In the second half of the program, Rabbi Address speaks with Kian Saneii, Founder, Chief Executive Officer & Chairman of Independa.com, a company that is promoting the use of smart TVs to provide elder care monitoring services and social networking. Independa’s cloud-based software solution adds value to each member within the circle of care, from our customer organization to the care recipient to the personal caregiver. Care recipients enjoy social integration and important appointment and medicine reminders through the world’s first and only TV with embedded remote care services. While the organization and the friends and family of the care recipient engage through a comprehensive integrated online portal to establish and track alerts for when something isn’t quite right, appointments through a shared calendar, fully integrated health, activity and safety metrics, and more.
