Let GrandPad Bring Your Family Together this Winter

November generally is a time of elections and family celebrations.

November generally is a time of elections and family celebrations. We offer our thanks for the joys of life lived, and look forward with hope for peace, good health and safety. Celebrating alone is not ideal but is a reality for many of our seniors. These are difficult times, but we can use technology to overcome the divide, keeping our loved ones engaged and healthy.

GrandPad is a creative way to overcome the prolonged separation forced upon us by COVID-19. It is specifically designed to be simple to use for seniors or anyone who is not comfortable with today’s cell phones or computers. A simple tap on one of the GrandPad’s large icons allows the user to make a phone call (either audio or video), view photos or play games and music. Emails are simple to create using voice recording and sent with a touch of a button. The intuitive interface allows the user to tap on telehealth for doctor visits, or use Zoom to join group engagement activities with friends, neighbors or fellow residents. There is even a button to call The Option Group, so you can seamlessly reach your Care Coordinator.

The GrandPad is secure from scammers and telemarketers, only allowing authorized family members or providers to access the user.

The Option Group is committed to providing the GrandPad service to our clients.
