Podcast with Ageinplace.com founder Mark Hager. Mark interviews our CEO Tavis Schriefer about how his own caregiving experience helped spark the idea for teleCalm.
Today, I’m joined by Tavis Schriefer, the co-founder of tech startup teleCalm. Tavis founded teleCalm after spending years as a caregiver for his mother. He learned first-hand the challenge of caring for someone with dementia. This revolutionary new product from teleCalm helps families who are providing care for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. It solves a big communication problem for families: How to keep the phone available for someone with dementia so they can talk with family and friends, but relieve the stress (on them and the family) of sales calls, losing money through continual shopping, elder fraud and more.
