Israel – The Corona crisis has left everyone forced to live with anxiety and uncertainty for the future. Elder people are most affected by this pandemic attack. Amidst 70 million elderly populations in the US, almost 53% of senior citizens are staying alone and it’s getting hard for them to meet or socialize with their families and dear ones in this COVID 19 chaos. With 2gether, families can listen and share music, relive the moments and record them and watch their grandparents enjoying and singing in real-time.

In this crisis, the elderly need additional support and care like a little child especially when they are prone to feel isolated and living away from their loved ones. Getting exposed to the concerning news about the worsening situation for longer durations and coupled with more restrictions on stepping out can create anxiety and fear in seniors” minds and must be addressed promptly and with care.

2gether enables families to visit them remotely. With its music therapist, available on the journey to reconnect for 24×7 and personalized music, 2gether creates a positive ambiance and helps them keep calm and positive. The app can be downloaded from URL http://2gether.fun/download1.

Suddenly, like a ripple effect, she smiled more, felt better, remembered old stories, and our bond was stronger than ever!! I was the best grandson in the world!! When she passed away, I took some time to process it and look for some silver lining – and founded 2Gether!” adds the founder of the app.
