Developed by and for seniors of all ages, the GrandPad, an uncomplicated eight-inch personal tablet, completely squashes the long-held myth that seniors and technology aren’t meant to coexist. With simplicity at its core (and central to its success), using the GrandPad enables seniors to feel competent, confident, and connected. The specially designed tablet couldn’t be easier to set up, use, and charge — no complicated steps or multiple wires are involved. Simply plug the charging cradle into an electrical outlet, set the GrandPad into the cradle, and, Voila! The GrandPad is good to go and so is the user. The next step — simply open the GrandPad and begin.
Bridging distance and locations, this compact, technology-enabled tool gives seniors an invaluable benefit — the ability to easily stay connected in real-time to families, friends, and caregivers whether through live phone or video calls, email, or text. The result is a ’round-the-clock comforting connection.
Each GrandPad comes with a multitude of engaging activities, information sources, and entertainment through custom-built apps that enable:
All just a click away.
Built on a platform of intuitive technology that is designed for 75+-year-old users vs. a 30-year-old who has very different physical and cognitive capabilities, the GrandPad features a unique interface with one-touch video chat or phone calling capability, voice-generated texting and e-mailing, and secure sharing of treasured photos sent by family and friends that automatically become entertaining rotating screen savers. There’s also no need to rely on, remember, and periodically change passwords, particularly for WiFi, thanks to built-in 4G LTE data that allows users to seamlessly navigate all features.
Contributing to its trademark ease of use are the GrandPad’s large, easy-to-read fonts, simplified navigation through colorful touch-screen buttons, and noticeably fewer options to reduce frustration and feeling overwhelmed.
But, at the top of a long list of benefits are GrandPad’s ultimate built-in safety measures and the company’s unwavering commitment to high security that protects seniors from dangerous robocalls, spam, hacking, or cyber scams and abuse. Designed with highly vulnerable seniors in mind, users can only be contacted by their private network of friends and family coordinated by the user’s personal administrator.
If help is ever needed, exceptional 24/7/365 live customer service is provided by supportive, understanding, and above all, patient representatives, reflecting GrandPad’s culture of caring.
GrandPads are available directly through the GrandPad company by phone (800.704.9412) or online (grandpad.net). With holidays on the horizon, what better gift than the gift of comfort, connection, and joy.
