Phone for COVID Lockdown

How to mitigate

COVID Lockdown

Will you commit to protecting your loved ones, clients or residents?

The Konnekt Videophone is a vital component to block COVID-19 and avoid mental health collapse

  • Replace risky family visits with 100% safe video calling
  • Prevent virus transmission from cordless and mobile phones, iPads and portable tablets
  • Reduce social isolation and halve* depression risk via increased face-to-face social engagement [*Teo 2019]

Face masks are scary: They hide facial expressions, make friends and carers unrecognizable, and prevent lip-reading.

What are your loved ones, clients or residents worth?

Coronavirus Death Rate by Age

In Italy, the fatality rate from Coronavirus was 7%

You, personally, are likely to survive. Those over 80 are extremely vulnerable.

Patients over 80 have a 15% chance of dying.

Will you be a leader? Or will you, your family, or your organization, roll the dice and hope?

Are you adhering to Health Authority Guidance?

Don’t be accused of negligence. For infection control:

CDC already recommends the use of alternative mechanisms for patient and visitor interactions such as video-call applications.

  • Many Homes were ahead of the March 10 advice and have already implemented visitor restrictions.
  • Caring families have taken action and installed a videophone to help prevent disease spread and mental health decline.
Visual Signs of Health

Visual signs of wellness

  • Carers, family: Check for signs of stress and illness
  • Nurses understand the visual indicators of health and hygiene
  • Lack of attention to grooming and personal care are warning signs for declining mental health

How will you keep an eye on your loved one, if you cannot visit weekly?

Konnekt have been amazing supporting and helping us through the process of getting the Captioning Phone for my 94 year old mother.Now she has the phone she can talk to whom ever she wishes via video phone Captioning appearing on the phone.Sound quality is absolutely perfect for her. She has a rather severe hearing impairment.I cannot believe how quickly she has embraced and uses her new system.She is calling people several times a day.Gives her great confidence when speaking to people as now she can read what they are saying.And amazing development by Australian small business.Recommend the Captioning Phone.

OMG this system is brilliant. So easy for my 86yr Mother to use.So easy for me to get my message across because she is severely hearing impaired. The captions help mum to understand us. when im out walking i can call mum and show her what i see. So i get to share with her immediately the moment. When the dreaded Covid struck, it was so easy for the nursing staff at my dads nursing home contact us, and put the trolley in front of dad and we could chat. so much better that waiting for the IPad to be come available. Easy for nursing staff to see who was on dads list and ask who he wanted to chat to. With the Automatic answer , it was wonderful to catch mum snoozing in her recliner and check she was ok. I think every Nursing home should have one for every resident. thank you Konnekt. with much thanks, xo deb Murray and Family

I would like to say that the Konnekt device was wonderful for my Mum, the Staff at the Aged Care Home, and the family. Mum had Dementia but Nursing staff could easily call a family member to help settle Mum as required. It enabled us to comunicate and this extended to the end when Mum was unable to answer the Konnekt but family could call in to see if Mum was sleeping or wandering around. If she was wandering, I could go up and spend time with her while she was awake which I now cherish. She had many falls so this extra time with her when she was wandering also meant that she had extra one-to-one attention which could have avoided a tragedy such as a broken hip from a fall. Now, in hindsight after Mum has passed, I can't help but feel the Konnekt device was instrumental in ensuring Mum did not suffer as much as she might have and was able to pass peacefully into God's care, as she would have wanted to.

Startling. The system was in place 4 days and my mother connected with her granddaughter and spoke with her great grandsons - and I wasn't there. Thank you Konnekt, it is as easy to use as you promote.

Thanks again to you and all the team for the blessing that Konnekt has been to us. I even got to see Mum and say goodbye via the videophone the day before she died, even though she was barely conscious in Canberra, and I was here on the Sunshine Coast. There was no way I could have got there in person in time as she went so quickly at the end. She was 95.

Alzheimers makes it so difficult for reliabkle remote connection. The Konnekt service was a Godsend for my mum. It was the only reliable communication method for years.

I inquired about this two weeks ago. Within a week, it was delivered to my home. Just connect to power and telephone line, and ready to go. Already programmed with my favorite 10 numbers. I would recommend Konnekt to every person like me who has a hearing problem.

I am a Health professional, and have an elderly Mother with severe hearing impairment. Mum thinks the phone is wonderful, as it has given her back some independence. For example if she needed to make an appointment over the phone , she would need me to do it for her , due to her hearing impairment. Now, she can communicate effectively with the person on the other end of the call and arrange appointments that suit her time frame. The phone has also assisted her to feel more connected as she can ring and talk to friends, whom she cannot visit due to distance.From a safety view point , I now feel my Mother would be able to dial 000 in an emergency, and successfully speak to and instruct the operator , if my elderly Father became acutely unwell and needed urgent medical care.I found organising the phone and the Customer service at Konnekt, to be excellent and have no hesitation in promoting this company and product.

I was looking for a mobile phone for my mum as she has dementia. I found Konnekt. From the very start I had amazing communication. The help to get my mother connected in NZ, with no wifi, I had roadblocks after roadblock. The patience that all the staff at KONNEKT trying to connect was so worth it and absolutely 👍 amazing 🤩.My mum was isolated from her loved 🥰 ones because she couldn’t remember numbers, screen to small, couldn’t hear. This is the perfect phone ☎️ for SENIORS. The smile on my mothers face now is PRICELESS. Her persona has picked up, she’s all excited to chat, we giggle like little school girls. Mum LOVES what KONNEKT did for her to connect her family, without all the hassles of the internet connection. KONNEKT did it all. Thank you John, Natalie, Karl, Daniel, John and everyone else who HELPED.BEST GIFT 🎁 EVER.I am sooo excited and very very HAPPY and GRATEFUL to KONNEKT. I will send you customers. FOREVER GRATEFUL 🙏❤️Robyn R.

The konnekt caption phone is amazing & so easy to use. It makes such a difference to someone who's only connection to the outside world can sometimes be only via the phone.

Many thanks to John, Karl and the team. My mum has severe hearing loss and the Captioning Videophone has been a life saver. Without it she simply would not be able to communicate with the outside world. It works reliably, is simple to use and the support provided by Konnekt has been first class.

For the last six months or so we have been using a Konnekt video phone to talk to Mum. She is in her mid nineties, with mobility issues and a hearing impairment.The device has been absolutely brilliant. Mum can see faces, and so see expressions and lip movements, and also read the captions as needed. And the family can see her! In many ways it is easier for her to communicate using the Konnekt than it is to talk to someone in the room with her.Moreover, the service provided by Konnekt staff has been exceptional. They are immediately available throughout the same service that the device uses. They have talked us through technical issues, customise the interface for our needs, and provided advice on placing the device in the best location.Konnekt enabled us to take advantage of the Telstra scheme making the device very affordable.The Konnekt is easy to use - Mum calls us regularly - it has made a quite substantial improvement in connecting Mum to her family.Highly recommended.

The Konnekt Videophone has been an invaluable addition to our daily routine, providing a lifeline to my 85 year old grandma's well-being. With the ability to visually connect with her every morning, we ensured she took her pills and checked in on her health. The peace of mind this device brought is beyond measure. Moreover, the Konnekt team's exceptional support promptly addressed any issues we encountered. A heartfelt 5/5 for the outstanding service that has truly made a difference for our family.

This has made the world of difference to my 96 year old aunt with hearing difficulties still living at home. I was worried about introducing new technology at her age but with a little encouragement and help she is now confident to ring her contacts and have some better conversations with the captioning and Skype video calls.It has kept her in touch with family.Great service and staff to help with set up.

My mother loves her new phone. She wears a cochlear implant and has been deaf from birth. Now thanks to her new phone she can make her own appointments, at doctors, dentists and other medical offices. She loves the weekly catch-up with family as she can now see them when she speaks to them.The team at Konnekt were brilliant in setting up the phone, by rushing to have it delivered, and working on a Saturday on a long week so that I could travel to help mum setup.Sometime the teletext is a little off in getting some words correct but that just adds ti the fun. Well done. Great invention and no outlay cost, so anyone can afford it.

I organised the Konnekt video captioning phone for my Aunt-in-law who is 94 years old! She has been mostly deaf for the last year, however suddenly had complete hearing loss and her inability to socialise by any means other than writing isolated her greatly and impacted her mental well being. She reluctantly agreed to hearing aids and we were recommended to Konnekt services to try and resolve the phone issue.We did doubt her ability to adapt to these new devices as is very technically challenged and resistant, however to our utmost surprise and joy she has taken to both, and the Konnekt video captioning phone has made a massive difference to her, now being able to communicate with her small family and social circle again. She has got the hang of it reasonably quickly and is making calls everyday. So nice to see her face light up when she sees us, and also to watch her reading the captioning when not quite catching the words. Brilliant!The Konnekt team are absolutely amazing. They have responded so quickly to the whole process from start to finish and ongoing with any queries or changes we need.I would 100% recommend this product and company.
