who uses grandcare?
Henry is 75 years old and lives independently in Sun City West, Arizona. He’s physically fit – he works out and goes to an exercise class in the community. Henry used to live in Michigan, but after his retirement, he decided to move to a warmer climate. His children and grandchildren live all around the country from California to Boston.
Even though Henry stays healthy and fit, his children can’t help but worry about him.
They decided to install GrandCare, COMO, into his home so they could have that “peace of mind” from a distance. Henry enjoys watching his COMO TV Channel and see all of the updated information that his children and grandchildren have added. His grandchildren often send cell phone pictures on a daily basis.
Since all of the children live out of state, they elected to work with a home-based care organization. A caregiver named Molly comes to Henry’s apartment twice a week to do some light house work, take him on outings and provide him with some companionship. Molly and her organization work directly with Henry, his extended family and GrandCare Systems. If a situation arises, GrandCare alerts Molly directly, so she can respond quickly. Henry’s family loves it, because they can continually check GrandCare and be a part of Henry’s caregiver network from afar. Molly leaves notes right on GrandCare for Henry’s family to see. If Henry wins at bingo or if he has a cold, Henry’s family knows immediately and can feel “in the loop”.
