Attention Seniors, Families, and Senior Care Providers
Shelter-in-Place is now mandatory for seniors to protect them against the COVID-19. Feelings of loneliness and isolation will increase due to social isolation.
How would it be if in spite of this social isolation situation, seniors could:
- Reduce social isolation by communicating with friends and family using video, all easily controlled by voice commands
- Reduce contact with retirement living personal by video call when their physical attendance is not necessary
- Reduce the risk of exposure to the virus when going to get food, medications, or equipment by easier remote communication to the providers
SERVICE IS PROVIDED ENTIRELY WITHOUT CONTACT WITH SENIORS
My name is Haim Argaman. I am a computer engineer, and a Smart Living Solutions expert.
My parents are in their 90s facing mobility challenges due to their age. Often, they feel very lonely. They’ve always been very reluctant to use technology and don’t even have smartphones.
Without access to modern technology, my parents were very limited in their communication with the family. After I installed the Alexa smart system in their home, their quality of life was greatly enhanced, and I realized that this system could help other seniors.
How Alexa Can Help You Overcome the COVID-19 Isolation
Alexa simplifies voice and video calling, helping to stay connected to family, friends, service providers like doctors or pharmacists, by allowing for simple voice commands to initiate and control the communication.
These features can increase social connection and help getting services in conditions of Shelter-in-Place as required these days where the COVID-19 virus is spreading around.
A study published in Kiplinger’s Retirement Report tested the impact of Alexa on the lives of retirees.
All participants reported that Alexa made their lives easier. More than 70% noted that the device helped them stay connected to friends, family, and the community. About 75% said they used their smart-home devices daily.
Lois Seed’s vision impairment makes it difficult for her to read books and to look for information on the Internet. So when her retirement community in Carlsbad, Calif., offered to place an Amazon Echo with Alexa voice technology in her one-bedroom apartment, she decided to give the home speaker a try.
Now Seed is hooked – and she’s one of a growing number of older people who are turning to digital voice assistants to make life easier.
When it comes to voice assistants, Seed’s advice to seniors is to learn about the numerous functions that voice technology offers. “It can make your life more interesting.”
