These products will help seniors stay independent, active and healthy - notifying caregivers in the case of an issue and tracking users’ locations in real time, along with providing fall detection capability and GPS tracking.

Ottawa’s FCi and Bruyère are proud to announce an exciting new private public partnership and the launch of Red Dot Alerts (formerly Bruyère Helpline).

The partnership allows Red Dot Alerts to introduce new independent-living technology while extending its reach through Bruyère’s Helpline Emergency Service. Red Dot Alerts provides 24/7 emergency connection, protection & notification services for seniors who are housebound, mobile but managing chronic illnesses and those dealing with memory care issues.

“These products will help seniors stay independent, active and healthy - notifying caregivers in the case of an issue and tracking users’ locations in real time, along with providing fall detection capability and GPS tracking,” said Steve Burton, Red Dot VP of Business Development.

Red Dot Alerts’ features include:

  • At-Home - emergency response service that works within 300m of the home with monitoring and fall detection capability that uses a landline
  • On-the-Go - mobile solution that provides a fully featured set of options for seniors that works anywhere there is cell coverage.
  • It provides two-way communication to a bilingual monitoring station, fall detection, GPS tracking, automatically notifies family and caregivers and you can create safe zones for those who wander or have dementia
  • A fully-integrated managed service
  • Memory Care Solution – a GPS SafeSole shoe insole that uses GPS tracking technology to create predetermined zones that will notify a caregiver/family if the location is breached (AKA Geofencing).

By deploying Red Dot Alerts’ personal alert solution technology with Bruyère Helpline’s extensive network of clients, Red Dot Alerts will be able to enhance the product through tangible research results, and introduce new, innovative technologies to help the growing aging population and its caregivers. A portion of proceeds from Red Dot Alerts subscription sales will support research and go back into Bruyère.
