Project Description

The Green House Project and IN2L are teaming up in 2022!

Watch this recording to hear Green House Project senior director Susan Ryan and IN2L lead researcher Dr. Lydia Nguyen discuss how this new partnership will help elders, caregivers, and families create meaningful engagement and fight social isolation with technology.

As eldercare professionals continue to adjust to the new COVID normal, fostering connections — and avoiding the devastating effects of loneliness — is more important than ever.

While technology can never replace the power of face-to-face interaction, it’s a powerful tool that’s always available no matter the time or external circumstances: IN2L’s communication-enabled tablets were found to decrease feelings of loneliness and improve mood among residents of assisted living and skilled nursing communities in a 2021 study conducted by the Alzheimer’s Association and the University of South Florida.

GHP’s new partnership with IN2L will make it even easier for Green House adopter communities to implement this vital technology, including:

  • Access to deep discounts on IN2L’s technology services
  • Assistance with securing funding, such as Civil Monetary Penalty (CMP) grants, to support the implementation of technology programs
  • Ongoing development of a new Green House app for IN2L’s systems, which will soon provide direct support for Green House team members

The Green House Project believes that elders’ social and emotional wellbeing is just as important as their physical health and safety, and we’re proud to partner with a tech company dedicated to breaking down barriers to tech adoption among older Americans.
