“We have nearly two decades of experience delivering content that promotes meaningful engagement among seniors, their families and caregivers. iN2L Focus takes it all to an entirely new level,” said iN2L CEO Tom Bang. “We’ve re-imagined the curation and delivery of purposeful, person-centered content that recognizes and responds to the unique needs, abilities and preferences of residents in assisted living communities—individually, in group settings and one-on-one with caregivers and loved ones.”
The tablet’s configurable engagement content and communication features are launched with applications designed with senior user experience in mind, and support:
- Social connection
- Intellectual curiosity
- Spiritual and emotional support
- Personal interests
The tablet’s mobility, intuitiveness and versatility also provides caregivers with opportunities to discover creative and personalized ways to connect and engage with residents where they are cognitively and physically.
iN2L Focus empowers residents with autonomy over choices in the content they enjoy, the activities in which they participate, and when and how they engage with others. Programing is selected per each resident’s interests and needs from iN2L’s continually updated content. In addition, iN2L Focus features video chat, photo sharing, text and e-mail, giving residents the ability to enjoy content and engagement on their own terms.
The interface’s large, high-resolution icons allows residents easy navigation to access favorited programming, content searches and communication features. The tablet’s integrated controls for volume, zoom and brightness are accessible with the touch of a button.
iN2L’s unparalleled resident engagement technology—and now iN2L Focus—are increasingly viewed as viable ways to enhance staff efficiency and job satisfaction, reduce the utilization of anti-depressant medication, and mitigate the feelings associated with isolation, loneliness and boredom. All are effective ways in which long-term care providers may differentiate themselves in their competitive markets.
“We found that caregivers from any department could pick up iN2L Focus and use it easily to engage a resident one-on-one,” said Cameo Rogers, life enrichment coordinator for Vetter Health Services. “It has been a positive relationship building tool.”
Focus will be demonstrated at the Leading Age Annual Meeting & Expo, Oct. 29-Nov. 1, in New Orleans.
