One of the biggest concerns in our society and most particularly among aging seniors is the feeling of loneliness that they experience, especially after the loss of a long-time spouse and companion. Mon Ami™ can play an important part in maintaining a level of connection with their family and friends.
The other aspect that can accompany loneliness is the lack of mind-engaging activities on a daily basis. Mon Ami™ can help in this area as well.
Mon Ami™ can help by:
Connecting the user with family and friends through video chat and email
Stimulating the mind by reading books aloud, playing music, playing intellectual games and providing access to a wide range of Internet radio sites
Keeping the user informed about current weather conditions as well as the date and time on demand
Enabling the user to reminisce about the past by recording the user’s memoirs for their family
Enabling family members to be involved in the life of the user through a shared calendar and by providing questions for the memoirs
Assisting with memory jogs by maintaining a daily schedule and reminding the user about daily routines
Keeping the user interested in the activities of those around them by reminding them about important dates and events
Assisting the user to keep track of favourite TV programs through the use of appropriate reminders
Accessing Internet radio stations to keep abreast of current events
