iPad Program
 
Staying connected during Covid-19 is one of the goals of the Hospice iPad program. The 24 Hospice iPads have been loaned to people for art therapy, reading, listening to music, connecting with family and friends on Facebook or Zoom, or joining in an exercise class.
 
Volunteer Margo McPhail said placing the iPads with isolated, or grieving people, has been a lifeline during the time of Covid-19.
 
“It opens up a whole world to them,” said McPhail. “I think it’s extra important. In times like this it is so important for their mental and physical health.”
 
McPhail and volunteers set up the computers and offer technical support to help get seniors and others become comfortable using the iPad.
