Konnekt In The News
26 Aug 2016 New Konnekt partnership assists moves into Aged Care:
Older Australians living independently or relocating into a nursing home, assisted living or serviced apartment are now able to stay in touch with family and friends worldwide, visually, at the touch of a button.
Konnekt’s collaboration with elderly relocation and placement firm Senior Moves provides peace of mind to children of older adults. Families experiencing the stress of leaving parents alone in new accommodation now have an easy way to make and receive face-to-face calls, significantly reducing their worry.
Our partnership with Australia’s most experienced Residential Care Placement and Senior Relocation provider positions the Konnekt Videophone as the appliance of choice for maintaining social connection with family and friends following a move. This will reduce social isolation, which is associated with depression, dementia and physical illness — Karl Grimm, CEO Konnekt Pty Ltd.
In consultation with family, Senior Moves takes care of every aspect of a permanent move, a temporary move into respite, or the redesign of the family home following a major illness or disability or the passing of a partner. Konnekt’s incredibly simple Videophone supports the emotional well-being of elderly singles and couples.
The Konnekt Videophone has been designed with a focus on simplicity to provide senior adults with the ideal phone to support a better quality of life. The image is large and the sound is loud and clear – both leading to the perfect device to keep up-to-date with your family and friends as often as you like — Ron Carroll, Director Senior Moves.
When it’s time to relocate, seniors with an existing Videophone can take it with them.
