Independa’s COVID-19 (Coronavirus) response
It’s been our mission and passion since our founding in 2009 to provide the world’s most flexible, easiest to use solution for remote engagement and care. For our elderly population, this means addressing the very real and debilitating challenges related to social isolation. Today’s COVID-19 pandemic is driving self-imposed isolation, as well as regional or community based quarantines. Today more than ever it’s vital to easily and cost effectively have an older adult engage with the outside world socially, emotionally, clinically, educationally, and more.
In this spirit, Independa is doing all we can to support our customers and new prospects to leverage our TV-based solution for remote engagement – including simplified video chat, picture sharing, messaging, calendar reminders, and a variety of other integrated features and benefits. We have inventory, and are all working remotely but feverishly to do all we can to help mitigate the challenges of isolation, challenges which were always there but are now greatly exacerbated with COVID-19.
As we bring on new partners in senior living and homecare, looking to quickly implement our solutions within their customer base, we are also mindful of individual families who can benefit from our system. To this end, during our COVID-19 era, we are temporarily directly accommodating individual sales for your loved ones. If this is your situation, please let us know through firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’d like to implement Independa within your senior living or home care customer base, please connect with us via email@example.com. If you are experiencing financial challenges at the moment, like so many other individuals and businesses, we will do all we can to be of help. Our goal is to be of immediate value to those in need.
Below I’ve included a few helpful sites for reliable information on COVID-19:
- https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html (Johns Hopkins global, US and local interactive heat map tracking of COVID-19 cases and other statistics
- https://accelerator.weather.com/ (IBM Watson / Weather Channel Global and US statistics, including interactive down to county level in the US)
- https://www.google.com/search?q=coronavirus+tips&fbx=dothefive (5 to-do tips from Google. Simple, but should reemphasized always.)
I’m very much looking forward to the day where can take down this virus!
Wishing you and all those you care for health and safety!
PS – If you haven’t in a while, call an older adult you know to check in on them. 🙂
