Talking Dog for Senior Care

GeriJoy’s Talking Dog for Senior Care is Joined by Talking Cat Companion
GeriJoy announced today that its virtual talking dog companion for the elderly is now also available as a cat, and that as a promotion until August 8, 2013, all new subscribers who select the cat companion will receive an additional free month of service. GeriJoy’s virtual talking companions provide senior
companion care services through 24/7 companionship, intelligent conversation facilitated by trained staff, and connection to family through photos and updates.

The GeriJoy Companion for senior care is now available as a cat, in addition to the original dog. We are excited to announce the availability of the GeriJoy Companion as an adorable kitten, by popular request.

Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) July 31, 2013
GeriJoy announced that their virtual senior companion now comes in two forms: a talking dog and a talking cat. According to the Humane Society of the US, 39% of American households own at least one cat, and there are over 86 million cats owned in the US compared to 78 million dogs.

GeriJoy CEO Victor Wang commented, “We are excited to announce the availability of the GeriJoy Companion as an adorable kitten, by popular request. This additional choice will help foster stronger connections with many seniors and help to expand our market reach to include the millions of cat-lovers out there.”

The GeriJoy Companion is able to provide the benefits of pet therapy without the physical drawbacks of live animals. The new cat companion will share all of the original dog companion’s benefits and capabilities, including 24-hour supervision from trained care staff, intelligent conversation, and compassionate interactions. GeriJoy’s virtual companions for the elderly have been observed to benefit mental and emotional health, even mitigating depression and Alzheimer’s symptoms. Family members are able to see how their loved ones are doing by reading the GeriJoy Companion’s diary, which GeriJoy’s trained support staff post online to the secure Family Portal.

New GeriJoy customers who sign up at http://www.GeriJoy.com/subscribe can choose from a service-only subscription plan, or one that also includes the tablet hardware on which the GeriJoy Companion lives. Either way, customers may choose between the dog or the cat, and new customers who choose the cat prior to August 8, 2013 will receive a promotional reimbursement of their first month’s subscription dues, effectively extending the ordinary free trial period.

There are phone applications that are being published about talking animals, or portable pets in your mobile. It's kind of a game where you need to keep an eye for your virtual pet and make sure that he is healthy and happy. It's kind of entertaining for kids, because they really love games like this. I have already seen something like your application. I suggest that you make your animation more cute or not pixilated because some applications are. I hope my nephew will like this if she tries this. Thank you so much!

It's really amazing how far technology has helped people of all ages. Developing applications that can treat and help the senior citizen to have a better way of life is a very intelligent and wonderful idea. I know that in our time today old people aren't given too much attention and it's very nice to know that there are still those who are concerned about their sake. I am pretty sure that in a few years from now there will be more technologies that can help us to treat those who are in need.
