Viddsee banking on inspiring documentaries to help the elderly

To recognise the unsung heroes of society, Viddsee, a video entertainment platform for short premium content, launches two social documentaries. The new documentaries, which revolve around social enterprises Homage and I’m Soul Inc, were motivated by the ongoing conversations among members of the Viddsee community who share stories of selfless individuals following the launch of DBS Sparks Season Two.

“In documenting the stories of Homage and I’m Soul Inc, two enterprises supported by DBS Foundation, the filmmaker Eileen Chong was careful to maintain a rustic and authentic feel to the videos’ treatment, focusing on how the individuals and their organisations have touched the lives of those in need,” said Derek Tan, Viddsee’s co-founder.

The first documentary focuses on Homage, a social enterprise app that provides expert, affordable and personalised home care and therapy for the elderly covering a wide range of conditions such as dementia and Parkinson’s.

Through the use of technology, Homage founder Gillian Tee aims to transform the lives of the elderly and elevate the traditional care delivery experience, which has largely remained the same for the past 50 years.

The focus on I’m Soul Inc, on the other hand, will highlight the social enterprise’s initiatives on helping seniors and people with disabilities make music easily, with the use of movementled music technology.

“We hope that these two documentaries will be the catalyst for more insightful conversations on our platform, and through them, discover more inspiring stories that we can continue to share,” Tan added.
