this fundraising effort a success or if you know of potential avenues for support, please share them with us. Let's collaborate and make a lasting impact on the lives of our residents.
Together, we can create a brighter and more engaging future for those we care for. Thank you for being a part of our journey!
