Age-in-place with QuietCare[R].
Roughly 10.5 million people, or one-third of older people, live
alone, and seven million to l0 million adult children care for their
parents from a distance. QuietCare[R] is a life-changing system created
by Living Independently Group, Inc., that allows seniors to live in
their own homes with 24-hour monitoring. Like an engine warning light
that signals potential car trouble, QuietCare automatically sends online
alerts to caregivers when atypical activity patterns occur. Phone calls
are made directly to caregivers in potential emergency situations, such
as a bathroom fall, morning inactivity, or extreme household
temperatures. The system also monitors common patterns of activity, such
as entering or exiting the bedroom and bathroom, meal preparation,
medication handling, and overall activity in the home. For more
