In addition to supporting online connections with friends and family who might not live close by, the program offers health benefits in therapy and memory care. With more than 4,600 applications to choose from, exercises in memory care and activities for speech, physical and occupational therapy are just a few clicks away. Interactive games and wellness programs also help to keep our residents laughing and feeling healthy.
At Encore, everyone benefits from iN2L. We’ve seen residents with mobility issues have their spirits instantly lifted from having the world at their fingertips. Hearing-impaired residents can even play community bingo by using the screen as a visual aid. Residents that have limited hand function can once again assemble puzzles and other activities that require fine motor skills. The Cajun Clickers, as they’re sometimes called at Encore, experience an overall improvement in their wellness and health from using iN2L.
The many benefits seniors can experience from the iN2L program include the following:
“The iN2L program gives us something fun and interactive to do during visits with my dad. My son loves to play the games like feeding fish and popping bubbles with his grandfather. It’s a great tool that brings children and elders together.”
