Wi-Fi is available for us throughout the home. Valerie Manor has four touchscreen computers, enabling residents to keep in touch with their families and friends by email and Skype. Communal computers are located in the Conservatory and Library, and two are available for use in the privacy of resident’s own rooms.

Each touchscreen computer runs PointerWare software. This software is designed with first-time elderly computer users in mind, hiding the complexity of the Windows operating system with a simple user interface with just five onscreen buttons for Email, Internet, Photos, Phone and Games.
