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.
