GrandPad, creator of the purpose-built tablet for seniors, announced today that it has partnered with Growing Bolder to enhance and expand the library of engaging content for seniors that is included in the GrandPad tablet. Growing Bolder is an award-winning, multimedia company that is on a mission to redefine aging by delivering content that engages and inspires people over 50 to live exceptional lives.
The GrandPad tablet was designed specifically for people over the age of 75 to accommodate their physical and cognitive capabilities, as well as their lifestyles and interests. GrandPad is currently being used to connect more than 1.3 million people — including seniors, family members, friends, and caregivers — in more than 120 countries worldwide. In addition to providing a safe, secure internet connection that allows elderly seniors to access online information, the GrandPad also features streaming content on a wide variety of subjects and varied formats.
According to Julie Ament Gran, chief growth officer for GrandPad, the integration of Growing Bolder resources supports GrandPad’s mission of improving the lives of seniors everywhere.
“We believe people of all ages and ability levels should have access to technology and information that works for them and that helps them live their best lives,” said Ament Gran. “Our partnership with Growing Bolder is a perfect fit with our mission because it will deliver even more ways to keep seniors connected to the world around them, thereby reducing the dangerous side effects of isolation and loneliness that so many older adults experience.”
According to Ament Gran, Growing Bolder content will be added to the existing GrandPad interface through a remote system upgrade, so users do not have to take any action to enjoy new resources, such as podcasts, memes, posters, video interviews, articles, and tips on everything from travel to wellness to technology to career moves. In the future, GrandPad envisions making Growing Bolder content available through the GrandPad Companion App and integrating Growing Bolder TV into its user interface.
“At Growing Bolder, we want to flip the narrative and help everyone see that it’s never too late to live your best life, and technology like GrandPad helps people do just that,” said Growing Bolder Founder and CEO Marc Middleton. “We’re thrilled about this partnership and the potential to reach GrandPad users around the world with our engaging, life-affirming content.”
