ActiveCare, Inc., (www.activecare.com) is the service leader in care for the elderly, disabled or chronically ill providing deserved freedom while allowing members to remain living independently longer. The ActiveCare solution incorporates sensor technologies that allows a member to be constantly monitored in their own home and on the go. Inside the member's home, ActiveCare installs sensors that allows ActiveCare's 24/7 CareCenter™ to monitor their movements and health conditions. When the CareCenter™ detects any type of anomaly it can immediately contact the member through a body worn watch device, the ActiveWatch™ or through the ActivePortal™, a video portal located in the senior's home. This video portal allows live video interaction between the member and the CareSpecialist™ – providing a personal and bonding experience. The CareCenter™ can remotely monitor the member's eating habits with sensors on the stove, refrigerator and cabinets. The CareSpecialist™ can also monitor the medications the senior is taking and insure that they are taking the right medications at the right time – all through ActiveCare's sensor technologies. In addition, the CareCenter can track vital signs such as heart rate, blood pressure, weight and glucose levels. It can also monitor how long the member has been in bed or in a chair and can assist in turning on and off lights and locking or unlocking doors.
When the members are on the go away from their home, they can be tracked through ActiveCare's GPS technology. Through the ActiveWatch™ or ActiveOne+™ PAL members can instantly contact a CareSpecialist™ with the press of a button or automatically when a fall occurs.
