KidGlov, a boutique, full-service advertising, branding and content marketing agency based out of Lincoln and Omaha, Neb., recently welcomed Scott Lien, co-founder and CEO of GrandPad, to its podcast, Agency for Change. The episode explored how the organization connects seniors with their families.
“During the pandemic, many older adults were isolated from their families for weeks and months on end,” said Lisa Bowen, KidGlov vice president managing director. “Scott and the team at GrandPad are solving the senior isolation problem, with incredible devices designed for older adults to connect and thrive.”
Based in Minneapolis, GrandPad is a digital health company that develops engagement solutions to improve the health and well-being of older adults by reconnecting them to families, friends, and caregivers through technology that is safe, reliable, and easy to use. The GrandPad purpose-built tablet for people over the age of 75 – the first mobile device of its kind – addresses usability, security, and connectivity issues that are often roadblocks to integrating remote monitoring and telehealth into professional and familial caregiving settings.
The company’s secure cloud platform with built-in LTE and web applications allows care teams and family members to engage remotely with older adults without depending on WiFi connectivity. GrandPad enables a variety of interactions, including video calls, sharing essential care-related emails and messages, and conducting multi-party video care conferences between family members and a patient’s continuum of caregivers.
During the Agency for Change podcast, Lied discusses how GrandPad helps seniors connect, how they consult a focus group of older adults when introducing products and services, and what inspired him to create the business.
“Standard technology was designed by 30-year-olds for 30-year-olds,” said Lien. “I saw seniors in my own life struggle and get frustrated using the technology, and it was isolating them. We’ve designed GrandPad for them, focused on reconnecting them in a safe, engaging way with their family, friends and caregivers.”
