Free iPads for Seniors

Through the CARES Act funding and donations from Brooklyn Center businesses, the City has purchased 40 iPads to distribute to senior residents of Brooklyn Center with the purpose of enhancing connectivity and reducing the sense of isolation. Loneliness and social isolation have been associated with increased risk for several chronic conditions for the elderly. Social isolation has also been linked to increases in emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and nursing home placements.

The City is currently accepting applications for iPads.  
Application requirements:
  - Must be a resident of Brooklyn Center
  - Must be 62 years of age or older
  - Must submit proof of age and residency

Applications can be returned by mail or placed in the utility bill drop box: City of Brooklyn Center, 6301 Shingle Creek Parkway, Brooklyn Center, MN 55430; or submitted by email at: recreation@ci.brooklyn-center.mn.us.  Include a copy of your photo ID with the completed application. If you have any questions or would like a paper copy of the application, please call 763-569-3330.  

If you know a senior that could benefit from an iPad, please pass the word on.
