GrandCare has a variety of virtual caregiving programs focused on every level of care, from private home to home health care to assisted living to rehab to end of life.
This new GrandCare "better independent living" strategic initiative will focus on folks who live in a community with little to no hands-on services. GrandCare will offer communities a significant competitive advantage, enhanced customer and family satisfaction, improved resident retention, and better staff to resident/family communications.
GrandCare's large, intuitive touchscreen will easily connect residents with their families with simple features like one-touch video chat and family photo sharing. Additional features include community activity schedules, dining room menu options, event flyers, reminders, emergency broadcasting, brain games, videos, weather/news and more. Optional activity and telehealth monitoring sensors can be added for any resident.
"Today's families expect highly connected and state-of-the-art care communities for their loved ones," said GrandCare Systems Founder and CEO, Charles Hillman. "GrandCare can empower independent residents to feel even more independence while connecting them to community events and their family members–without any technology experience."
The GrandCare solution also creates new revenue streams from on-demand concierge services which can be ordered right from the resident's touchscreen. It's easy to set up a variety of services from transportation to salon services to nurse consultations. All or a portion of the fee goes to the community, based on whether they offer the services in-house or outsource them.
Hillman thinks the idea of increased revenue channels is one that the industry can really respond to. "Who doesn't want to increase revenue?" he added.
GrandCare is also delighted to share their other LeadingAge announcement–their integration with wireless nurse call provider, RCare. Nurse call alerts can now be generated from GrandCare's motion, activity or telehealth sensors.
GrandCare will be exhibiting at LeadingAge in Indianapolis, October 31-Nov 2nd in booth 2044. The company will also be hosting an after-hours "Mix N Mingle" event at the nearby Champions Bar & Grill. The event takes place Monday, October 31st from 7 PM to 9 PM. Registration is free and includes one free drink. The event is co-sponsored by RCare and marketing firm Laura Mitchell Consulting.
