Tuning In

Receiving Life Care Radio in a Nursing or Residential Home

There are several ways that you can listen to the service if you are part of the team in a nursing or residential home.  All of our services are free to homes and residents.  Our Free app can be downloaded from the app store or Google play.  We also have the Alexa skill if you have Alexa smart speakers in your home.  Additionally, we can install listening units in communal areas or day rooms.  To do this, we will need to link them into your wifi or preferably directly into a router and these listening units are pre-programmed with a link to our streaming.

We are also happy to set up a request round if we have someone available in your area, or you can send requests by email or phone. Please contact us (link to contact form) for more details.  

You can also download our ‘about us’ information sheet to look into more detail at how Life Care Radio may benefit your residents and clients.
