Full description:

Families are more dispersed than ever. And it can be challenging for seniors to feel connected to family that live all over the country or even the world.

We have a potential way for seniors to feel more connected to both people and places they love – like taking a virtual day out together with family. We're keen to gather feedback from both seniors and their family, to help us understand the value and improve our service

Organisation

The Astonishing Visit

Our mission is to help reduce the isolation of seniors by helping them feel more connected to both people and places they love with a totally new kind of video calling.

This new technology is like a virtual day out you can take with your family, wherever they are. For example, you could fly over the Alps, together with your granddaughter. Or walk through New York City with your son.

We're a small team of passionate of a designer, engineers and a researcher, and we'd love to get our support.
