Perry Lutheran Homes Launches TechConnect Program!

Here at Perry Lutheran Homes, when we say we want to help keep you connected, we mean it!

Perry Lutheran Homes is on a mission to help every single resident connect through technology with the launch of our TechConnect Program!

Starting October 20, 2020, every resident that moves into Perry Lutheran Homes – Willis Avenue Campus or Spring Valley Retirement Community Campus, will have a dedicated tablet setup and ready for you to use for video chatting with family and friends, browsing through Facebook to see the latest photos of grandchildren, and/or emailing back and forth with friends and family!

TechConnect Program Phases:

  1. Phase 1 is complete having nine tablets available for all residents to "check-out" and use as needed for video calls with family and friends.
  2. Phase 2 is in progress which is seeking funding for tablets for all current Perry Lutheran Homes residents who are able to have a dedicated tablet to use.
  3. Phase 3 is also in progress which is seeking funding for tablets for new Perry Lutheran Homes residents who are able to have a dedicated tablet to use.

TechConnect Program Details:

  • The brand of tablet will be determined by Perry Lutheran Homes.
  • For the resident to have their own dedicated tablet, the resident must be able to physically and cognitively use the tablet independently.
  • For residents unable to physically or cognitively use their own tablet, one will be made available to use when family or friends would like to video chat.
  • Should the resident move out of the care community or pass away, the tablet will be reassigned to another resident.
