Residents and families closer together through Portal+ tablets

Friday 18 June 2021

Committed to bring residents and families closer together, Colisée ordered more than 10 000 Portal+ devices, which are being distributed to each nursing homes over June and July 2021.

Portal+ is a device from Facebook, with a large screen (15,6″), an easy-to use interface, a video-conference system automatically adjusting to the speaker, and integrates applications such as Messenger or Whatsapp.

Other features include scrolling through photos, listening to music, sharing a story with augmented reality effects, participating in group calls, remembering birthdays, etc.
Privacy has also been thought of. Video calls are encrypted, the microphone is easy to disable, as is the camera which can be obstructed by the lens cap.

Easing communication between residents and their relatives through digital solutions is one of the first step to make each of us feel at home 🏠
