Why CallGenie is the Best Video Call Device for the Elderly 

The modern world is teeming with technological advancements, and while these innovations offer remarkable benefits, they can also be overwhelming, especially for seniors. For this demographic, simplicity and functionality are paramount. Recognising these unique needs, CallGenie has emerged as the best video call device for the elderly and seniors. Here’s why:

Simplicity is Key

CallGenie stands out in the tech world because it priorities the needs of the elderly above all. Unlike other devices that require the senior to navigate interfaces, CallGenie is unique; the family controls the call, ensuring the elderly person doesn’t need to touch or adjust anything. It’s a seamless experience tailored to provide utmost ease and comfort.

Leveraging the Familiarity of TVs

Instead of introducing a completely new device, CallGenie capitalises on a household staple: the television. Most seniors have spent years, if not decades, using their TVs. This familiarity reduces the learning curve significantly.

Automatic Call Answering

The brilliance of CallGenie lies in its auto-answer feature. When someone calls, the television will automatically switch to the incoming video call. This eradicates the need for the elderly to fumble with buttons or navigate confusing menus.

TV Power-Up and Channel Reversion

If the TV is off, CallGenie will power it on for an incoming call. After the call concludes, the TV reverts back to its previous state, whether that’s being turned off or returning to the prior channel.

Subtitles for Clear Communication

Understanding that some seniors might have hearing challenges, CallGenie, in conjunction with Skype, offers a subtitles feature. This ensures that even if words are missed, they can be read, making conversations smoother and more enjoyable.

Eliminating Complicated Setups

One of the major deterrents for seniors embracing new technology is the complicated setup process. With CallGenie, this hurdle is removed. The device offers remote setup assistance, ensuring that the system is operational without any hassle. Safety and Privacy First Elderly users need not worry about unsolicited calls or privacy invasions. CallGenie has robust safety mechanisms in place, allowing only approved contacts to initiate calls.

Consistent Support

In the event of any confusion or issues, seniors aren’t left on their own. CallGenie provides ongoing support, ensuring that every user feels confident and secure in their ability to use the device.


In a world where technological inclusivity is more critical than ever, CallGenie steps up as a beacon for the elderly and senior community. It goes beyond being just a device; it’s a bridge that connects seniors with their loved ones, making distances feel trivial. By combining simplicity, functionality, and thoughtful features, CallGenie truly stands out as the best video call device for the elderly and seniors.
