CHAMBERSBURG – Franklin County Commissioners approved hardware and software for a touchscreen system in senior centers through December 2021.

The Co-Pilot Touchscreen system is available at three senior center locations. The system went “live” for use to seniors on May 1st at Chambersburg, Greencastle, and Waynesboro senior activity centers.

“The Co-Pilot system empowers our seniors and increases efficiency for our staff,” said Commission Chairman Dave Keller.

From July 13-20, 2019, Chambersburg, PA will be bustling with activity for the 33rd Annual ChambersFest community celebration.

Co-Pilot is a user-friendly, touchscreen system that empowers visitors to check-in, register for daily activities, and place an individualized meal order.

Several seniors are trained to use the system and are now training their peers.

The Co-Pilot Touchscreen system was originally purchased with funds from the Senior Activity Center Grant awarded to Franklin County from the Pennsylvania Department of Aging.

Although the Co-Pilot program is new, the senior centers are already seeing many positive outcomes. Center Managers spend less time entering data each week and are now more available to work on activity planning. Previously, Center Managers would spend an average of five to six hours a week entering data that the Co-Pilot system now collects for them. Visitors are also receiving more accurate meal orders.

“The Co-Pilot program has been well received by seniors at the centers. They are happy with the electronic check-in, have embraced the training, and are supporting each other in using the system,” said Franklin County Area Agency on Aging Director Traci Kline.
