Getting started with the Care Team Tablet 

Prior to getting started with engagement, it is important for members of the care team to feel comfortable controlling the tablet. For those that have experience using a smartphone or tablet, many of the concepts and features will be familiar.  

If you have the Care Team tablet nearby, follow along with the following lessons to ensure your understanding of key features.

The Home Button

The circular button on the front of the screen is known as the Home button, and is central to navigating the tablet. As you just learned, the Home button is used to wake and unlock the device.  

The Home button is also used to exit apps. When you unlock the tablet, available applications display on the Home Screen. From the Home Screen, you can tap on an application to open it.

When you are ready to exit the app, press and release the Home button to return to the Home Screen.

Volume Buttons

When the tablet is positioned horizontally (landscape) in the case, the oval shaped volume buttons are located on the left side of the top edge. The button on the left increases the volume, and the button on the right decreases the volume.

Power Button

When the tablet is positioned horizontally (landscape) in the case, the oval shaped Power button is located on the top of the left edge. To power the device on and off, hold the Power button down for approximately 5 seconds.  

It is rare that you need to power down the tablet. If the tablet is not working properly, it can be helpful to power it off and on. Otherwise, during day to day use, you can leave the tablet on and conserve battery by putting it into sleep mode.

Audio Jack

The tablet has built-in speakers to play audio for music and videos, but you can also connect accessories for audio output. When the tablet is positioned horizontally (landscape) in the case, the audio jack opening is located on the lower left edge.

By inserting headphones into the audio jack, you can listen to sounds from the device without disturbing others. You can also use a 3.5 mm audio cord to connect the tablet to an external speaker.

Power Connector

The tablet gets approximately 8-10 hours of use on a full battery charge. The battery life displays as a percentage in the upper right corner of the screen.  

To charge, insert the charging base station into the wall and the Lightning charging cord into the power connector. It takes approximately 5-7 hours to fully charge the iPad.  

Unlike some other electronics, it is safe to charge an iPad overnight; the device will stop charging once it reaches 100% battery life.
