Given our current circumstances, we aren’t able to visit our family members. However, we do have the ability to see and speak to family members utilizing technology. With smart phones, tablets, computers, amongst so many other things, we are happy to give resources as to what is available for whatever technology you might use to allow you to video chat with your loved ones. While it doesn’t replace visiting in person, at least you are able to see a loved one’s smiling face.

Please note that at this point in time we are not loaning many items out from our AT Program (done case by case), but if you have questions about the different programs available to utilize video chat we will happily assist you in finding what works for you.
