Senior Housing Program

What is independent living?

Independent living is intended to provide seniors with the opportunity to have the same recreational, educational and social opportunities that they would ordinarily enjoy, but with the added benefit of personalised care. Independent living can help elderly people to retain their freedom and privacy, but with strategically placed aids for the elderly, they can do so safely and comfortably.

How can technology help provide aids for the elderly?

Different senior housing programs offer different levels of care, however, the GrandCare system helps to level the playing field for providing aids for the elderly. Elderly people benefit from the involvement of family, doctors, and social workers to help them hold onto their independence for longer. These high tech aids for the elderly allow staff to work efficiently and cooperatively, using advanced elderly monitoring sensors and interactive technology. By decreasing costs and increasing efficiency, on-site staff can spend more time with residents providing care and companionship.

How can the GrandCare system benefit independent living facilities?

GrandCare is a revolutionary new aid for the elderly that gives senior living providers the ability to monitor an entire community at a glance. The resident experience can be greatly enhanced by offering more family interaction and socialisation. As this independent living device can be rolled out across an entire facility, it offers new revenue opportunities as the cost of care is driven down by more efficient technology. It also helps to improve staff productivity and can be used to automate many everyday tasks, freeing up staff to spend time with residents or arrange activities.

How does the GrandCare device work?

The large GrandCare touchscreen appliance and optional wireless sensors are placed in resident rooms throughout the community. These can be set up to raise an alert if a door opens at an unusual time, or if a resident fails to get out of bed in the morning. There are also wall-mounted and wearable alarm buttons to help quickly provide assistance if a resident falls down. The touchscreen devices quickly become a hub of community activity for the independent living residents. The screen can be used to video call with family and friends or play games with other independent living residents. The screen also provides remote and reliable aids for the elderly with medication reminders and wellness readings, helping those with chronic conditions to take control of their healthcare.

Using GrandCare’s enterprise dashboard, staff can interact with the entire community at once by pushing reminders, events, and flyers to all residents all with GrandCare’s simple one touch system. Family members can video chat, share photos and videos, add calendar appointments, exchange messages, and be involved with their loved ones every day. Even better, the residents don’t need to learn anything new to benefit from the interaction. The GrandCare system is one of the easiest aids for the elderly to learn how to use and the interface is highly intuitive.
