I hope by offering HIBOU for free we can help our most vulnerable people feel safe and connected. If we can prevent one death or avoid a single hospitalization, we think it is worth it.

HIBOU, a subsidiary of Tsunami, a world leader in people health and safety monitoring solutions, today announced HIBOU automated daily wellness calls for seniors will be free during the Covid-19 crisis. With HIBOU, seniors receive a daily, automated phone call that will prompt them to indicate if they are well or if they need help; if a senior misses a Wellness check, friends or family are notified, helping to keep loved-ones safe and connected during these times of self-isolation and social distancing.

Family members or seniors anywhere in North America can sign up at http://www.hellohibou.com. Once registered, automated calling will start immediately.

“We know many people looking for ways to support their family, especially those at higher risk as they struggle with the virus”, said Heather Eastman Founder of HIBOU. “I hope by offering HIBOU for free we can help our most vulnerable people feel safe and connected.
