SPRYE announces an exciting initiative for new and existing members who wish to stay connected to their friends, family and doctors.
TotalAccess Now: Leave No One Unconnected is a pilot program that offers personal training and support from SPRYE staff to assist members who wish to improve their knowledge and usage of their smart devices in an effort to access the world around them using technology.
In collaboration with other local not for profit organizations SPRYE will provide a new tablet at no cost for qualifying members who wish to participate but do not own a smart device.
“What COVID-19 taught us last year was how essential it is to be connected,” said Executive Director Marie Johnson. “Older adults that didn’t own a device were unable to see friends and family members and some couldn’t see their physicians” explained Johnson.
The program’s goal is to ensure older adults have a device and learn how to navigate sites to help them stay engaged and connected.
The pilot will run until December 31, 2021 and according to Johnson, will resume in the new year depending upon future funding.
SPRYE’s mission is to help older adults age in place in the homes and communities they love. The not-for-profit serves Harrison, Port Chester, Rye and Rye Brook. As SPRYE enters its 10th Anniversary, the Board of Directors is committed and focused on leaving no one unconnected in the ever-changing world.
