Perhaps you need to check in daily to ensure they are well? Or maybe they live alone, and you are concerned about loneliness and isolation? Link-ages can be the solution for you.
Stay in touch with Messaging and Photo Sharing
By downloading Hub onto an iPad or Android tablet for your older relative, and Go onto your smartphone, you can keep in regular contact via messages and pictures, and help them to maintain their calendar, in a quick and easy way.
