Hi we provide free training to people who need jobs and help them become "virtual care companions" for seniors, patients & disable people who need help throughout the day and night. We need volunteers to spread this message to as many seniors as possible who need help. We need the following support:

a) Marketing help (bloggers, social media managers,
b) Provide Support & Explain to Families How Virtual Care Companions can help.
c) Google Adwords (We are google for nonprofit approved and have a $10000 budget to spread this message out. We need volunteers who are experts on google AdWords).
d) We need people who can become Virtual Care Companions and can assist seniors at night and during the day.

Here is what Virtual Care Companions do:

Live Care
Constant Live Engagement throughout the day and night. Your loved ones will always have the comfort of having their own companion with them even if they have another person physically assisting them.

Entertainment & Fun
Companions will professionally entertain your loved ones by reading newspapers & books of their choices, singing and watching TV, playing live trivia games, and simply by talking to them.

Brain Wellness
Companions constantly engage seniors in brain engaging exercises. Companions are trained to perform activities that keep seniors mentally active e.g. by asking them simple daily questions e.g. how was your day, what did you do throughout the day, what did you eat, how was your food etc. Dementia and Alzheimer's disease are quite common as our loved one's age. Virtual aides talk with seniors about their loved ones e.g. please tell me how many sons and daughters you have, how many grandchildren you have, what are their names, what was the last activity you did with them etc. Families provide their updated photos through our online platform and virtual aides show those pictures to seniors and talk about their family members to keep them mentally active and sharp. We try our level best to perform as many daily activities as seniors allow and try to keep them mentally active.

Medication Reminders
Companions help seniors choose good food choices, remind them of taking medications on time, help them on going to sleep and wake up on time, be available for them and monitor their well-being and health.

Physical Wellness
Companions help seniors perform physical exercises and encourage them to be physically active each day e.g. virtual yoga or breathing exercises, walking with care, daily changing into nice and clean dresses each day.

Sleep with Peace
This is a very common issue that seniors do not feel comfortable at night as they feel alone, scared and thus do not feel at peace while sleeping. Some seniors can start walking and can fall at night while some unintentionally and in panic start calling their family members names. We all love our elderly members but it becomes very difficult for families to give company to their seniors at night. Another option is to have a physical aide at home but most families are unable to afford this option. Virtual companions are the best possible solution here as companions are connected to seniors throughout the night through our auto-answer feature on Alexa tablets. Seniors call every 10 to 15 minutes and are able to see if seniors are sleeping or trying to wake up. Companions watch seniors throughout the night when they are trying to sleep so the seniors never feel alone and sleep with peace and comfort. When a senior tries to wake up at night, a virtual aide immediately engages and starts talking which gives a lot of comfort to the senior. Virtual aides are also able to open the lights in the room through Alexa by simply giving verbal commands "Alexa turn the light on or off". Based on our experience, senior gets tired after talking few minutes at night and goes back to sleep. In short, virtual companions are the best option for seniors to sleep at peace at night. Seniors feel relaxed and at comfort, while sleeping, and their families cannot thank our senior aides enough as they are able to sleep too.

Mission Statement

Education, Coaching & Employment Platform Launched to Enable People in Need to Earn Money through Freelancing Education that enables to earn and elevates individuals is the root solution for most problems. A new platform is just launched where people from around the world are connected to volunteer coaches who guide them to success by providing these individuals free education, training & employment help. WeVersity.org’s mission is to empower individuals who are unable to find jobs for any reason by providing them free education, training, and coaching so they can start earning money within few months and live happily. It is important to address the symptoms and it is very encouraging that thousands of charities are trying to focus on those symptoms such as poverty, education, health etc. but WeVersity.org wants to focus on the root cause of all the problems.

Description

Our focus:
- Individuals with prior traditional education who are unable to find jobs for any reason
e.g. overqualified, seniors, no means to find a job, constantly turned down etc.
- People, especially women, who are unable to work outside e.g. moms with kids, taking
care of a sick family member, cannot work outside the home because of cultural
reasons, unable to find jobs because of lack of diversity or acceptance etc.
- Individuals with disabilities who are unable to work from outside their homes.
- People want to start a new life after any addiction recovery, people from shelters,
rehabs etc.
- People living in remote areas or in almost all third world countries where it is extremely
difficult to get traditional jobs because of the scarcity of jobs. More than half the
the population of the world lives in areas where people are unable to find work, either
because there are no jobs or getting a job is extremely difficult as a result of too
many applicants and too few jobs.

At WeVersity.org, we understand the need for a coach who can properly guide individuals by
understanding their backgrounds, strengths and weaknesses and to provide encouragement
during training and without expecting anything in return. Our site goal is to keep everything
free of charge including education, coaching and providing employment help as well.
