This campaign is to find about 10 people that could use the Sidekick SOLO device and to do fundraising to cover the cost of building and customizing the devices for them.
The Sidekick SOLO is an all-in-one device built to help seniors stay in touch with the outside world. Our website - https://seniorsidekick.net/ explains all the features of the product.
With the onset of the Covid virus, many of our seniors have been isolated in ways that they never experienced before. Their loved ones found it almost impossible to get through the many barriers that were put in place to protect them.
This campaign combines two needs - identifying people who can use the device and finding people that are willing to help fund the effort.
Many people could put the Sidekick to good use, but in order to make this a reality, we will need to have someone to which we can send the device, who can get the device placed in the living area of the person(s) who will use it. They will also need to get it connected to an available Wifi network. This can be a family member, activities person at a nursing home, a designated caretaker who has permission to visit, etc... This person is our main point of contact, the advocate for the person(s) using the device
The advocate also helps with music selection, video calling (Skype) addresses, gathering family photos and other preferences.
Anyone who has a heart and the means to help with this effort. The cost to build the Sidekick SOLO is about 250.00 We would build the device and put our software on it and get the device configured for the person using it. We also provide technical support for the users and the advocate once the device is in place. We would offer the support free for a year. After that... well, we can cross that bridge when we come to it.
If you have a name for a candidate, please use which ever means you see fit to contact me. (Comment, Messenger, our Web Site, etc..) Send me your name (assuming you are the advocate) and your contact information.
We will update this page with information about the number of candidates we have collected. The page itself will display the funds that have been raised.
Thank you for your consideration and support.
