Safe N Sound At Home introduces GrandCare Systems

With many families living far apart it is realistic and understandable that seniors are uprooted from their homes and forced to move closer to younger family members. Safe And Sound At Home has a solution that can be both cost effective and provide family “peace of mind” through GrandCare Systems.

With an aging Boomer population, avoiding the high cost of care for the aging is a frequent conversation today. Currently the average cost for Assisted Living is between $2500 and $3500 per month, Nursing Home care can range from $80 to $300 a day. With so many families living far apart it is realistic and understandable that senior family members are uprooted from their homes and forced to move closer to younger family members. Safe And Sound At Home has a solution that can be both cost effective and provide family “peace of mind” through GrandCare Systems.

GrandCare is a Communication, Socialization, Wellness and Safety system that allows seniors to age in place, and stay in their homes longer.  The GrandCare System uses web based technology that lets seniors and their families  keep in contact.  Easily send web based e mail, video, photographs, and voice and video calls. The senior needs no tech knowledge as the customized, interactive system uses a simple touchpad that is similar to an ATM.

Activity of Daily Living and Safety is monitored using wireless sensors that are used for both motion and lighting controls. Sensors are placed on doors, windows, refrigerators, pill boxes, chairs, and even the senior’s bed. The sensors are unobtrusive and require nothing of the senior other than to live life normally with no change to daily routine.  The GrandCare System is rule based and looking for something out of the normal routine.

Wellness is remotely monitored. Daily blood pressure may be taken by the senior using a Bluetooth enabled blood pressure cuff they place on their arm and readings are taken with the touch of  one button. The weight scale is also Bluetooth and is used just as any standard bathroom scale. The readings from the devices are sent to the GrandCare System and are easily reviewed by the family or the care giving partner. If the senior suffers from chronic disease such as high blood pressure or heart failure, easy to read daily, weekly, and monthly reports are available for print by the care partner and can be taken along on the next visit to the doctor.
