Video calling devices designed for elderly people in the UK?
Yes, there is a video calling device that is specifically designed for elderly people in the UK called CallGenie. CallGenie was created to address the challenges faced by individuals who want to stay in regular contact with their elderly relatives who may have dementia or mobility issues.
Smart Life Solutions is pleased to announce that UK customers can now buy CallGenie Appliances and claim VAT relief for the disabled. This applies to purchases where they, or the person they are buying a CallGenie Appliance for, are chronically sick or disabled and they are using the CallGenie Appliance for their own personal or domestic use.
What devices are there to support people with Dementia?
This was the question I was asking when my own mother was first diagnosed with dementia. As a family we all agreed that, as per my mother’s wishes, we would keep her at home as long as we could. This lead to the question which Dementia devices could we deploy for an 80 year old woman to help keep her feeling safe, comfortable and supported?
PayPal “Pay in 3” now available for CallGenie Purchases
Due to popular demand, Smart Life Solutions is pleased to announce the introduction of an option to buy the CallGenie Appliance using a PayPal account. In addition, we are also offering PayPal’s “Pay in 3” service which allows our customers to spread the cost of purchasing a CallGenie Appliance over 3 interest-free payments, with the first payment due at the time of purchase.
All the existing payment methods for upfront payments using Credit/ Debit Cards, Apple Pay and Google Pay remain in place.
We are getting a lot of interest from customers outside of the UK, Europe and North America wanting to buy CallGenie appliances. Unfortunately, neither Smart Life Solutions nor its distribution partners are currently able to ship fully configured CallGenie appliances to customers outside of the UK, Europe and North America. However, this post details how to build your own CallGenie appliance using parts readily available on e-commerce sites such as Amazon.
(Posted: 11th August 2021) Smart Life Solutions has moved its operations from Hartley Wintney, Hampshire to Mersea Island in Essex. After a little disruption, which hopefully our customers didn’t notice too much, we are now back up to full operational capacity.
For the time being we are still contactable on the old phone number, 01252 918824, but that will be replaced over time.
We’re sorry but we’ve stopped doing IT support and consultancy
At the end of 2020 Smart Life Solutions took the decision to re-focus its business around the CallGenie Simple Video Phone for the Elderly. This means that we are no longer going to provide IT support and consultancy services to new customers.
We’ve become a product company
Smart Life Solutions is the developer of the Callgenie Simple Video Phone for the Elderly. We sell pre-configured appliances for the UK market. Worldwide, we sell CallGenie software to systems integrators and tech-savvy individuals who want to build and maintain their own CallGenie appliances.
