Everyone likes a good deal and a good deal that helps seniors: well, the Haliburton Lions could not resist. So, the Lions jumped at the chance to partner with the Angus Glen Lions Club to acquire new tablets to give to seniors in Long Term Care Homes. Angus Glen’s project was supported by a Horizons for Seniors Program Grant that allowed them to match 1 for 1 the tablets purchased by another Lions Club. The Haliburton Lions purchase five Fire 7 tablets and Agnus Glen Lions Club matched our purchase and donated 5 tablets.
The tablets enable residents to chat with loved ones and they provide families assurance and comfort that their loved ones are safe and sound. And, of course, seniors can use the tablets to play music, access information and even play games!
Lion Gerald Hadley presented 6 new tablets to the Haliburton Highlands Health Services for Highland Woods LTC facility in Haliburton and Hyland Crest LTC facility in Minden and Lion Betty Mills presented 4 new tablets at Haliburton Extendicare LTC facility.
