QuietCare® is a proven alternative nursing home and assisted living facility created by Living Independently Group Inc., a national next-generation health and senior care company dedicated to helping elders live at home safely. QuietCare combines with emergency medical alert systems like PERS to provide 24/7 monitoring and alerts for seniors and their caregivers. QuietCare’s patented technology provides freedom and independence to seniors living at home alone. QuietCare also supports independent and assisted living facilities by improving the quality and efficiency of care.
QuietCare works in conjunction with Personal Emergency Response Systems. PERS are effective when an emergency occurs, whereas the QuietCare system tracks vital behaviors and alerts caregivers to significant changes before they become an emergency and also alerts in certain emergencies. That’s why QuietCare recommends families use both QuietCare and PERS.
“Personal Emergency Response Systems are a good start for home safety for seniors, but studies show only half of seniors will wear a PERS pendant, and only half of those wearing the pendant will press it in case of emergency. The QuietCare system is the missing piece for safety of seniors living alone and their caregivers. With no action on the part of the senior, QuietCare provides alerts in case of changes in vital behaviors, as well as automatic alerts 24/7 for some emergencies,” comments George Boyajian, Living Independently Group’s Executive Vice President of Strategy, Research and Development. “That’s what makes having both products so beneficial.”
QuietCare’s innovative senior care product is based on 12 years of extensive research and development to ensure its effectiveness. The National Institute of Health and Aging (NIH) supported QuietCare’s initial development. QuietCare offers the first commercially available solution of its kind to meet the emerging needs of the 11 million seniors who live alone.
QuietCare has the ability to contact caregivers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week about their loved one’s safety and well-being without invading the senior’s privacy.
