For every $1,000 raised, we will donate a computer to a nursing home in our community. Each computer donated will bring back the much-needed community and connection the residents need during this time of isolation.

About

As noted on the MedicalNewsToday Website, ''Loneliness is a known factor that negatively affects a person’s mental health and well-being, and some older adults were already at a higher risk of experiencing it. Deteriorating health or the death of partners and friends may get in the way of maintaining a healthy social circle. However, the pandemic and the quarantine heighten this risk of loneliness.“Loneliness is a complex, subjective emotion, experienced as a feeling of anxiety and dissatisfaction associated with a lack of connectedness or communality with others,” explain Joanne Brooke and Debra Jackson in a paper appearing in the Journal of Clinical Nursing."


X-Bots Robotics is committed to fighting the negative psychological effects of COVID-19 on our elderly community. Our team members have joined forces with the Boys & Girls Club of Whittier to teach our seniors how to navigate the cyber world and bring back the much-needed connection to their community that they lack during this time of isolation.


X-Bots team members and the Boys and Girls Club of Whittier students will volunteer their time to teach local seniors how to safely use the internet, social media, and virtual meeting platforms. Our goal is to donate laptops to each nursing home we service to ensure the seniors continue using the new platforms they learned to communicate with family and friends.
