CareCalls helps those who are forgetting to do important things or are at risk of an accident within their home.
People using CareCalls include:
- Those with poor memory, memory loss or a brain injury.
- Those who are elderly or frail.
- Those with disabilities including Down’s Syndrome, Angelmans, Autism, Aspergers.
- Those with physical disabilities.
- Those with conditions including Anxiety, Dementia, Parkinson’s, Diabetes, Cancer, Agoraphobia, Hoarders.
- Those on dialysis.
- Those recovering after a hospital visit.
CareCalls is very helpful for the earlier stages of Care, where independence is still priority. It is perfect if people:
- Want to be independent but are struggling to maintain this due to poor memory.
- May have a carer family member helping with more demanding tasks, but are able to do certain things themselves. Want to avoid letting the carer do everything.
- Proactively want to take medication / perform given tasks, and are able to do so following a call.
However, Carecalls won’t help if they are:
- Not proactive or lucid enough to take medication following a call.
- Lonely and are in need of human interaction.
