I LOVE the Claris Companion! I’ve been telling everyone about it and giving demos to my friends with elderly parents. It has improved my mom’s quality of life because she feels more in touch with her family and friends. I can’t say enough good things.

This device continues to be a BIG help with my family. We can text Mom and not wake them from naps; it adds a smile to their day to come home and get pictures and messages; Mom can keep in touch with a childhood friend, and Dad can keep in touch with a dear friend, too. And kids and grandkids can join in. Also, they don’t get annoying spam, other unwanted emails, or other junk. Mom REALLY enjoys this, and it helps her feel in touch with others even when she’s home. It’s great for all of us!

I recently bought Claris Companion for my 92-year-old mother because she loved to write and receive emails on her discontinued Web-TV email service, but refuses to learn how to use a computer. Given her fear of new technology, my mother and I were a little hesitant that the Companion would be as easy to use as promised. But after a remarkably short learning curve — aided by the Companion’s patient customer support team — she quickly became adept at reading and replying to emails (even using a Bluetooth keyboard), and now refers to the Companion as “magic” since she knows it works, but doesn’t know how, and — crucially — doesn’t care. My mother was forlorn when she heard her previous email service was being discontinued because email is the way she keeps in touch with family and friends scattered around the world. She feared she’d lose that connection — and the simple joy of writing, which she loves — because she didn’t want to tackle having learning a computer. Now she’s delighted with the Companion for preserving a key part of her life. All she’s got to do is touch the screen a few times to receive and write messages. She and I are extremely grateful for the Claris Companion, and the company behind it. Thank you.”

My mother says that Claris Companion is like having a friend and company in the house. As soon as she comes in she checks it, looks at the pictures and sends a message to the grandkids about what she did and where she is/was going. The look on her face and the smile is priceless. SHE LOVES IT and it makes her day very special!”

My brother and I purchased the Claris Companion 6 months ago for my Mom who is 83 and she can’t get around much. She lives alone and is quite a distance from me. She is totally computer illiterate. Although she was reluctant at first to even look at the Claris device, she now is in love with it! Once she saw how easy it was to work it, she now sits in front of it waiting for pictures, videos, e mails, and video chats from her grandchildren. And she loves the medication reminders I set up for her. And she now knows how to respond to emails. It has opened up a whole new world for her and Claris is now a very welcome member of our family. Also, I must add that the customer support is top notch. Whenever I have a problem, issue or question, their support team continues to provide friendly, professional , knowledgeable, and trustworthy service and advice. Thank you Claris Companion for putting a smile on my Mother’s face and keeping her “connected”.”

My grandfather turned 90 last Friday and is a WWII veteran. He has been able to find so many things to like about Claris Companion. He likes it for the date and time, as a picture frame and for appointment reminders. We have used it to look up Ulithi (where he was stationed in the war) and was impressed to be able to see what it looks like today. I still brag about Claris and how you worked with us to facilitate our specific needs, and I believe that it really did help. Thank you again!”

My mother was no longer able to manage the complexities of a computer, but now she can keep in touch with all her friends and family using Claris Companion. She loves getting the pictures and it is a great addition that we can send videos. We also find that adding our events as we organize them is helpful for the caregivers to keep track of things.”

Claris Companion is working so well for my grandmother. Thank you! Your product helps change perspective towards technology, keep international families in touch, and reduce stress on primary caregivers and people living abroad. I have witnessed all four of these aspects in as many weeks.”

For some people getting to the phone is a pain even if it’s next to them – with Claris Companion, I can send them a message and it’s going to pop-up right in front of them.”
The medications reminder is a great benefit – my mother used to have fainting episodes, but had none since she started using the Companion.”
The Companion is exactly what we needed to manage home care – it’s a brilliant device. It really helps provide more peace of mind.”
I receive updates daily letting me know that my mother has successfully checked in, this provides a great deal of peace of mind for me… As my parents live an hour out of town and it’s comforting to know each morning that they are up and doing fine. Grandma especially enjoys being able to receive pictures of the children and her friends. And soon we will fully utilize the medication monitoring system which will prove to be quite helpful as they are both on quite a bit of medication. I especially like the fact that this product is so user-friendly. Although my mother worked in a corporate environment, she never utilized a computer so having a simple touchscreen has made the use of this product very easy for her.”
Claris Companion is brilliantly conceived. I felt so much more at ease getting text message alerts when our father had taken his medication. It can really help provide more peace of mind to family members concerned about elderly loved ones.”
Wow! What a great product! It has helped me keep to a more regular daily schedule regarding my medication, and monitoring my blood sugar and blood pressure levels. I’m so grateful.
Mom REALLY enjoys this, and it helps her feel in touch with others even when she’s home. It’s great for all of us!
