“CAN SOMEONE LEND A HAND? ”
Help requests make it easy to handle everyday things like changing a light bulb or getting milk from the store.
An alarm activated via the phone’s assistance button can alert a whole network of people that help is urgently needed.
“I CAN’T HEAR THE PHONE”
With remote assistance, settings such as sounds, volume, etc. can be adjusted remotely, without having to be there in person.
FREE TRIAL AND EASY TO SET UP
Doro Connect and Care is pre-installed on most Doro Smartphones**. Either the Doro user or a relative can set up the account and create a network of helpers. Other friends and family can then be invited to join the network and download a free relative app that they can use on their own smartphone.
The service is free for the first year. After that only one user, either the person who created the network or the Doro phone user, will be charged a subscription fee of 2.99€/month. The service remains free for all the other members of the network.
Available to download for Android devices from Google Play and from the App Store for iOS.
HOW IT WORKS
|NETWORK OF CARERS
||ASSISTANCE BUTTON||ACTIVITY LOG|
|As nice as it may be to have someone you depend on drop by every time you need something, long distances and busy schedules can often stop that from happening. By using Doro Connect & Care® you can easily create and stay in touch with a network of family and friends, thus providing you with a larger circle of connected people you can rely on for support.||The built-in assistance button on your Doro Smartphone can be set up to alert your C&C network if you have an urgent situation. It enables the person who is able to respond to keep other network members informed. A location message can also be sent to the person responding to the alert.||
The activity log feature keeps track of when you last answered a call and lets others in the network know if there is a reason to be concerned. For example, should you miss a certain number of calls, Connect and Care will automatically send out an alert so that people can easily check to make sure you are ok.
||TO DO LIST||GPS LOCATION|
When remembering becomes harder, it’s reassuring to know Doro Connect and Care helps you to keep track of important events and appointments. Anyone in the network can add a reminder to your phone so that you will be gently reminded in plenty of time.
|Not every request for help is an emergency. With Doro C&C it’s easy to get help, even for everyday things like picking up a few groceries. Shared to do lists give everyone an easier way to coordinate who takes care of what. And you don’t need to feel like you’re imposing on any one person||
The GPS functionality built into Doro Connect and Care is a great way to keep family and friends in your network informed of your location. It also works together with the Assistance Button to provide your GPS location in the case of an emergency.
Not loud enough? Too bright? No worries.
Thanks to remote assistance anyone in the network can easily adjust the phone’s sounds, ringer and speaker volume, display brightness, text size, etc. And they can do it directly from their own phone.
