Thank you T2B. Your generous donations helped my family connect with our father when he was in the hospital and visitation was restricted. It was an essential lifeline for us to communicate with him. As an elderly man with hearing issues, phones were not an option in speaking with him. Communicating through the ipad provided a lot of confidence and comfort to him and to us. It also allowed him to communicate with out-of-town family, who may not have been able to speak to him using alternative means. Even after the pandemic is over, these ipads will still be amazing tools to help ease the feeling of loneliness to those in need during their hospital stay. We can't thank you enough for your donation.
The donation of these iPADs has been instrumental in connecting families with their loved ones during these difficult times. Particularly in a border city with the current international travel restrictions, the ability to have virtual face-to-face visiting with loved ones both in their final hours and while hospitalized has provided our patients and their families with some comfort and for that we are grateful. We’ve virtually connected family from the United States and for Europe with their loved ones; truly a gift. Thank you for everything that you do for us here at HDGH their families.
I wanted to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to you and your team at Transition2Betterness for the extremely generous iPad donation to our Emergency Department. Just yesterday one of our ED staff members went above and beyond to facilitate a virtual visit with a critical patient and suggested that the ED should have dedicated iPads to bring together patients and families during times like these. Family-centered care is vital is providing quality patient care and virtual visits our patients and their loved ones peace of mind during a very stressful time. Thank you again! Stay safe.
If you have any questions regarding T2B, your involvement or ways to get involved, we invite you to contact the T2B office at your convenience.
