The CLC has provided refurbished computers to hospital residents who seem able to benefit from owning a personal computer. The CLC has set up a way for residents to earn a PC of their own by helping each other learn the computer from each other. Being a long term hospital resident, myself, I am aware of how owning and learning to operate a computer can be a real game changer to those who partake in this. Many of the residents seem to respond to more than just the television set provided.
The computer is a window to the world. As Bill Gates was quoted, ‘’the computer increases communication and creativity.’’ This can work in spades to those participating hospital residents. I have witnessed one resident see pictures of her grandson for the first time on Facebook. Her comment was, ‘’look, he has my nose!’’
