Televeda is on a mission to combat social isolation for older adults & vulnerable groups by making socialization more accessible.
We are more interconnected than ever before, yet loneliness is a growing problem, which is a huge strain on economic and healthcare bodies.
Televeda's aim is to be the world’s most inclusive community management platform democratizing socialization to people of all backgrounds, abilities and cognitive levels.
Social isolation is a huge problem for our communities, vulnerable and health-systems. Older Adults need a better way to stay connected, make friends and find a healthy routine.
Easiest way for older adults to make new friends, especially as it gets harder to socialize as we age.
As we get older, it gets harder to do the things that were once easy: making friends, using new technology, staying in touch, trying new things.
Design, operations & processes should be welcoming. The only thing that should be challenging is our vulnerability to grow.
We are support members to build their own tribes. Some play bingo, some do trivia. But all come together to socialize.
We provide a fun & rewarding journey of self-improvement so members can learn new things, see new places & meet new people despite barriers
I was very close with my grandfather who suffered from age-related chronic conditions that made him homebound. It was a difficult time, and one that made me come to a stark realization: loneliness and social isolation are massive healthcare problems that need to be addressed.
So, we founded Televeda: a social venture working to prevent social isolation in vulnerable communities. Loneliness is a major predictor of functional decline and death, and bringing individuals together can improve a society’s physical, mental, and social health.
Accessibility is one of the most important problems of our times. I cannot stand to see more people affected by something that is easily preventable. Social isolation is now considered a global epidemic, so we must work together to change the future of our world.
