We are pleased to be offering the following devices to help older adults maintain their independence and quality of life as they age.

  • Ring Video Doorbells with a free Ring Protect Basic subscription for the life of each donated device.
  • Echo Show 8 devices and motion sensors with an optional Alexa Together subscription that would have to be purchased by the user. With the Echo Show 8, users have the ability to make video calls, schedule routines, start once motion is sensed and set timers and update lists by asking Alexa. Alexa Together is a remote caregiving service, designed to give family members peace of mind with features like 24/7 access to trained Urgent Response agents.

Alexa Together
Alexa Together is a way to provide support for your loved ones, keeping you together even when you are apart. To get started, you will need:

  • One Alexa Together Subscription: $19.99/month plus tax (paid by user) after the 30-day free trial. Cancel anytime.
  • One Echo Device: Only the person receiving support is required to have an Echo device. The supporting family member just needs the Alexa app installed on their mobile device. However, if both parties have smart display devices you can video chat. 
  • Two separate Amazon accounts: One for you, one for your loved one.
