Grandcare Is a System for Caregivers and Family Members at CES

Grandcare logoMany families include those who are elderly, homebound or otherwise in need of constant contact with others due to health reasons. And technology is always evolving to help meet this need. Grandcare showed off its touchscreen-based system at CES 2015. The Grandcare system is powerful and extensive but still easy to use.

Jamie had a chat with Laura Mitchell, Grandcare’s Chief Marketing Officer. Laura demonstrated some functions of the Grandcare system and she explained how the system can be configured down to one button, or expanded to include more features, depending on users’ needs.

The base Grandcare terminal can be purchased for $699 from retailers such as Amazon. There’s also a $49 monthly fee in order to keep all of Grandcare’s services active.

GrandCare Systems

GrandCare System GrandCare Systems is a comprehensive software system that can be used to help caregiver monitor their love ones from a distant. It was originally created to help maintain social contact, through chats, email, pictures, video, games, reminders and things like local weather and news. Overtime it was discovered that it could also be used to monitor health conditions, such as glucose level, blood pressure, and other medical information. It can capture the information on site and in almost real-time. It does this through add ons such as a device that indicates when a pill-box has been open or when a scale has been used. These add ons are connected to the main device wirelessly. Alerts can be sent to the caregiver either through email or text message based on the need of the patient.

The GrandCare Systems is software based and it is built into a specific device at the present time. This is something they hope to change in the future so that the software can be used on various devices. The caregiver may access the alerts and information on any device. The base cost for the device and software is $600. There is an additional cost based on the number of add ons. There is also a monthly fee to for text messages and email to the caregiver.

If you have an elderly parent living alone, this can help you give you peace of mind.  Knowing that you can still care for them even if you are not there.
