Software Helps Seniors Stay Active & Connected
As part of MorningStar Senior Living of Sparks resident-directed care, we are pleased to be able to offer our residents the user-friendly, interactive software called “It’s Never Too Late” ® (iN2L). This unique, person-centered technology makes it easy for anyone to use a computer, regardless of prior experience or abilities, and is designed specifically for the continuing entertainment and education of seniors.
Simply to use, iN2L provides customized activities that are based on a person’s interest and background, which are used to enhance cognitive function, socialization and quality of life. Also a Wii-like functionality offers interactive physical as well as cognitive activities. The personalized program allows each resident to have his or hers own “page” on the system, and is setup to display their photos, videos, stories, music, games and even websites. The resident’s page can even be customized remotely through a family portal to give family members an opportunity to add personal updates, information and current pictures.
With over 3,000 application and content items, the highly adaptable nature of the system makes it easy to adjust activities and content to a resident’s unique abilities and interests.
Along with an array of brain exercises, educational and travel videos, interactive games, puzzles, word games, history, news topics and trivia, the iN2L software also offers safe and easy Internet access, email, and Skype.
At MorningStar of Sparks, we offer 80 assisted living suites as well as 128 independent living suites designed for seniors without the need of any care services. In addition our Reflections Neighborhood has 32 secure suites devoted to the specialized care of residents with memory impairment.
