A growing body of research shows that the need to connect socially with others is as basic as our need for food, water and shelter, writes UCLA professor Matthew Lieberman in his first book, “Social: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect,” published this week by Crown Publishers.Our seniors are especially vulnerable at this time as they may be isolated in their homes or apartments with little connection to the outside world.
Understanding the basic need for meaningful connection for our residents, Paddock Ridge has implemented a robust, interactive technology connection platform. Our community uses a technology system called iN2L to help provide experiences for our residents to share conversations, interactions, learning and fun with each other, their caregivers, and family members.
iN2L is easy to use and requires no computer experience. Simply touch a picture on the screen to begin enjoying fun activities.
Stay connected with family and friends with simple email and video chat options.
Easily access your favorite activities, personal photos and videos to enjoy and share with others.
Want to play games or learn about other places? The iN2L library includes history, travel, movies, classic television, and music.
Activities like trivia, quizzes, games, and puzzles in iN2L are designed to be both entertaining and exercise the mind. iN2L also includes noted brain fitness programs such as Happy Neuron.
Therapy and Fitness
Stay active by taking advantage of videos and activities ideal for fun, exercise, and therapy.
Sermons, hymns, and inspirational videos are a few of the options iN2L offers to nurture spirituality.
