Step 1

The AurisBuddie has a meeting with you, usually by phone. During this we sort out the administrative set-up involving joining Amazon, using the Alexa App and the setup of your loved one's new Alexa device. 


Step 2

We visit the home of your loved one and Set Up the Alexa. During the visit the AurisBuddie will give a one-on-one tutorial to get your relative up to speed with talking to Alexa. During this visit we get you to video call us from your smartphone to experience what video calling is like.  We will leave a reminder 'cue' card as a prompt for your parent or grandparent after we have gone.


From this day for a period of six months both you and your loved one will have an office hours hotline. Call us if you get stuck, or if you have a question?


Step 3


Your AurisBuddie will arrange a second visit, two weeks from the first, to see how they are doing and answer any questions they and you may have. During this session they will demonstrate more useful things, specific to your loved one, that can be done with Alexa.

Here's what your loved one can do with Alexa
