It’s true that the responsibilities of caregiving often fall to one person. There are many reasons family members aren’t able to help: Lack of time, physical distance, childcare, even tricky relationships between members or parents are just some of the big reasons we’ve heard. A common complaint we hear from caregivers is they simply feel very alone.
Over time, the stress takes a terrible toll on their physical and mental health and can build resentment toward family at a time when they could and should be pulling together.
Many family members don’t realize a time commitment as a “Helper” doesn’t need to be long to make a difference!
The truth is, even a daily 10-15 minute video-call with a senior has positive effects on emotional and physical health. For the primary caregiver, that 10-15 minutes has an even bigger impact- time to take a walk, have a snack and just the simple relief of knowing someone has their back.
Right about now, you may be thinking, “Video calling was too hard or didn’t work for us”.
Livindi makes it easy for everyone.
Livindi works with our LivindiPad Tablet (or an iPad). Family members use the Livindi App to make a videocall to the senior and each other. The Livindipad comes ready to use-just plug it in and go! Your senior can start a videocall by pressing a picture, there are no numbers or passwords to remember. Videocalls also have transcription and closed captions, so your senior can read along with the conversation. Family members can also use the App to send pictures and videos directly to the tablet. Watch our video to see how easy it is to call your senior.
