Embraced by a technophobe nonagenarian

Over the years we tried to get my mom, now 92, to use various electronics like a laptop or iPad with disastrous results. She’s smart and an avid reader but is practically a Luddite. She barely uses the cell phone. I got her the GrandPad a couple of years ago when I read about its features and design—maybe this will work? It’s been a huge hit with her. Best part: she took ownership of it, figuring out how to use features on her own. I got it in large part because she is extremely hard of hearing and the feature allowing for typing what you are saying so she can read it in real time was a godsend. It turns out, though, that she also loves features that I didn’t think were a big deal, like the weather app and the online encyclopedia—she uses both every day. It’s very secure and the user can only have access to websites the administrator (in this case, me) authorizes. I added CNN and NPR at her request. She also figured out how to take photos and videos with it, which she posts on it for the rest of us to see and comment on; we can also post pics and videos. It’s been especially nice to have during the pandemic—it’s helped a lot with keeping her connected to her family. I highly recommend it; it’s worth trying even if your family member typically struggles with electronics.

A Suggestion from a 89 yr old Lady that is around “Siri.”

We saw how much my mother at 90 yrs liked The Basics of The GrandPad (we did not overwhelm her with anything like the internet, etc.. that the GrandPad had available, rather we just had the pictures, weather and voice with video) however, my husband’s mom’s children got her The GrandPad but introduced her at 89yrs old, to everything that The GrandPad had and because their mother was used to her older children always asking “Siri,” out loud a question, their mother wanted to do the same to The Grandpad and ask “Siri,” to call ……. a person’s name, which of course The Grandpad doesn’t do as their mother has at times issues with her fingers and hands and being able to see clearly what she is pressing … We are impressed with my 90 yr old mother who has The Grandpad and can get assistance thru The Grandpad however, my mother only likes that if one of her children are there at the same time. There are all kinds and sorts of people but wanted to share as we see tgat Tge Grandpad is a Great invention as far as we see it. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Great to keep in touch

My mom is 87 and has no experience with technology. I was concerned about her during and not being able to have visitors. It has been the best thing. She is hard of hearing and can hear better on this app instead of the phone.
The only thing I would suggest is to contact customer service before purchasing so they can check the signal. The device I got was preloaded with T-mobile and there was no signal where my mom lives. I called customer service and they found ATT had a very strong signal so they sent a new SIM card and it has worked great. She ended up in the hospital a week after she got this and it has been great to check on her and be able to see her. We also love being able to send her pictures. She enjoys the games and articles as well.
And the customer service reps are amazing!
