Socialization Features


TouchScreen Image
From the online GrandCare portal, designated caregivers can add personalized photos, messages, reminders, videos, favorite music, and more right to the touchscreen inside the loved one’s home. It’s easy to set up a Facebook feed, so a loved one can automatically see specified Facebook photo albums from family and friends. One-button video chat (utilizing Skype) can also be set up to easily connect the generations.

Entertainment


Each GrandCare System comes preloaded with optional stock photos, card and board games, trivia, brain exercises, spiritual offerings, weather reports, news headlines, word definitions, music and nostalgic “did you know” information. Family can also add video and music links, specific news and websites, and more.
