With elderly populations especially vulnerable to the coronavirus, senior living facilities across the country are limiting access for visitors. However, even going a day or two without seeing a loved one can be hard. Daily routines can be disrupted, and isolation can loom.
That’s why Shorehaven is introducing Operation Tech Connect: An opportunity to equip seniors with technology to help energize them with activities and games, and to help them connect with their loved ones when they are apart. We’re also offering two ways for you to partner with us:
- If you have an iPad or tablet you no longer use, would you consider donating it to Shorehaven to help seniors connect with family and friends? You can bring your device to the main entrance to the Shorehaven Health & Rehabilitation Center at 1305 W. Wisconsin Avenue in Oconomowoc between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. daily. We will disinfect all incoming donations and erase all data to help safeguard your information.
- You can also make a tax-deductible monetary donation — payable to Shorehaven — toward the purchase of a new device.
In the days and weeks ahead, our care teams will distribute the tablets to residents who don’t already have their own devices throughout our households. Image the joy that residents will experience playing Candy Crush or Skyping with their loved ones! We’ll share updates on social media, so connect with us on Facebook or Instagram if you haven’t already.
If you have questions or would like to learn more, send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at 262-567-8341.
