New York, NY (PRWEB) May 30, 2006
QuietCare®, the vital behavior monitoring system for seniors living alone, has launched a redesigned Web site with enhanced information on QuietCare, including a video presentation on how it works, a questionnaire on whether the QuietCare system is right for elder home care, and live online chat for family members to ask questions in real time.
The live chat feature permits caregivers and seniors to ask questions about QuietCare and senior home care online, without having to wait for an e-mailed response. “With live chat, a caregiver or senior can ask questions discreetly, without picking up the phone or even giving their full name,” comments George Boyajian, Living Independently Group’s Executive Vice President of Strategy, Research and Development. “With their permission, we can later contact them at their convenience.”
“With the video presentation, questionnaire and answers to their most frequently asked questions, the Web site presents even more information on how QuietCare works. A family caregiver and senior can view the video together, and the questionnaire helps them determine whether QuietCare will benefit the senior in home care.”
Previously available only to elder care professionals in assisted living, QuietCare's innovative technology protects seniors’ health and can save lives by detecting falls or other emergencies. QuietCare’s wireless activity sensors in the home transmit data 24/7 to patented software that intelligently learns a senior's routine. It reports important changes in daily activities both to QuietCare and online to caregivers, alerting them to possible health problems. In a potential emergency situation, the fast-acting medical alert system notifies trained professionals who immediately contact the senior and caregivers. The QuietCare system also works in conjunction with Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) to provide added emergency protection.
Through powerful, unobtrusive technology, QuietCare’s early detection and early warning system detects potential health risks and falls faster, helps to avoid hospitalizations, protects seniors’ privacy and dignity while giving caregivers peace of mind. QuietCare is a positive alternative to nursing homes, permitting seniors to have greater freedom and independence in their daily lives.
A QuietCare professional is on hand to help determine if QuietCare is the right choice for the interested caregiver and/or senior. Consumers can call toll free 1 (866) 216-4600 for more information on this proven home safety monitoring system.
