If you are one of the millions of Americans who are caring for an elderly parent or grandparent, you know just how difficult it can be to juggle work, family life, and trying to make sure your loved one is taking their medications and keeping their appointments. CarePredict has introduced a new feature called CareVoice that will help make this process a little bit easier.
What is the Tempo wearable?
The Tempo wearable is a wristband that was created by CarePredict to help seniors living independently stay on track with their medications and appointments. The Tempo tracks activities, sleep, moods, and provides real-time alerts if there are any changes in the senior’s routine that could indicate a health issue.
Changes in routines are more serious than just a surface issue. Sometimes they can indicate that something serious is happening. If someone changes their eating habits, it could indicate illness. A change in activity could indicate pain. Being able to get a peek into the daily life and activities of your family can help head off those problems before they become too big to manage.
What is CareVoice?
CareVoice is a new feature on CarePredict’s Tempo wearable for seniors. It allows caregivers to record voice reminders for medications or appointments, and even send voice messages from grandchildren! This feature can be valuable for those suffering from memory loss or early dementia.
How does CareVoice work?
To use the CareVoice feature, simply open the app and select “Record Voice Reminder.” You will then be prompted to enter the date, time, and description of the reminder. After you have finished recording your message, hit “save” and you’re done! To schedule a one-time reminder, select “One Time Reminder” under the “Reminders” tab.
CareVoice also allows family members and caregivers to schedule recurring reminders for medications or appointments. To do this, select “Recurring Reminder” under the “Reminders” tab and enter the date, time, and description of the reminder. You can also choose to have a voice message sent on specific days of the week or month.
How will CareVoice help me?
CareVoice will help caregivers by providing an easy way to record voice reminders for medications or appointments. In addition, CareVoice allows you to send voice messages from grandchildren! This is a great way to keep in touch with your loved ones who may be living far away.
How does CareVoice help care facilities?
Keeping track of a large group of seniors can be a real challenge, especially when the facility is understaffed. And if you ask any nurse in any situation, every facility is always understaffed. Using Tempo, the staff at a facility can keep a constant eye on all of the residents, plus be able to track changes in behavior. This improves the lives of the residents, as well as the family, who don’t have to worry about something being missed.
The addition of CareVoice gives both the caretakers and family the ability to improve the resident’s life. Family can share voice messages with their loved ones, while caregivers can leave reminders for important events.
