Our Story

I was very close with my grandfather who  with suffered from age-related chronic conditions that made him homebound. It was a difficult time, and one that made me come to a stark realization: loneliness and social isolation are massive healthcare problems that need to be addressed.

So, we founded Televeda: a social venture working to prevent social isolation in vulnerable communities. Loneliness is a major predictor of functional decline and death, and bringing individuals together can improve a society’s physical, mental, and social health.

Accessibility is one of the most important problems of our times. I cannot stand to see more people affected by something that is easily preventable. Social isolation is now considered a global epidemic, so we must work together to change the future of our world.

Why do people have to be this lonely? What's the point of it all? Millions of people in this world, all of them yearning, looking to others to satisfy them, yet isolating themselves. Why? Was the earth put here just to nourish human loneliness?
