At Televeda, we’re building solutions to help keep older adults connected. We’re a social venture combating social isolation.

Social Isolation amongst the elderly demographic is a major predictor of functional decline and death. It is a strain on national productivity and health-care systems. It is important to recognize that both private and public sector support is needed for success in outcomes. Despite our overall healthcare expenditure, there are very limited public policies and studies supporting the treatment of loneliness in the United States.
