One of the projects supported by the Monaghan County Council Covid-19 Emergency Fund was the provision of IT Tablets to all HSE care homes and support provided to others right across the county to facilitate contact between residents and family members that had not been possible due to physical distancing requirements.
‘On behalf of Cavan/Monaghan Mental Health Service and the residents of the New Blackwater House, I wish to thank you for your kind donation of Samsung Tablet. The tablet has already been used to link residents with their families, this has been an invaluable resource particularly when family members are unable to visit at this time. ‘
