ROCKLEIGH, N.J. — The Jewish Home Family in Rockleigh has introduced iN2L (It's Never 2 Late) computer units in its facilities and programs.
The units were donated by the Josephine Sanders Designated Fund of the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey in Paramus and feature innovative touchscreen technology designed especially for older adults.
“With the iN2L, we can facilitate activities that are cognitively stimulating, physically engaging, entertaining and much more,” Jewish Home Family President and CEO Carol Silver Elliott said.
“From live web cams in places like the San Diego Zoo to flight simulator programs, from trivia and history to wellness activities, we have really put these to good use in the first weeks that we've had them.”
The iN2L units are completely mobile and can be brought to residents’ rooms, as well as used for large groups.
The unit is on a specialized cart that can be adjusted to any height and even angle so someone who is bed-bound can still participate.
The units have more than 3,000 apps and content items including old movies, music, games, puzzles, trivia, spiritual programs, wellness exercises and more.
The company pushes regular updates to the units, further expanding and diversifying their library.
“Our Endowment Foundation, the endowment and planned giving division of Federation provides special opportunities for funding innovative, creative, and visionary projects. I believe the iN2L computer units meet all three criteria.” CEO of Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey, Jason Shames said.
“I’m thrilled that that an endowment created 30 years ago by the late Josephine Sanders is having such a positive impact today.”
