WHAT WE DO
The idea for Lifeline Tablets resulted from seeing the heartbreaking stories about how families are not able to say goodbye to their isolated relatives, dying of COVID-19 in the hospitals, and how healthcare workers have been holding up their own phones so that families can say goodbye one last time.
Lifeline Tablets puts mobile tablets into the hands of those who need them the most. And we’re starting with COVID-19 patients. For $100, we supply kits that include a pre-configured mobile tablet, a hands-free gooseneck stand, and headphones with microphone. As a registered US nonprofit, donations to Lifeline Tablets are tax deductible.
Note for Hospitals
We are looking for local partners in Minnesota who care for COVID-19 patients and those in congregate living facilities, under threat from the pandemic, who need mobile tablets.
We have created the kits with the hospital environment in mind, with a focus on ease of use, sterilization requirements, and to allow incapacitated patients to be able to communicate hands-free.
Please contact us to request tablets.
