All care facilities implemented visiting bans, trying to limit Corona infections – so we donated tablets to three of them in Unna, in an effort to enable residents to see and chat with their friends and relatives.

(PresseBox) (Unna, 27.04.20) Visits to residential and nursing homes are strictly prohibited in the Corona crisis. Grandchildren haven't seen their grandparents in weeks, children separate their parents and even spouses from the virus. Access to video telephony could be established via a smartphone or a tablet, but only very few residents have such a device. The company ExTox Gasmesssysteme GmbH from Unna has now donated a total of six tablets to the senior care home in Obermassen (SPHO), the St. Bonifatius residential and care home in Unna and the Unnaer Heilig-Geist-Hospiz. 

Ludger Osterkamp, ​​Managing Director of ExTox Gasmesssysteme GmbH in Unna, explains: "Our company is doing well despite the Corona crisis, so we just wanted to pass something on." With this idea, he came up with Anke Jauer, who works as an economic development officer in the Unna district in the Competence Center Woman & Profession Competentia has many contacts to the local companies through her work. She made contact with both Alice Kurpas, owner of the mass nursing home, and Matthias Kloos from the Catholic Hospital Association. He in turn referred to the Unnaer St. Bonifatius-Heim and the Heilig-Geist-Hospiz. "The participants then discussed exactly what made sense and ExTox then got the appropriate thing - much to the delight of everyone involved," says Anke Jauer about this campaign. 

The joy of the donation is huge - even among the elderly, who can now finally speak face to face with their relatives. But the donation is also well received by the doctors: “The tablets have now made it possible to offer an online medical visit. This reduces personal contacts and thus the risk of infection” explains Alice Kurpas from SPHO. And so this donation works twice as well!
