Woman at IN2L

 

Each Kiosk consists of an in2l machine, a laptop with programs and valuable links to the community, a wide assortment of reference material, two trained Advisors, and frequently an Options Counselor, an Employment Counselor, and a Travel Counselor.

All Kiosks are visited by a Million Hearts Nurse and a Falls Prevention Specialist each month. Visitors to the Kiosk can have their blood pressures taken and tracked over time, or they can work on Mobility and Balance issues. Travel Training is also offered at the Kiosk for Living Well. 

The first Kiosk opened in October 2012 at the Beverly Council on Aging. In addition we currently operate in the following cities and towns:

  • Danvers
  • Gloucester
  • Peabody
  • Lynn

We are set up at Councils on Aging and also at Housing Sites (McPherson Park in Gloucester and Wall Plaza in Lynn).

Some of the activities visitors to The Kiosk enjoy include the following:

  • Interactive Exhibits
  • Music
  • The Passport to Health
  • Memory games
  • Visual chats with friends
  • Virtual bicycling
  • Virtual travel
  • Personal Portals for confidentially keeping track of information about your health, medications, social connections, or whatever you’d like!
  • Health and wellness programs
  • Workshops

The Kiosks for Living Well are made possible by grants from the National Center on Senior Transportation, the New Freedom Initiative of the Federal Transit Administration, and the North Shore Community Health Network.
