With Mother's Day approaching, many families are looking for the perfect way to honor the mother figures in their lives. When it comes to shopping for mom, most people think of flowers, candy, and cards. As we get older, we often find that sending a card simply isn’t enough to express our love and gratitude for our mothers. After all, what mom wants most is more time with her family.
The best gift you can give your mom is your time, but when visits are restricted or limited, technology like GrandPad can help mom stay connected with you, and her entire extended family — near and far — throughout the year. Now, for a limited time, every customer who purchases a new annual GrandPad subscription will receive $100 in Grand Rewards.
“There is no greater gift for a parent or grandparent than to be able to see and talk to their family every day,” said GrandPad co-founder and CEO Scott Lien. “We’re excited to complement our one-of-a-kind tablet with our new Grand Rewards to give families a financial perk for putting their trust in our technology and our team. GrandPad is built specifically for the needs and interests of people over the age of 75, so it’s easy, safe, and fun to use.”
The Grand Rewards promotion is available until May 10, 2021 for anyone who purchases a new annual GrandPad subscription online at GrandPad.net or by calling toll-free 1-800-704-9412. After completing their purchase, customers will receive $100 in Grand Rewards that can be redeemed between August 10, 2021 and August 10, 2023.
Music is powerful and, according to many studies, it also has health benefits for older adults. Science has shown that music can help those suffering from Alzheimer’s retrieve old and form new memories.
GrandPad includes streaming music access to over 30 million songs—ad-free. Seniors can listen to the classics or new releases using the GrandPad’s music app. Seniors can also tune in to live, local radio stations that can keep them connected to their hometowns, or to topics they find entertaining and educational.
A video call is a great way to tell mom how much you care and to make her feel like you’re close by, even if you’re not. GrandPad makes voice and video calling loved ones simple. Spend time chatting with mom 1-on-1, or invite the whole family to enjoy a virtual Mother’s Day brunch together via Zoom.
The large buttons and senior-friendly interface allow your loved ones to connect without hassle. There is no dialing or typing required—just tap a button. It’s easy for GrandPad users to join family calls, celebrations like Mother’s Day, webinars, community events, and alike—from anywhere.
A photo is not just a photo, it is one piece of a puzzle in how we make sense of our lives. Family photos are incredibly powerful, especially in the lives of older adults. If you have a favorite photo of your mom from when she was younger, share it with her and your family on the GrandPad. It’s a great way to help her remember that time in her life, and it may inspire her to share her stories.
GrandPad features a camera that makes it easy to take photos or videos and share them with the entire family. Your mom can easily attach a voice comment to photos your family shares on the GrandPad. Those messages then become memories that can last a lifetime.
With GrandPad, you can stay connected with the moms in your life and spend more time face-to-face, even if you live a thousand miles away. Whether you plan to celebrate safely in-person or virtually, GrandPad can help to make this Mother's Day one that mom will cherish.
