You may have known Hopen Family, a solution we developed 4 years ago for my grandmother in a nursing home. She was obviously not on Facebook or Instagram … so it was quite complicate to communicate with her knowing that I lived in New York, my sister in China and my brother in London. At that time, we had set up a system so that she could receive all our photos on her television. She loved it. She was so happy to follow the adventures of her grandchildren in real time.
Two years ago, Nelly Meunier’s grandmother in bed in nursing home felt isolated. Since she was not on social networks, she could not take advantage of what her grandchildren were doing on the other side of the world. Then, Nelly and Pierre tinkered with a box to connect to the television. This small device receives pictures that family members send.
