Memory Care Searches for Tablet Donations to Help Residents Stay Connected

Dear Readers: The information below contains a note about a memory care facility that is looking for tablets for their residents to help them stay in touch with loved ones. Since this facility needs them, I imagine that others do as well, so if you have a tablet that you aren't using, try calling an assisted living, memory care, or nursing home in your location and ask if they need tablets for their residents. Thanks! Carol

WHAT: In an effort to assist residents, staff and leaders at Caledonia Senior Living & Memory Care are requesting donations of used iPads to provide families and friends the opportunity to video chat. To be used exclusively for digitally connecting residents to their loved ones during these difficult times of required separation, donated iPads and tablets may be dropped off at Caledonia Senior Living & Memory Care’s offices, where they will be sanitized thoroughly before use.

“With in-person visitation on hold for the safety of our residents and staff, video chatting and calls are currently the only way for our residents to connect directly with their families during extremely uncertain times,” said Gus Noble, President of Caledonia Senior Living in North Riverside.

WHERE: Caledonia Senior Living & Memory Care

    800 Des Plaines Ave., North Riverside, IL 60546

WHO: Gus Noble, President of the Chicago Scots, is available for interviews
