Have you heard about Telikin?
A client asked me this recently so I looked in to it and I am impressed! Telikin is a super easy to use touch screen computer. It will be a great solution for many of my clients and I thought you might be interested in it for yourself or for someone you love.
My Mother saw it in the AARP magazine a few years ago and I didn’t pay much attention because she already knew a little bit about how to use a PC laptop and I didn’t think a Telikin would be the best choice for the price. Now that she is 93 and having some vision problems, I think the Telikin would be better for her. Even though she is my “poster child” for what “tech resistant” elders can do, (she has hearing aids that connect to her TV and iPod with bluetooth) I think she would enjoy her computer more and use it more if she had a Telikin. They have easy payment plans so I just may be getting her one soon.
This week, I had an online meeting with Nancy Allegrezza, Director of Sales and wife of the inventor of Telikin. Nancy is also a nurse, and her passion for helping seniors and providing excellent customer service is truly inspiring.
Nancy and her husband got involved because they had aging parents with disabilities, and wanted to help them stay connected via email, photos and video chat. There weren’t any easy computer solutions. The Telikin computer, its apps and customer service are all designed to make everything fun and easy.
In my experience with clients to date, the best solution has been the iPad. However, the screen is very small and the the apps have commands that are hard to see and sometimes hard to find. I keep wondering why someone doesn’t come up with a better solution.
Telikin may be the answer. Everything is in large letters and the navigation buttons are clearly visible and well labeled. There is nothing to open or close, you just touch the big buttons on the screen and you are where you want to be! The price is just about right, too – $699 isn’t a lot to pay vs. a $599 for a Mac Mini without a monitor.
You can try a Telikin for two months and get your money back if you don’t like it. They provide VIP tech support (including remote access) to ensure that you have a good experience right from the beginning. And it has a “tech buddie” feature so a trusted friend or relative, anywhere, can access your computer remotely and help whenever you want.
I’d love to know what you think about it. Do you think you might be interested in getting one? Do you know someone who might like one?

Looking forward to hearing from you!
