Anna C. Park

OM Interactive

After graduating with a First Class Honours from Leeds University, Anna worked in a group home for adults with LD and dementia before becoming a Day Services Social Worker in a Multi-Purpose Day Centre, running a programme of activities for older people, MH users and adults with LD.

She was instrumental in having the first interactive lightbeam/music system installed in a sensory room in her centre in 1996, completing a special study of the benefits as part of her Post Graduate Teaching Qualification.

Now a trainer and educator she is currently working as a Consultant for OM Interactive who are pioneers in the field of motion-activated projections, creating content for their systems and advising on product development. She passionately believes that technology can enhance person-centred care
by effectively removing a ‘them and us’ culture in care settings and providing inclusive multi-generational activities for all.
