“Adaptive computer technologies demonstrate measurable benefits to persons with dementia including increased engagement in daily life activities, decreased agitated behaviors, and improved physical and psychological well-being,” claims Jack York, President and Co-founder of It’s Never 2 Late (iN2L), whose motto is “Dignity Through Technology.” In 1999, Jack invented a computer system geared toward the elderly who are often left out of the technology craze of the last several decades. iN2L computers provide over 3,000 programs of a wide variety to suit the needs of any elderly person, empowering them to still do the things they love and stay connected in the midst of memory impairment or other life-limiting illnesses.
