|Regular interaction for seniors is so important|
This is a very common issue for millions of family caregivers who worry about the physical and mental well being of a loved one. Seniors want to stay engaged with family, they want to feel vital and most of all, they want to feel dignified.
One day while Kelly and her grandma were using it to chat, Kelly noticed her grandma slump to the side as if she was passing out or having a stroke. Kelly kept talking to her grandma to keep her engaged as best she could while observing her. Kelly was able to contact paramedics, direct them to her grandma and walk them through what had occurred even though she was many miles away. The paramedics say the outcome could have been much worse if Kelly had not been in a video chat with her grandma when the incident happened. Since then, Kelly and her family have moved her grandma closer to them but they still visit with her using the device.
