Carers: Are You Too Busy?

The Wealth of Choice for Those of Us Who Are Time-Poor

In today’s fast-paced world we often find ourselves with more commitments than time to fit them all into one day. From demanding jobs and long working hours, to personal appointments, and our children with their own activities. Many of us are also responsible for family members who are ageing and, sadly, we often find ourselves with limited time available. While we all appreciate the value and benefits of daily visits, our commitments, and sometimes also geographic distance, may mean that this is not possible.

Face to Face Conversations in a Different Way

Video calling has become popular as it allows us to easily and frequently have face-to-face contact with our loved ones, and allows us to ‘visit’ when we can’t visit. Face-to-face contact can promote emotional wellbeing and allows people who may be ageing or living with a disability or illness to maintain relationships, and gives them conversations to look forward to. The Konnekt Videophone has been specially designed for the elderly and those with a disability or hearing loss. Videophone can be set up to dial with one touch, and for those who are bed-ridden or chair-bound, can even be set up to automatically answer calls.
