Claris Healthcare and Breathing Spaces Partner to Provide Intuitive Tablet Technology to Address the Critical Issue of Social Isolation with Older Seniors

VANCOUVER, British Columbia and SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 17, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Claris and Breathing Spaces have formed a partnership to ensure that caregivers have every possible resource available to remain strong and healthy throughout the caregiving journey. Claris Companion, used by thousands of seniors across North America, provides a simple tablet-computer with touch buttons for video calling, news, weather, games, web browsing, family picture albums and other related content to keep seniors engaged, informed, and connected. Claris' Companion comes ready to use right out of the box. Seniors can get up and running on the Internet without onsite installation or training.

"One of the most important and rewarding things we can do in life is to provide care for our parents and others in their golden years. However, this can often become a great challenge and burden on the caregiver", said Geof Auchinleck, CEO at Claris Healthcare. "It's an honor and a privilege to work with Breathing Spaces and be a part of such a noble and impactful community to provide family caregivers with the best possible support at such an important time in their life."

Founded in 2012, Claris Healthcare developed the first remote monitoring solution designed specifically for seniors and their families to stay connected and engaged. With 56 million Americans over the age of 65, senior care is an ever-growing challenge. Whether aging in place or residing in senior facilities, social isolation is one of the primary concerns for caregivers. Because of COVID-19, the challenge of senior isolation is far greater than ever imagined.

Breathing Spaces, based in Sunnyvale CA, offers support and resources specifically for family caregivers. Through expert opinions, published research and specialized product offerings, Breathing Spaces has become a valuable source of support for the 43 million caregivers in the US. Breathing Spaces represents an online and in-person connected community of family caregivers that share common goals and challenges as it relates to caring for their loved ones. Understanding the stress involved in the caregiver relationship, Breathing Spaces provides a unique environment where like-minded people can connect with others that know what they are going through, share, learn and find the tools they need to remain strong under very exhausting and sometimes overwhelming circumstances.

"Sometimes you simply need a space to catch your breath", said Cyndi Mariner, Founder and CEO of Breathing Spaces. "I have been a caregiver myself and I know the importance of information, inspiration and support. I believe that the Claris Companion platform offers family caregivers the peace of mind that their loved ones are a simple press of a button away", continued Ms. Mariner.
