We value the importance of relationships and remaining connected with loved ones. During our temporary visitor restrictions, we are pleased to offer a new option for our Bethesda community to remain connected to friends and family through Bethesda E-Connect.
Bethesda has iPads ready for residents and tenants to borrow when they want to connect with others using FaceTime, Zoom, Skype or other platform. We encourage family and friends to connect with their loved one at Bethesda through this type of virtual visit.
Family and friends can schedule an E-Connect call with their loved one at Bethesda by completing the form below. Then, prior to the designated E-Connect time that’s been scheduled, a Bethesda team member will bring an iPad (if needed) to the resident or tenant, help them get it set up and ready to use. Team members can help Bethesda residents and tenants with the iPads as much as needed.
To sign-up for an E-Connect visit with a loved one at Bethesda, please complete the form below:
For questions regarding our E-Connect program, please contact Recreation Director Rebecca Peterson at 320-214-5638 or email her at [email protected]
This new technology-based program has been a ray of hope for sustaining connections between our residents/tenants and their loved ones. Each day, E-Connect witnesses daily coffee-chats, family updates, and milestone celebrations that would have otherwise been by phone or mail.
If you would like to help us further the mission of visual connections by supporting our need for more iPads, consider making a donation today to Bethesda Foundation. Your donation will help ensure all of our neighborhoods/locations have dedicated access to E-Connect.
