The Haliburton Lions Club partnered with the Angus Glen Lions Club to acquire tablets to give to seniors in long-term care homes. Angus Glen’s project was supported by a Horizons for Seniors Program Grant. It allowed them to match one-for-one the tablets purchased by another Lions Club. The Haliburton Lions bought five tablets and Agnus Glen Lions Club matched that with five of its own.
They were recently given to Highland Wood, Hyland Crest and Extendicare Haliburton. The tablets enable residents to chat with loved ones and provide families assurance and comfort that they’re safe and sound. Seniors can also use the tablets to play music, access information and play games.
