Essence introduces mobile senior care solution that enables remote monitoring

Essence introduces mobile senior care solution that enables remote monitoring
Essence, a provider of independent-living solutions for the elderly, recently introduced Care@Home Active, which enables seniors to move between their homes and outdoors while maintaining connectivity with their families and TeleCare Service Providers – all with one device.

The solution ensures that when a fall is detected or a panic call is triggered outside the house, the family and service provider will immediately receive the alert and the senior’s location.

Care@Home Active uses Essence’s emergency pendant and fall detector and leverages Bluetooth connectivity to switch from the PERS to the senior’s smartphone while away from home. With studies showing a dramatic increase in use of smartphones among the senior population, Essence’s technology uses that to the seniors’ benefit.

Its use of dual-path selective communications channels in a small, wearable device with a two-year battery life allows the user to freely move in and out of the home without having to remember an extra, bulky device.

The solution brings a superior, cost-effective answer to the problem of protecting people when they leave their homes than what is available in monitored PERS solutions today, Essence said, adding that “This innovative expansion of its aging-in-place suite offers new mobility features that further enhance seniors’ lifestyles and security.”

“Seniors are increasingly demanding the ability to maintain an active, mobile lifestyle,” said Yaniv Amir, President of Essence USA. “They can now do so without worrying about taking an extra device or compromising their safety.”

Care@Home will be officially launched in the U.S. market at the upcoming ESX Electronic Security Expo in Nashville, where dealers and industry insiders will have the opportunity to get a demo of this new solution and see how it easily integrates into their current product offerings.
