SNL recently aired a parody of the Amazon Echo “poking fun” at the elderly population. There was a good deal of criticism voiced about the piece. On a serious note – It’s a shame that Amazon doesn’t see the huge potential of an Echo like device in assisting the elderly. There is a great deal of research describing the benefits of music for those suffering from dementia or mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and Amazon with its ability to produce fantastic products and its vast library of music content is in a unique position to introduce a revolutionary product.
RecallCue is not sitting back and waiting for Amazon- we are hard at work on our own music features for our connected day clock.
