Donate Used Devices to Seniors for Telehealth Appointments

Telehealth For Seniors is collecting donations of old tablets, phones, computers, and chargers for seniors in need to use for telehealth appointments during the COVID-19 crisis. Many physician practices are switching to a telehealth model, which allows for patients to make appointments with their doctors via video chat without putting both their health and the doctor's health at risk. Unfortunately, many seniors—whose health is most at risk—do not have smartphones with cameras or access to the internet. They will be unable to make virtual appointments, and either will have to forego care or risk their health to visit a provider. By providing seniors (who are often on subsidized health insurance) with video-enabled devices, they will be able to take advantage of free wifi hotspots with Spectrum, or use the wifi outside of doctors' offices or their neighbors' homes to conduct their doctors' appointments. Telehealth For Seniors will provide seniors with guidance on how to set up an email and account for telehealth. To do this, Telehealth For Seniors needs help providing seniors with electronic devices. Volunteers who have old iPads, iPhones, Samsung Tablets, or other camera-enabled electronics are encouraged to consider donating them. Chargers are also helpful. To volunteer: Express interest below to record this opportunity in your Volunteer New York! profile MANDATORY: Wipe and restore your old device to factory settings so all of your information will be deleted and safe for others to use. Charge the battery fully MANDATORY: Sanitize your device with a Lysol wipe to prevent germ transmission MANDATORY: Fill out this form to complete your donation: https://forms.gle/B9ufNAUBdKtRqUnVA Note: Volunteer New York! has posted this opportunity on behalf of Telehealth For Seniors.
