Speak2 Family started with our Mom, Dad, and Grandma.
Matt wanted his Mom to hear from her four sons and thirteen grandchildren… everyday! She needed a simple and direct way to communicate, ask for assistance, and conveniently interact with her grandchildren.
Screens and phones are difficult for her. Amazon Alexa and Speak2 Family removes this barrier. The entire family can keep an eye out for her and help her with her requests. It keeps her as the family centerpiece, just like she always was.

Speak2 family users
EVERY DAY SUPPORT
We have a dedicated support team to help set up your account, Amazon Alexa, and guide you through helpful ways to use Speak2 Family.
Ease of use
Learning how to use an Alexa is simple. Seniors embrace Amazon Alexas. It’s easy for them to interact with their voice – hear music, news, sports, and more.
visibility & transparency
Communicate when most convenient for you. It’s possible to provide Mom and Dad the personal attention and care they deserve even when we’re not physically there.
TACTile & Visual problems
Seniors struggle with screens and smartphones. Tapping and swiping is difficult due to lower tactile and visual sensors. It’s easy for them to feel frustrated and vulnerable which leads to disengagement.
