Program Description


"What distinguishes PawPawMail from other programs is that it is a managed system aimed at caregivers as well as seniors. 'PawPawMail is built entirely around the idea of two users,' Mr. Hughes said in a recent e-mail message. 'The senior user who actually uses the e-mail account, and the caretaker/manager who helps set the senior up, gets his or her address book going, and screens mail from unknown sources to prevent contact from all the ridiculous number of scams that are directed at seniors.' "

"Paw Paw Mail" provides a simple interface that relies less on traditional folders and long email addresses and more on visuals such as photographs of the addressee and large easy to view icons. The system is useful for seniors who may have limited vision.

One simple to use feature of the program is how photographs are supported by the system. Instead of a photograph being received as an attachment to be opened, seniors can have photos go directly into the photographs icon.

"Paw Paw Mail" allows seniors to connect with adult children, grandchildren, other family members and friends. Users may use it as a tool to create new senior social networking connections and social activities.

"Paw Paw Mail" also has a feature which aims to protect seniors against spam, scams, and e-mails from strangers.

"Paw Paw Mail" costs approximately $5 per month and seniors can log onto their email directly from the Paw Paw Mail website. The program offers a free 10 day trial. The "Paw Paw Mail" website also offers a virtual tour of the program.
