A Bit of Cruising and Crooning
Our Residents at English Rose Suites had the opportunity to take part in “Cruising and Crooning” with Jack York of It’s Never 2 Late. A mild spin-off of late night talk show host James Cordens’ “Carpool Karaoke.”
York, President/Co-Founder of iN2L traveled across the country in celebration of the 20th year of It’s Never 2 Late by stopping at senior living environments and celebrating. The tour kicked off in August at the Pioneer Network’s “Pioneering a New Culture of Aging Conference” in Louisville, KY. Each stop was unique and celebrated residents in many different ways. They made their stop at English Rose Suites in September, just in time before our cold Minnesota winter began. Watch all of the fun they had below.
York took a couple groups of residents for a drive around beautiful Edina. They talked about where they are from, their dream trip to Paris, World War II, and sang songs.
What is iN2L?
It’s Never 2 Late is a wonderful, highly interactive computer system that has been researched and specifically designed for use for persons living with memory impairment and physical limitations.
“iN2L’s goal is to reach people wherever they are, especially individuals living with dementia. We love to show families how their loved ones still have the ability to stay engaged with music, with spirituality, with content meaningful for them. It has nothing to do with dementia, or even with aging, we all are thirsty to stay connected and relevant, the breadth of iN2L experiences allows that to happen.”
-JACK YORK, President / Co-Founder of iN2L
With iN2L residents have the opportunity to explore the world traveling to places they’ve never been or revisit favorite vacations they have already experienced. They can use iN2L to express their spirituality through music, prayers and sermons. iN2L helps staff access many different religions so the care staff can support everyone. Residents, staff and families can use it as a tool to interact through trivia, music, games, exercise and so much more. The possibilities for meaningful engagement are endless.
Thank you to Jack York and iN2L for giving our residents this fun experience!
