STRONGSVILLE, Ohio — These times of quarantine can be particularly lonelier for those in residential care facilities, which is why Kemper House, a residential care facility that specializes in cares for individuals with Alzheimer's disease and dementia, wanted to make sure no resident goes without contact with a family member or friend.

The Kemper House management team and IT team immediately turned to iPads as a way to help families stay connected with visitors until state restrictions are lifted.

At both its Highland Heights and Strongsville locations, residents have access to the technology.

The staff at the facilities have been trained to use the iPads so their residents have the ability to have a video visit with their family members and loved ones as often as the family wants.
