LIFE programme clients accept the tablets from Lions Club representatives, while staff and administrative personnel of the programme look on.
SABA–The Saba Lions Club on February 5 donated six tablets to the Love and Independence For Elders (LIFE) programme and the Henry Carlyle Every Home for the Aged.
The donation is the result of the combined efforts of corporate citizens, the Saba Lions Clubs and the Client Council of the Henry Carlyle Every Home for the Aged.
The tablets will be used by clients of the LIFE programme and the Henry Carlyle Every Home for the Aged to “communicate with the outside world,” particularly family and friends, and also as a means to keep them occupied during the day.
Chairperson of the Client Council Franklin Wilson and representative of the Saba Lions Club Carl Buncamper said the mission of their respective organisations is to enhance the quality of life of the elderly.
Nursing staff and volunteers will teach the elderly clients how to use the tablets. LIFE programme representative Dahlia Lavia and clients of the Henry Carlyle Every Home for the Aged thanked those involved for taking such a great initiative.
Recipients of the donation were said to be “extremely happy” and showed their appreciation for the tablets.
