Attorney General Maura Healey and Massachusetts Senior Care have partnered to supply 730 tablets to nursing home residents across the state to facilitate face-to-face communication with their loved ones during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The AG’s Office and Mass. Senior Care secured donations of tablets from companies including Amazon, Walmart, Teel Technologies, and Acer, as well as a financial contribution from Personable, Inc.
“We know it’s been difficult for families who can’t have in-person contact with each other during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said AG Healey. “Interaction with loved ones is incredibly important during this time, so I am grateful we’ve been able to work with Mass. Senior Care and these companies to get hundreds of tablets to nursing home residents so they can stay in touch with family and friends.”
Tara Gregorio, Mass Senior Care President, expressed her thanks to the Attorney General, noting, “We are extremely grateful to Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey for securing 730 donated tablets that will be distributed to our long-term care facilities for the sole purpose of connecting residents to their families who are temporarily restricted from personally visiting their loved ones during this pandemic.”
