It’s a huge honor to have our Theora Care family selected to be in the Thrive Center, alongside other technology leaders in this space that are dedicated to maximizing quality of life for older adults
AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) January 22, 2020
Clairvoyant Networks, LLC, award winning provider of technology for caregiving, announced today that its Theora®️ Care GPS remote monitoring and communications technology was selected for demonstration in the Thrive Center for Innovation in Louisville, Kentucky.
The Thrive Center showcases the latest technology and services for consumers and businesses needing solutions that support an older population. The Center’s goal is to forge collaboration between technology leaders to bring transformative product advancements to market.
The stylish Theora Connect™ wearable for care recipients, used in conjunction with the Theora Link™ smartphone app for family members and caregivers, enables family and professional caregivers to remotely monitor care recipients, enabling older persons to thrive in place longer. Theora Connect unobtrusively tracks non-clinical activity and behavior patterns, monitors GPS locations, sets up Safe Zones with automatic wandering notifications, and provides hands free two-way voice communication—all important aspects of connecting families with their older relatives and friends. All Theora Care solutions are condition-specific for those with memory loss, Alzheimer’s, dementia and Autism. The wearable uses 4G/LTE cellular, with forward compatibility with future cellular networks.
“Our mission at Thrive is to accelerate innovation in aging care. We are bringing the best technology for older adults together, in an immersive experience, and sharing it with the world. People can come here and actually see and touch what is available to support common and specialized problems that we may encounter as we grow older.” remarked Sheri Rose, CEO and Executive Director of Thrive Center. “Clairvoyant Network’s Theora Care line of caregiving and communications solutions is a natural fit for the Center, and we’re excited to have them onboard.”
Reports and data emphasize the need for more technology for an aging population, as people are living longer, and want to continue to enjoy an active lifestyle. In the U.S., 10,000 people will reach retirement age every day for the next two decades. In 2018, the U.S. Census Bureau reported that by 2030, 1 in every 5 residents will be retirement age, and by 2034 there will be more people aged 65 and older than those under the age of 18. Considering we are already in a care crisis situation - not enough caregivers to provide services to those who need it – the need for technology to fill the gap will continue to increase. This is supported by a rising technology adoption rate among adults aged 65 and older.
“It’s a huge honor to have our Theora Care family selected to be in the Thrive Center, alongside other technology leaders in this space that are dedicated to maximizing quality of life for older adults,” commented Stephen Popovich, CEO of Clairvoyant Networks, LLC. “Louisville is corporate headquarters to Signature HealthCARE, Kindred Healthcare and several other industry giants. The Center provides an environment where visitors can learn about what is new and helpful for active aging, while creating a think tank to stimulate discussion and cooperation between all types of care organizations in the area committed to serving the rapidly increasing older adult population.”
