We asked our customers what changed for the better since switching to Lumin. Here’s what some of them had to say.
"Lumin is just marvellous! It keeps me connected with the outside world!"
“I cannot thank you, and the Lumin team, enough for the joy that the Lumin brought Mum – every day she listened to her favourite radio stations, was able to do daily weather updates and see what was happening outside her little room and receive photos and phone call from her family.
It was the one thing that kept her up to date with the things she enjoyed and filled some of the very lonely, long hours she endured.”
Lou Forsythe, loving daughter and family carer
“My 100 year old mother loves Lumin!”
Anke Cartwright, Lumin Supporter
“My 95-year-old Mother who had never communicated by mobile phone or used a computer was a very reluctant initial user of The Lumin but we have been astounded how quickly she was won over and interacts effortlessly.”
Gaye McDonnell, Lumin Supporter
“My Dad has been using the Lumin tablet for a couple of weeks and the medication reminder is by far his and my Mum’s favorite app. He now has another way of remembering to take his medication and this has taken the burden off of my Mum. He’s gaining confidence in its use and we have added many apps to keep his mind busy. He loves it.”
Leanne Shane, Lumin Supporter
“It helps my mother keep in touch with her interstate family and see them in their surroundings - effectively taking her outside of her 4 walls.”
Sarah Karrasch, Lumin Supporter
“My 80+ yr old mum finds it easy to use. I can send messages to her and video her. Tech support is great.”
Daryll Pye, Lumin Supporter
“I live almost 3.5 hours away from my 86 YO ailing mum & I'm her only family! So Lumin has been a godsend for me & mum. I've recently just been reunited with her after not knowing where she had suddenly shifted to. So Lumin has been amazing for us both! She's had to use the ALERT button a few times unfortunately due to heart attacks. But if it wasn't for Lumin, she would not be here! So I'm very grateful. Even more than you can ever imagine.
Keep up the amazing work!”
Juanita Jessie Providence, Lumin Supporter
“Lumin has been a marvelous thing to have. I love the games on it. I’m 87 and don’t know much about electronics but Lumin has been working great for me. On the first of December, one of my granddaughters got married at Canberra, and I couldn’t make it because of one of my ailments, you see. I couldn’t travel. I had the perfect view of the wedding through Lumin. It was beautiful.”
Robert Seal, Lumin Supporter
“I visited my client yesterday afternoon and the screen is a huge success now it's hooked up. He has connected with his grandchildren and nieces and been able to send photos and messages. Scott told me he particularly likes the NZ news that comes through and has started teaching himself to play checkers! Great news!”
Carly Lindsay, Lumin Supporter
“Dad actually sits there with the TV turned off looking at photos of my newborn son.”
Cameron, Lumin Supporter
“Alice uses Lumin to maintain contact with her two sons, as she can no longer use a conventional telephone.”
Ken supports Alice, who has early onset dementia
“Lumin has opened up Tony’s ability to easily communicate with family and friends that prior to the Lumin was not available.”
David, installed Lumin for his brother Tony
“It’s a great concept. In over 40 years in Aged Care practice, I have not seen a device that could be so useful for carers to be involved in caring for a client (Mum or Dad) from their own home.”
Dr. Janet van Leerdam MBChB MRCGPl
Oh, we’re also humans, just like you. Meet the team behind Lumin
We understand what you’re going through. Isolation and loneliness is the proven trigger for ‘all the nasty stuff’ like early onset of chronic diseases like Dementia or Alzheimer’s. We get it because we also have friends and family members that are affected by these diseases and whose spirits shine through but are slowly slipping away, one memory at a time. That’s why Lumin is on a mission to help people like you that are going through arguably the most difficult experience of their lives. We’re in this together.
