Loneliness and isolation can be a huge problem for older people; a problem that has severe impacts on physical and mental health. In this new Housing LIN guest blog, Penny Grosett, Senior Community Engagement Manager at Sparko VRC discusses their new tech-based solution which aims to get older people digitally connected.

Offering a combination of a human and technology enabled solution consisting of a set top box that connects to the TV and a simple remote control, their services are designed to ensure that their members continue to be part of a community, connected to loved ones, maintaining their independence and keeping mind and body active.

And if this is of interest, learn more at tomorrow’s HAPPI Hour session and listen to Sparko’s CEO, Orit Eyal-Fibeesh and Ann Brolan, Wellbeing Development Manger at Anchor Hanover East London discuss how their partnership has opened up possibilities about how they deliver these services for Anchor Hanover’s older residents.
