Care Confirmed Launches a New Live Video Service to Help Seniors Remain Living in Their Own Homes
As a greater percentage of the population continues to age, demand for affordable senior care is exploding and for good reason: the cost of retirement homes continues to rise, seniors are living longer and care givers such as children have busy lives.
However, many children are wondering how to provide care and companionship for their parents. Seniors themselves are looking for ways to continue to live independently within their own homes. Now, they can get the services they need to remain in their own home. A new service called Care Confirmed has been launched that uses tablet technology to connect seniors with Care Agents using live video. This exciting new service allows seniors to see their Care Agents.
Care Confirmed was developed by Ted Hodge and Ian Macfarlane who have been involved in Public Health Research and Consumer Technology for over 25 years. This service is an example of using the latest in tablet development to address the real needs of seniors in a very easy and intuitive way, making it easy for seniors to use technology. The new service can be easily ordered online (www.careconfirmed.com) or through the App store.
Care Confirmed, using live Care Agents, offers friendly companion calls and can arrange the services seniors need. Additional services offered by Care Confirmed include Fraud Prevention and Call Assist (for 3 way calling to help through complicated invoicing statements). At the conclusion of each call, an electronic notification is sent to a seniors sponsor (ex. children) to let them know how their loved one is doing.
"On a personal level my own parents were reaching an age where they required more regular support and care. I wanted to develop a service that would provide regular updates when I was travelling and assist them when I couldn't be there. I'm pleased to introduce an affordable service that gives seniors another option to consider when looking at the high costs of retirement living," Ted Hodge CEO, Care Confirmed.
