St. Andrew's receives donation
St. Andrew’s Village recently announced the addition of a new technology system called “It’s Never Too Late” (iN2L).
The iN2L computer is a large touch screen for individual/small group use, that can also be hooked up to big screen TVs or projector screens to provide easier viewing for a larger audience.
The iN2L was made possible by donations from S&T Bank, St. Andrew’s Friends of the Village and the Employee Giving Program at St. Andrew’s.
This new system provides dignity through technology. The various applications provide the capability of viewing movies, classic TV shows, therapeutic music and more.
Currently the residents of The Village House Personal Care at St. Andrew’s Village are experimenting and using the new iN2L system. They are enjoying the ability to connect with their families through Skype and Facebook, browsing the Internet and various activities and games, such as the popular “The Price Is Right.”
The system comes at no cost to the residents and they can use it on their own or within a larger group.
The iN2L doesn’t replace a staff person but it allows the staff to interact on a broader level with the residents by using the system for a variety of activities. Coincidentally, this new technology meshes with the Masterpiece Living initiative that is embraced throughout the Presbyterian Senior Living campuses.
The four “SIPS” of the Masterpiece Living focus on social, intellectual, physical and spiritual cores, which are supported and enhanced through this iN2L program.
St. Andrew’s Village, Indiana County’s only continuing care retirement community, is a service of the not-for-profit Presbyterian Senior Living communities network that provides independent living, personal care, inpatient rehabilitation services, long-term skilled nursing care, and specialized Alzheimer’s and dementia care.
