Arcadia bringing our kupuna into the digital age

Sponsored by Arcadia Family of Companies

Arcadia believes technology plays a key role in keeping our kupuna engaged and happy. All residents in the senior living community receive an iPad when they move in and the facility conducts iPad workshops and training, covering everything from creating an email account, an Apple ID to Facetime and various apps that would be useful to each resident. Chief Information Officer with the Arcadia Family of Companies, Michael Chong, and Programs Manager with 15 Craigside, Leilyn Yamamoto, share their experience with HI Now viewers about how technology is empowering seniors to take part in activities on their own, fostering participation without forcing it.
