We all miss our Grannies so much during this tough time of social distancing. Technology is a way to keep in touch with our loved ones. However, it could be challenging sometimes. Are you looking for a solution to the tech gap between you and Granny?

With a little help from Amazon Echo Show 5, it’s really as simple as that. Let me show you.

Easy-to-use Technology Products for Elderly

Before we start, try to recall the first time you introduced a mobile phone to Granny. Not quite a smooth experience, was it?

You’re now enabled to make hands-free calls to friends and family who have an Echo Show 5 or the Alexa app on your smartphone. Check out a video call demo here on how to make video calls.

And that’s it! By simply saying, “Alexa, call Edward”, making a video call is never a challenge to any tech-noobies anymore!

Elderly’s Everyday-Life Tech Support, a Smart Personal Assistant

Apart from a phone, the Echo Show 5 is also a smart personal assistant. It’s a clock, a radio, a news station, a task reminder, an audiobook, a weather forecaster, a podcast player – it’s basically what Granny needs for her everyday life. And it all could be done by voice control.

Your solution: get Granny an Echo Show 5. From now on, Granny will find you, and Granny will call you.

Here’s a useful article from Tech-enhanced Life exploring the Echo Show 5’s capabilities from the perspective of an elder adult. Key takeaways:

  • Voice-activated calls are sometimes easier.
  • Hands-free video calls can make interactions richer.
  • It’s an all-in-one design which is much louder than either a computer or mobile phone.

We might be apart away physically from our family, but I’m pretty sure our Grannies will be excited to connect with us effortlessly through technology.
