Myrtle Robinson, certified activities director at West Point Community Living Center (WPCLC) saw a need arise when the public computer at the skilled nursing facility stopped functioning. She sent an application on behalf of residents 67-year-old Milford Taylor and 77-year-old Lillian Holloman to Mississippi Health Care Foundation (MHCF) requesting personal laptops for the two residents. The MHCF helps to enhance the quality of life for nursing home residents.
MHCF has been granting requests once a year from WPCLC for five years, providing hearing aids, dentures, wheelchair batteries and a guitar and amplifier, according to Robinson. Taylor and Holloman were impacted the most by the loss of the public computer, as they were using it every day, Robinson said. That was why she put in the request for the two laptops that arrived Tuesday, she said.
