NEW: Presto, Computerless Email Service!

New @ Home Health Tech

Aging in one’s own home is a highly desired goal, but one that can breed social isolation which is prevalent among older Americans. And since 62% of Americans over age 65 don’t use a computer, it’s more important than ever to find a solution that provides a rich connection between family members of all ages. By selling Presto as a home health tech solution for aging-in-place, you make it possible for whole families to communicate with elder loved ones by sending email, digital photos and documents. The seniors don’t need a computer or Internet service, just the Presto Mail service and Printing Mailbox available from Home Controls. By installing this new service it will provide a renewed link between elders and their family that can significantly improve their quality of life and ability to age-in-place.

    This is a great idea for old people who would just get ripped off by the internet devils ( like my grandmother ) . It is a wee bit of a waste to the environment although , and what happens if a inappropriate mail gets through ? ?

    • The system is completely spam-proof. You program the system with a list of acceptable email addresses (from families, friends, neighbors, and the like) that your grandmother wants to receive emails. If someone that is not on that list tries to send an email, then Presto stops them! And Presto is actually better for the environment, compared to your grandmother getting a full computer system — that would include more hardware, more products, more software, more packaging, etc.
