To keep social distancing, devices will be collected from mailboes and can be mailed.
The COVID-19 crisis is worsening and elderly populations are still in need of medical care. Many providers have switched to TeleHealth services to keep providing care. But, many elderly patients do not have camera-enabled devices or know how to use TeleHealth apps. We are providing the devices along with guides on how to use TeleHealth apps and Facetime, how to order grocery delivery, and how to order pharmacy delivery. These devices will also help them stay safe and stay connected to their families.
I am specifically collecting devices for the West Haven VA as many veterans in our area are unfortunately low-income and could really use them and am now also collecting for a few physicians at Yale.
