COSLA's Health and Social Care Spokesperson, Councillor Stuart Currie, has welcomed the provision of digital devices to care homes across Scotland.
He said: “The use of technology has been a central part of the response to COVID-19 in health and social care.
“In care homes, we have seen welcome initiatives that have supported connection and communication for residents and for staff at a time where this has been particularly challenging.
“That is why we are working to ensure that care homes have the connectivity and the devices needed to further develop and support these efforts, both during the pandemic and in the longer term.
“COSLA will continue to work with the Scottish Government and partners throughout the sector to support this important aim.”
