We believe that everybody should benefit from the Internet and other technological advancements. However, digital divide is huge currently between young and old. Between able and disabled. Even in developed countries like US, 30-40% of 65+ adults are unconnected. They are lonely, they are disengaged and they don't have access to a number of resources that might help improve their wellbeing.
SeeYouLink created an innovative social inclusion product, that provides senior people with safe, secure and accessible environment in order to enable connectedness, involvement, mental engagement and sense of purpose. From the point of view of the older adult, even those who never used a computer before, have low vision or mild dementia, SeeYouLink is as simple as flicking on a light!
“It changed my life for the better! It brought me into the 21st century.”
Henry is 85 years old SeeYouLink user. Before SeeYouLink, he have never used a computer, tablet or any other smart device. He uses SeeYouLink mostly to research about topics of his interest on the web.
“It makes me feel much more capable. It's like an extra arm!”
Hilda is 90 years old, and although she used a computer before SeeYouLink, she finds using SeeYouLink much easier and "clearer". She is exchanging "tones of emails" daily, listening to the music and watching ballet.
“The computers are marvelous things, because I can go to it and do some activity that engages my mind, and there is no other thing when you're alone. I would certainly recommended it!”
Edith Shablin is 98 years old and she never used a computer before she was introduced to SeeYouLink three years ago. She is now doing crosswords and other word games daily and having regular video calls with her niece living abroad. In her words, it makes her feel less lonely and help engage her mind.

Loneliness kills. Study after study, it has been proven that lack of meaningful social connection significantly reduces life expectancy.
We have built SeeYouLink to make it easy to stay in touch. Using our features like Email, Video Calling, Voice Messages and Photos, families can keep their loved ones in the loop and include them in the significant events of their lives.
Using any of the number of online communities designed for seniors, they can engage with their peers and even make new friends!
Nothing has such a detrimental effect on mental health like disengagement. In the age where the majority of younger people are struggling to keep up with all the information and entertainment, sadly, lots of seniors don't have access to any.
SeeYouLink comes loaded with games, news, web searching and more to keep their minds active and engaged.
Sense of Purpose
What is life without purpose? Although, we don't claim we provide purpose to life, we enable seniors to pursue their interests and passions whatever those might be.
Some of our users are writing their life stories, and some are researching topics they are passionate about such as history, by searching the web. Others are watching live streams from the local synagogue or church that they cannot visit any more due to the reduced mobility.
Being able to stay in touch visually with friends and family, being able to pursue interests and passions and stay mentally engaged, all improve wellbeing. In addition, we enable seniors to participate in online care video conferences and to consult with medical and wellbeing experts online.
Email is the most popular technology among seniors, and our statistics show that about 75% of our users exchange emails regularly!
Our Email feature can be used with any email provider that supports IMAP/SMTP email standard, such as Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, and most of the others.
We enable seniors to easily adjust the size of the text in the email to be optimal for their eyes. They can reply to messages without typing using our voice message option.
Photos that they receive via email can be easily saved into photo albums.
When it comes to seniors online, safety and privacy must come first, and we have designed our browser feature with that in mind.
Our web browser is based on standard, secure, open-source Chromium browser that is regularily kept up to date without any user intervention (or even awareness).
Popups are disabled, and it is not possible to download and run any malware.
On the other hand, it is straightforward and easy to adjust website text size, printing or saving the web page to favorites.
Favorite websites that senior visits daily can be added to SeeYouLink main menu to make access even simpler.
For those that are privacy concerned, we offer the option of using alternative search engine DuckDuckGo instead of the default Google Search.
Our Video Calling is based on industry-standard WebRTC technology that is inherently secure. Video calls placed through SeeYouLink platform and SeeYouLink Calling App are direct between the peers, using 256 bit AES encryption, and we or any other part does not have access to them.
We support up to 4 participants in a video conference, and we offer in-call chat so that even those who are non-verbal or hard-of-hearing can participate!
Our senior users of SeeYouLink Shell can invite an unlimited number of friends to join SeeYouLink for free and use SeeYouLInk Calling app. They only need to know their email address.
All the photos that the user receives through email can be easily saved to photo albums and viewed later. They can be used as a screensaver, and effectively turn their computer into a digital picture frame. While everybody appreciates the ability to see friendly and familiar faces daily, it has been proven to have exceptionally positive effects on Alzheimer patients.
Our News feature is built to provide ads and distraction free environment for reading. Text size can be easily adjusted and content can be printed for those who might prefer to read from the paper.
Alternatively, instead of reading the text, text can be read to the senior using our built-in text-to-speech functionality.
SeeYouLink comes loaded with games that are fun and competitive, which help to keep them active and alert. Some of our games include Solitaire, word games, as well as multiplayer Chess which allows you to play Chess with a friend while having a video call. Besides, we have some action games to help maintaining hands dexterity.
*Any Web-based Service
From the well known and popular services like Wikipedia, YouTube, Facebook, WebMD, and others, to the recently increasing number of online services made specifically for seniors, such as seniormatch.com, or seniorchatcity.com. With our safe and secure browser and option of adding favorites to the main menu, everything is easily accessible!
Although, most of our competitors are based on (Android) tablets, the tablet form factor is far from optimal for most of the seniors!
The screen size of the tablet is not optimal for the reduced eye-sight that comes naturally with age. Weakened hands dexterity makes it hard for seniors to manipulate content on small screens. To make things worst, most of the tablets don't have loud enough speakers for seniors. And, yes, they also tend to forget to charge devices or struggle with plugging charging cable.
SeeYouLink can run on almost any device that supports Windows operating system! Depending on the needs and abilities of seniors, SeeYouLink can be installed on:
All-in-one touch screen PC with large 19-24 inch screen, with or without keyboard and mouse (from our experience, this is optimal for most of the seniors).
Old, refurbished PC, with monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
Touch, or non-touch screen laptop.
PC-on-stick that plugs directly into the TV set and is navigated using remote control.
And yes, for those that prefer mobility and have good eye-sight, or are budget conscious- a tablet.
SeeYouLink acts as a one-and-only interface for the older adult, hiding all the complexities of the underlying system and preventing any unintended action that would jeopardize the system functionality or user safety, such as running files infected with viruses or malware, changing system settings or deleting important files.
Private & Secure
SeeYouLink does not provide access to user data by any 3rd party, and does not serve ads. All user data is transferred via secure connection, and stored in our encrypted database. Video calls placed through SeeYouLink platform and SeeYouLink Calling App for Android and iOS are direct between the peers, using 256 bit AES encryption.
Our interface can be fully navigated by touch only, mouse clicks only, keyboard only or by combining all of the mentioned.
We support assistive technology switches for people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities.
Flexible and Configurable
SeeYouLink can adapt to any level of senior user abilities and needs, and can be adjusted as the seniors skills and confidence grows.
Starting with video calling only, where senior touches the picture of a friendly face to make a call, to proficiency with using online productivity tools to do the research and writing. We have everybody covered.
