Winscombe Hall Care Centre, in Winscombe Hill, has installed the new Tovertefel technology, known as a magic table.

The ground-breaking technology projects images and games onto a table which enables residents to interact.

The social interaction reduces apathy and supports positive emotional wellbeing.

The games also engage the residents in gentle muscle and joint movements which improve their suppleness and flexibility.
