Disclosure:  I am participating in the Verizon Boomer Voices program and have been provided with a device and six months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.

This is my final post as a Verizon Voice for Boomers.   When I started writing for this program, I was hoping to be able to add value to people with dementia and/or those that care for them by highlighting products that ease our day.  During the past several months I’ve reviewed both products and services offered by Verizon and I have to say I was surprised at the variety of technology tools they have to support us.

Here are some of the past posts I wrote:

Technology That Can Help a Caregiver

Today I went to one of the local Verizon stores here in Maplewood, Minnesota and I was amazed at the layout, design and product display.  Verizon’s, Paul Xiong helped me remove the data off the phone without a hitch.  He was so kind and pleasant he made the process easy and explained the philosophy about the new store layout.  It is all about customer service and keeping things simple for the those they serve. The rest of the Verizon staff   was welcoming and helpful as well.  In fact all, even some customers allowed me to take pictures of them in the new store.

I highly recommend you check out the new look and services Verizon has to offer.  Check out the photos below.

Anita and I had our 2nd

 Verizon Party –

Great Prizes!

bags         Well the winter weather kept people away but those that were there loved all the giveaways!  The eco friendly recyclable tote bags, sports water bottles, flash drives, a small flash light on a key ring, a compact mirror & nail file combo and  really cool plug for the cigarette lighter (I’m showing my age now) with a USB port to save you when running low on power and needing a charge!  Plus coupons for great savings and who doesn’t like to save money especially around the holidays!

Everyone loved the cool new Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Verizon sent us to play with and test

This has all the bells and whistle plus is sleek and stylish and easy to use.

We both loved the large screen for our old eyes

Although the size is great for seeing the buttons and apps, it’s a bit large to use as a phone so we prefer hooking it up to Bluetooth system which is safer for driving anyways, and us moms we always need our hands because we are multi-tasking!

“Swipe” is a great feature for writing

The camera is wonderful on this unit.

VWZ_BAdgeA Verizon Boomer Party is fun time

with a lot of free products given away! 

I have the honor of being one of the Boomer Voices of Verizon, which allows me to learn about all the “other” services and products that Verizon has to offer.  I can honestly say I did not have a clue they did anything but sell mobile phones.  Well, I’ve learned a lot, but in no way am a Verizon Rep with all the answers.

So why is it important to Boomers and Caregivers?

Do you want to reduce your worry and stress levels?

Could you use more time?

Would you like to save money?

Do you want to live a healthier life style?

Are you interested in new technology to make you life easier?

Well if you answered YES to any of the above you want to read on.
