In more recent years modern technology has opened up a brand new world of communication. This has resulted in families who are separated by distance to be able to keep in touch via email, and now the wonderful world of Skype.
Many of our individuals in Rehoboth programs have family members who live far away, or even in other countries. We actively support individuals who desire to retain close families ties. Many want to have opportunities to communicate with their parents and siblings in a meaningful way. The advent of iPads and tablets has enabled individuals to learn a new skill, and be able to communicate face to face electronically across the miles. This experience has added a lot of excitement and a new dimension to their desire to have “face time” and flourish in their family relationships. Connecting across the miles certainly enhances the individual’s emotional well-being and ability to keep connected with their family members.
