We’re excited to have been recognized by one of the foremost thought leaders in aging tech, Laurie Orlov. Laurie is a tech industry veteran, writer, speaker and elder care advocate and the founder of Aging in Place Technology Watch.
Today, Aging in Place Technology Watch highlighted GoGoGrandparent in a piece entitled “Five Tech-Enabled Ride Service Options for Older Adults:”
“GoGoGrandparent wants to let folks live in their home for as long as possible. We started because a grandmother’s license was expiring, she had glaucoma in both eyes and was facing a future where she would be dependent on others. By using on demand technology in a way she could understand, we were able to change that. Today GoGoGrandparent connects seniors to Uber. Soon we’ll be doing the same thing for meals, groceries and medicine. We are working towards a platform that loved ones and their families can use to take care of each other without upending life.”
