Buddy4Seniors strives to promote the integration of Voice enabled technology's benefits in senior citizens' lives. The organization works to reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation among senior citizens. We utilize the capabilities of voice-activated technology to foster meaningful connections between senior citizens and digital devices that help improve their daily lifestyles.
