iPads

Lifelites iPads come with drop proof covers and are packed with special apps. There’s even an app to help non-verbal children communicate.

iPads donated by Lifelites are fantastic, because they are really portable. You can download different sorts of programs for different children with different abilities.” Liz, children’s hospice nurse

They are provided with a special drop proof cover and provide personal, portable technology that can be used on a wheelchair tray or anywhere around the hospice. Hospice at home care teams even take them with them when they visit children in their own homes. 

Best of all, the special speaking app means that those children who may never have been able to speak before can now tell their parents what they would like for dinner, that they don’t like marmalade or even that they love them.

I can honestly say that I have been astounded by the ability of our children to intentionally create music or virtually paint with their fingers on the iPads. Having the screen so close to them also immerses them in the experience they are creating and gives direct instant rewards that create a strong sense of cause and effect.” The Children’s Trust.
