With Big-Buttons and Easy-to-Use, Seniors Get Video Devices At No Charge To Talk to Family For First
Seniors who are social distancing to stay healthy during the pandemic are now gaining much-needed companionship, thanks to ultra-loud, easy-to-use devices that connect them directly to loved ones. The Dreamweaver Foundation has provided 300 free Facebook Portals to seniors in nursing care homes in Nebraska and Iowa—and the grateful reactions have ranged from “tears of joy” to an overwhelming sense of relief. Most seniors who received a Portal were connected to loved ones with a clear picture and sound for the first time in months.
