Feb 13, 2014 • I got a CAR!!!  Silvercare has been such a success for my mom and I that we got me a brand me wheelchair accessible car!  It has a swivel wheelchair lift with auto lockdown so I can secure my chair without help and just drive!  It also has autoguide hand controls so it doesn’t bother my arthritis to drive, Voiceprint activated secure entry, rear and side cameras, Bluetooth 5.0, navigation with autopilot cruise control, and so on!  I am so excited.  This is truly freedom for me!

Oh and of course I got the car in Silver! 😀

Speaking of Silver… Silvercare has really spread!  The word is out and we are getting calls from all over the country!  We are now in several dozen locations all over the country that manage specific regions.

And people are loving the technology!  I think Silvercare Smarthouses might be the new fad.  Who would have though that people would want to broadcast video of themselves doing nothing in their houses all day just for the fun of it?  I never thought that a trend would emerge from our attempt to care for people remotely.  The emails we’ve been getting about how Silvercare has changed people’s lives for the better are amazing!  That kids are able to watch Grandma from an interface over their desk after school from the other side of the country until Mom gets home to take over has allowed people to continue to live independently for so much longer!

It’s truly inspiring to hear the success stories of disabled young adults in particular.  With our automated remote med dispension and constant monitoring for problems young adults are able to live independent lives when they never could before especially those with developmental disabilities.

I could go on and on, but I’m off to a meeting with Google.  Can you believe it?!  I’ll check in again soon!

Feb 11, 2010 • Hi, Hannah Silver here!  Like everyone in town, I want to go and show my respects to Bev at the funeral, but as of now I can’t go because I physically can’t get there.  As some of you know by now, I’ve been stuck rolling in a wheelchair since my Lupus sent my arthritis off the deep end.  I still haven’t found any transportation around town when it’s too far to go by chair.  The cemetery is just too far.  And my cute little car that seemed like such a great idea on my 16th birthday is just way too small to fit my wheelchair even if you disassemble the whole darn thing.

Anyway, Etta suggested I post here about it since everyone in town is reading this anyway and see if anyone has a big van or something who would be willing to take me (and my wheelchair) to the funeral.  So if anyone is willing and able, please leave an note for me in the comments!
