Video Calling

Speak face-to-face to your loved ones at any time from any computer, smartphone or tablet. It’s private, completely secure and very easy to use. Using large buttons, the older person can answer and end the call without any fuss.

Medication Reminder

Regular medication is of vital importance to the health and wellbeing of older people. Ethel can be configured to send medication reminders or perform other health care related treatments. If these actions are missed, alerts are automatically sent to family and carers.


Using the ‘Check-in’ button each morning, the elderly can let family and carers know everything is OK at key times of the day i.e. morning and evening. If the check-in button has not been pressed, Ethel can send an alert after a specified period of time to nominated individuals.

Call Me Requests

With one touch, loved ones can request someone gives them a call. This allows those who may be feeling isolated to make contact with others without feeling they are being too intrusive.

Automated Alerts

Ethel can automatically send free SMS and/or email alerts to carers if anything seems irregular such as missed medications or check-ins. These alerts can also be tailored for specific people who may have dedicated care responsibilities.

Email & Text Messaging

Email and text messages sent to Ethel appear instantly on the screen in large easy-to-read text. Using the large on-screen keyboard and buttons, the elderly person can reply or write new messages at any time

Wellness Survey

Daily surveys can help establish how the older person is feeling and track trends in wellbeing. With the touch of a button family and carers can be made aware of the older persons general health i.e. better/same/worse.


Share precious memories. Photos automatically appear on screen and are stored in an album to enjoy at any time. When idle, Ethel can display these photos in a slideshow.


Anyone can upload videos of any format to Ethel from anywhere, allowing your loved ones to feel part of your life experiences. New videos are automatically displayed on the screen and stored in an album for replay at any time.

Web Browsing

Use Ethel to browse the web, providing access to specific websites which may be of interest, such as local news and hobbies.


Use Ethel to set up and send reminders to your loved ones about important calendar events such as appointments, visits and family events.

Exercise Video

Ethel offers one touch access to exercise videos specifically for older people to help with mobility and general wellbeing.

Stream Events

There may come a point when the older person may become unable to be part of events or special occasions away from their home, such as church services. Ethel can receive live video or audio streaming of church services, meetings and special occasions (where churches have that facility).

Q&A Survey
