Did you know that as a part of the COVID-19 response the LTCI purchased and distributed iPads to long-term care homes who expressed interest? These iPads aimed to facilitate physician-resident-staff communications during remote visits. These iPads were trialed with the new LTCI Virtual Visit Toolkit for Facilities Pictured below is LTCI Program Coordinator Annebeth Leurs dropping off iPads to the Heights at Mt.

Please get in touch if you’re interested in contributing or to send us your topic suggestions!
