Shirley’s Technological AdventureMarch 11, 2020
At Blue Harbor Senior Living, we love to create unique WOW! Moments for all our incredible residents. We want to make each resident feel loved and appreciated—and help make their dreams come true!
Our loving community in Eugene, OR, Sheldon Park Senior Living, recently organized the sweetest WOW! Moment for our sweet resident Shirley. In this edition of the True Blue blog, read on to get all the heartwarming details.
Life Made Easy
Shirley was experiencing issues with her eyesight, so wanted to try voice activation to make her life just a little more relaxing. We were so happy to oblige!
We decided to get her an Amazon Fire Stick for her TV, along with an Alexa-compatible lightbulb. Shirley absolutely adored these gifts!
She is able to speak to her remote and say, “Alexa, turn on Netflix! Alexa, play calming music. Alexa, turn on my lamp!” This makes her life much easier; plus, it’s a lot of fun.
Fun with New Gift
On the day Shirley received this gift, the team and Shirley had the afternoon to themselves. They shared laughs as they stumbled and fumbled behind her TV setting up the new device!
Once it was all set up, though, Shirley got to explore the endless options she now had available! Alexa would do so much for her. At everything Shirley discovered Alexa could do, Shirley would follow up with a, “Can you believe it?!” It was so cute. What an exciting gift!
WOW! Moments at Blue Harbor
We’re so happy we could make Shirley’s life just a little easier while learning some new and entertaining skills! Technology actually has a lot of benefits for the senior population, as we’ve talked about on our technology and seniors blog; check it out!
