Video telephony for seniors

Video telephony connects generations

Maria is 93 and lives with her 24/7 caregiver Anna in her large apartment in Vienna. Except for her grandson Gerhard, who visits her on weekends, the rest of the family lives in good health in sunny Carinthia. Due to the relatively long journey, the entire family only gets together now and then. The corona pandemic further complicates this circumstance. Although Maria enjoys the company of her nurse Anna, she often wishes for nothing more than to see her son Peter. The great longing often leads to depressive phases and overemotionality in Maria.

Video Calls for ALL!

Peter’s cousin Elfriede had the solution: Elfriede has long owned the JAMES Tablet, a tablet for seniors, especially for video telephony. Elfriede uses the tabletmainly to keep up with her doctor’s visits online, since the doctor’s office she trusts is relatively far away. However, the tablet is also perfect for maintaining private contacts. After Peter tried out the tableton his cousin, he equipped both himself and his mother Maria with the tablet.

Best of all, Maria doesn’t need to be shy about operating the tablet, as she simply has to pick it up and hang up during her son’s video calls – just like making a familiar phone call. Maria also dares more and more and already video phones independently with her dear friend Irmgard, who lives in a nursing home. Irmgard’s nursing institution even has several JAMES Tablets. When Maria calls, the JAMES Tablet Irmgard á la hotel service is brought directly to the room. From now on, she can experience the voices and faces of her loved ones live at any time.

But Anna, Maria’s caregiver, is also enthusiastic about the advantages of the tablet; since the JAMES Tablet is up and running in Maria’s apartment, Anna can perform her everyday care tasks and activities using the integrated MOCCA ONE software effortlessly record and then manage. MOCCA ONEis the market-leading platform in mobile / ambulatory care software and for Anna, as a 24/7 caregiver, an absolute asset to her work routine.
