What we do

Famli.net provides organizations serving seniors with Connections, a specialized mobile communications platform that seniors can actually use. Seniors' lives are transformed by interacting comfortably with family and friends. Practically, seniors become partners with your organization to engage with new, useful and profitable services.
Engage Prospective Clients

Engage Prospective Clients

By introducing a prospective client to community communications and interest groups and matching them with compatible peer connections, even before the commencement of services, you can help the client and their loved ones through a difficult transition and avoid lost clients.

Let your Clients Support your Staff

Let your Clients Support your Staff

Connections helps you manage the day to day activities you provide to your current clients and decrease administration costs by keeping your clients informed about events, meals, and their personal schedules.

Empower Your Community

Empower Your Community

Knitting family into the communications of your community, so that they can engage in and support the interests and activities of their loved ones, enriches the whole community and builds lasting ties of client loyalty and reference contacts.

Communication Delivers Value

Building communication between seniors, peers, families, and staff delivers the things that they value most, as well as the things that benefit your business. Everyone wins in the engaged community enabled by Connections.
Senior

Seniors

Seniors often feel isolated and inadequate in the face of today’s online technology. Using the advanced multimedia messaging that Connections makes easy is typically a proud and liberating step that empowers seniors.

Peers

Peers

Surprisingly, helping someone else is one of the most effective ways of engaging seniors to improve their own lives. Connections provides the communications tools that allow peers to enhance their own, and each other’s health and wellbeing.

Family

Families

Families, who typically live in an intensive communication world, usually feel distressed and guilty that their parents are more and more difficult to engage on the other side of the digital divide. With Connections, seniors join their family (and staff) in a shared online communications style.

Staff

Staff

Many IT technologies impose new burdens on staff, requiring training and changed habits. Connections allows staff to continue to use the personal communications styles that are familiar, flexible and time-saving in communicating with seniors and family.

Our Story

Connections comes from a very personal experience shared by our founding team. As our parents aged, their need for increased services and support seemed inevitably coupled with isolation and loss of control. We have committed ourselves to building technology based on the highest quality evidence to empower seniors and their families, and benefit the organizations providing care and services to them.
