Dreamweaver Foundation, a Nebraska-based nonprofit,  announced an expanded partnership with GrandPad, bringing its Connecting Hope program to meet the needs of seniors across the entire U.S. and Puerto Rico. Providing isolated and lonely  seniors with a GrandPad tablet has resulted in hundreds of strengthened and meaningful ties to  family, friends and caregivers through this senior-friendly technology. 

“One of our GrandPad recipients contacted us recently to share her heartfelt gratitude for our  help during one of the most difficult times of her life. She couldn’t imagine going through  COVID-19, her husband’s illness and recent passing without her GrandPad from Dreamweaver  Foundation. She didn’t feel so alone and could be in touch with her family. This is exactly why  we work to provide GrandPad tablets to seniors in need,” said Cheri Mastny, executive director  of Dreamweaver Foundation.  

Since Dreamweaver Foundation announced the initial partnership with GrandPad it has donated  200 GrandPad tablets to older adults in 25 states. 

“The growth and expansion of the Dreamweaver Foundation is critically important as the  pandemic continues to keep terminally ill seniors more isolated than ever,” said Scott Lien, co-founder and CEO of GrandPad. “Our team at GrandPad is proud to support the Dreamweaver  mission and to improve the quality of life for terminally ill seniors by keeping them safely and  simply connected with their families, friends, and caregivers.” 

The GrandPad tablet is easy to use and comes with built-in 4G LTE connectivity, advanced  security features, ergonomic design, large icons, crisp screen resolution, and two front-facing  speakers. Each GrandPad tablet comes with 24/7/365 personalized support for troubleshooting  and questions. Loved ones and caregivers can connect to the platform through the GrandPad  Companion App when added by a designated administrator. The app is available on Android and  iOS.

“It is a direct connection to video chat and share memories with family and friends as often as they’d like. We are incredibly grateful for the ongoing support of GrandPad and our generous donors who have made it possible for us to reach more seniors with this incredible gift. Staying socially active and feeling connected to your community and loved ones is life-changing for our seniors, especially those who are experiencing immense feelings of loneliness and depression that sometimes come with a terminal and chronic illness,” said Mastny.
