It's Never 2 Late (IN2L) Computer System
AT MULBERRY GARDENS OF SOUTHINGTON ‘IT’S NEVER TOO LATE’ FOR SENIORS TO GO HIGH TECH
High tech combines with high touch at Mulberry Gardens of Southington with the introduction of a new computer system designed specifically for seniors with the belief that it’s never too late to join the digital revolution.
From using e-mail to connecting with family and friends, to enjoying mind-stimulating activities, to improving hand-eye coordination as part of a rehabilitation program, elders with a wide range of physical and cognitive abilities, most of whom have never used a computer, are now enjoying technology using systems adapted especially for them.
The technology was developed by Colorado-based It’s Never 2 Late (IN2L), a company founded in 1999 that specializes in connecting older adults and their caregivers to the benefits of computers and the internet. IN2L's picture-based, touch screen platform enables almost anyone to use a personal computer, even those with dementia.
“Integrating this technology is just one more way we are working to enrich the lives of those we care for here at Mulberry Gardens, says Perry Phillips, Mulberry Gardens’ Executive Director.
