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, education and care. For our elderly population, this means addressing the very real and debilitating challenges related to social isolation. Today more than ever, it’s vital to easily and cost effectively enable older adults to engage with the 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. Our Independa Health Hub®, integrated within Smart TVs from 2021 onward, provides consumers a wide range of free services, includes message sharing, photo sharing, games, and simplified video chat (requires a chat cam), amongst other free services such as a pharmacy discount card, tech tips educational videos, entertainment programing for older adults, and more. We continue to passionately do all we can to mitigate the challenges of isolation, challenges which sadly have always been there but are now only exacerbated “post COVID-19”.
