Bringing Uniper to those At Risk and At Home
Wednesday, April 29th | 3pm ET
Last spring Uniper-Care technologies partnered with the Network to help advance holocaust survivor care, by offering Holocaust survivors served by 7 NJHSA member agencies with access to remote healthcare and connection to social groups.
Uniper just announced their new cross-platform service that enables individuals in isolation to connect and engage with healthcare professionals, access live and interactive health and wellness programs, and communicate with family and friends. This tech-enabled service can be accessed via any TV, tablet, mobile device, desktop or laptop.
Uniper is offering NJHSA & AJAS member agencies this new service at no cost as long as the strict social distancing orders are in place (or until June 1, 2020). The service has seamless implementation and requires no setup or installations and is distributed via a secured and encrypted email link or text message to the clients.
The Network and The Association of Jewish Aging Services (AJAS) invite you to participate in a webinar to and learn more about this complimentary new NJHSA & AJAS member benefit.
