Staying in Touch with Family

Maintaining contact with the elderly is one of the most effective ways to express your love and concern. Because It is not often possible to meet them and have one-on-one conversations. You must come up with creative ways to stay in touch with the elderly. Video chatting is a perfect way to connect with family and friends.

Here are our top picks for the best video messaging devices and applications:


The ViewClix Smart Frame is simple to use and does not involve complex inputs from seniors. The video chatting capabilities of the 15-inch virtual screen enable you to maintain a continuous visual link with elderly parents or grandparents.

Seniors can watch an HD slideshow of their most recent family photos with the ViewClix Smart Frame. 


Another useful tool is the GrandPad.  It features a clutter-free design and one-touch accessibility to communicate with friends and family online. The simplified menu has big colorful icons and only a few key features.

The GrandPad can deliver voice emails, make daily phone calls, view images and videos, play games, and listen to personalized music in addition to video calls. The simplicity of this unit, on the other hand, is what sets it apart.

Oscar Senior:
