Caregiver Help Radio – Technology to Help Older People Live Independently

Finding the balance between supporting aging parents and micromanaging their lives is delicate. Wouldn’t it be great if you could support an older person who wants to live independently without feeling the need to check in several times a day? Imagine how nice it would be to have a two-way conversation rather than a one-way interrogation. Join us as we speak to David Glickman, co-founder of Live!y, a company that monitors the activities of an older person without the use of granny-cams or emergency responders. This innovative company offers a program that reaches across generations by incorporating simple technology to keep younger family members informed, along with an old-fashioned and valued form of communication – a card with family photos delivered into the older person’s mailbox on a regular basis. Check out MyLive!y on KickStarter to learn how you can participate in the introduction of this innovative new service.
