Middin launches iPad library for clients.
People with disabilities become familiar with digital tools.
Middin starts with an iPad library lending 100 iPads to clients. Middin clients are getting the opportunity to discover what tablets may do for them. On Wednesday, September 23 a festive kick-off of the project took place. The first iPad was handed over by Karsten Klein, Alderman Care City Council The Hague, to Ineke van den Zwan. She could immediately made a facetime call to her brother. There also was a special musical performance by Daniel Bakelaar, a Middin client, who made music by using the iPad.
Clients may try out an iPad during a half year. After that period other clients get the opportunity to use the iPad.
Clients are getting support from Middin staff and a Facebook group has been set up where customers and employees can exchange experiences and tips. Middin and the healthcare sector develop rapidly various technologies to increase the opportunities to function independently. They contribute to supporting the clients at home, at school and at work.
The iPad Library was made possible by fundings of the Hague Fund and Accezz International.
Middin provides care and support to over 4,000 people with disabilities in Southern Holland. It comes to children, adolescents, adults and elderly people. Midden offers comprehensive services and customized support.
