Incredible… it is all I can think of saying…
by Susan Anderson, HPCCR Social Worker
Editor’s Note: A couple of years ago, a social worker at HPCCR found that she could get many of her formerly unresponsive dementia patients to engage with her if she brought her iPad to their visits. And just like that, an entire organizational program was created around using iPads with dementia patients. Realizing both the success and the potential of the program, what quickly followed was an effort to raise money to purchase iPads for all HPCCR social workers. While many of them are fortunate to have one, there are still others — like Susan Anderson — who share one with another social worker. Our fundraising efforts continue; if you are interested in learning more about supporting this worthwhile program, visit the dementia care page on our website, or contact our Development Department at 704.375.0100. Meanwhile, let Susan’s stories below awe and inspire you!
