GrandPad promotes Julie Ament Gran to chief growth officer
Creator of first purpose-built tablet for seniors over the age of 75 sees continued commercial and consumer utilization for senior-friendly tablet.
GrandPad is custom built to meet the needs and interests of seniors who have had limited experience with technology, who have no or limited access to the internet, and who may have physical or cognitive limitations that make traditional mobile devices difficult to use.
"Innovative healthcare organizations realize the important role technology plays in keeping seniors connected with loved ones and their communities, while maintaining continuity of care and services," said Scott Lien, co-founder and CEO of GrandPad. "Over the past year, Julie has been instrumental in helping our commercial partners successfully integrate GrandPad into their telehealth strategies and I'm confident she will continue to guide our growth in this area as we collectively navigate through the pandemic and the dissemination of the COVID-19 vaccine."
GrandPad became a lifeline for families and caregivers around the world during COVID-19 safety restrictions and physical distancing, while also meeting an immediate need among senior care and healthcare companies in search of solutions that would allow them to continue to deliver clinical care and supportive services to seniors and at-risk populations across the country. Currently, more than 1.2 million people in over 120 countries use GrandPad to stay connected with loved ones.
"Our mission at GrandPad is to improve the lives of millions of seniors by reconnecting them with family, friends, and caregivers. It is a true privilege to lead such a talented team and to collaborate with partners who are committed to improving the quality of life for older adults who might otherwise be left behind by technology,"
