The Facebook portal is a smart video calling device. Smart sound enhances the voice, so background noise is minimised, producing a great quality video call. Calling family and friends is easy through Facebook or WhatsApp calling. If you are a service provider, the portal requires you to set up a Facebook page for your calls and add the family and friends of the people you support.
See below for a Facebook Portal case study of 2 sisters purchasing a portal for their Dad who lives in a Care Home:
During the Coronavirus lockdown 2 sisters got their Dad a Facebook portal so they can keep in contact during isolation. Their Dad lives in a care home and struggles using his iPad and mobile phone. Facetime was proving to difficult to use due to finding it too difficult to operate. Their Dad has said that he really enjoys using the Portal and it is as good as having a visit. It has been easy to set up which staff at the care home can help with. Having the Portal has proven to be crucial during lockdown, by having this technology can help reduce isolation and loneliness, especially during a time with such uncertainty.
KOMP is a one button computer perfect for people who do not have experience in using technology.
The whole family can easily connect to the device through an app and send photos, messages and make video calls. A problem that we are facing is that technology is difficult to get used to, it is proving to be important to prevent loneliness and social isolation since COVID-19, and so it is difficult to reach out to those who do not want to use technology. This one button device has a high contrast screen and clear audio, making it easy to see and hear family.
