A service that lets you see and talk to the person you care for through the TV. The ease of use and availability across a wide range of devices means that friends, family and carers can see and talk to each other more often. This gives vital reassurance for a wide range of carers who cannot be there all of the time.
v-connect uses the TV at home to provide a reliable video connection at the press of a button: no computers or specialist skills required.
For family and carers, this helps you balance your caring role with pressures of everyday life. Being able to trust the service dramatically increases self-confidence and independence.
The cost of Companion can be included as part of your care package if you have a personal budget.
