ElderHealth NW Access Project
ElderHealth Northwest will use the Technology Matching Funds to provide caregivers of elderly and disabled family members access to the Internet to locate resources, services and other supports. The three computers purchased for this project will also be used for cognitive retraining, recreation activity, and personal development of the adult day health residents that ElderHealth Northwest serves.
