VideoCare has announced that its innovative touch-screen technology systems are now available through Wynn-Reeth, Inc., an Ohio-based provider of remote monitoring services for both developmentally disabled and elderly individuals. VideoCare offers Wynn-Reeth clients an easy-to-use method for communicating via video calls, as well as receiving calendar reminders, listening to music, and accessing photos and videos from loved ones. VideoCare allows the user to do all of this without the need for a keyboard, a mouse, or any technical skill.

“VideoCare gives those we serve a greater level of independence while also keeping them connected to the rest of their friends, family, and direct-support professionals,” says Jarrod J. Hunt, CEO of Wynn-Reeth. “These users have expressed a high level of satisfaction with their ability to reach loving professionals right when they need it. The additional messaging capabilities of VideoCare allow us to send uplifting messages and videos to brighten their days or assist them with daily reminders.”

Hunt adds that VideoCare complements the remote monitoring that Wynn-Reeth manages in the homes of disabled and elderly individuals and has become, “so valuable to us that it is now a standard piece of equipment with each of our remote monitoring installations.”

“VideoCare has far surpassed any device available to us,” Hunt says. It’s important that we’re able to supply our customers with systems that are very easy to operate, highly reliable, provide multiple functions to assist with their activities of daily living, and provide us with status reports to ensure the equipment is working properly. No other device we’ve seen has compared to VideoCare or has met our rigid standards.”

The VideoCare system is designed for people who are not users of computers, tablets, smart phones, or other tech devices – which accounts for an estimated 72 percent of adults over age 75.

“We are proud to be working with Wynn-Reeth,” says David Trescot, co-founder and CEO of VideoCare. “Wynn-Reeth provides an invaluable service, and our VideoCare technology helps them deliver those services to the people most in need.”

Wynn-Reeth, Inc., based in Green Springs, Ohio, was founded in 1994 with the philosophy that each person they serve is a unique individual and that as a human being, each person is entitled to dignity, respect, consideration, growth, and the opportunity to lead as full and satisfying a life as possible. The company is committed to the promotion of a valued lifestyle for the people they serve by enabling them to participate as fully as possible in the decision-making process about all aspects of their lives. The company recognizes that everyone possesses unique strengths and capabilities, as well as his or her own needs and challenges, and that their approach must be one of consideration for the total person. Each individual has many interwoven needs - physical, medical, social, emotional, and spiritual; and these needs are best served by continually observing each person's right to make his or her own decisions and life choices.
