LivHOME Launches LivIndependa, a Tablet-Computer Based Remote Care Service for Seniors

Professional Care Managers Monitor Clients’ Health, Safety Online

Enables Older Adults to Remain Independent in the Comfort of Their Own Homes

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LivHOME, Inc., one of the nation’s largest providers of professionally led at-home care for seniors, today announced the launch of LivIndependa, a tablet-computer based remote care service for older adults.

“The home care industry is booming – and like all growth industries, needs to be supported with enabling technologies that connect care providers, care recipients and families with vital information. LivIndependa is at the forefront of this important trend”

The new service brings together LivHOME’s professionally led approach to care management with the latest tablet-computer based technology, developed by Independa, Inc. It is designed for older adults who require some level of support maintaining health, safety and quality of life in their own homes but do not yet require at-home caregiving. The service effectively extends LivHOME’s ability to provide care to a new generation of seniors.

“We’ve designed LivIndependa for seniors who could benefit from some level of home monitoring but do not yet need a caregiver in their homes. The new service remotely delivers our Care Managers’ expertise and oversight via Independa’s easy-to-use, tablet-computer based system. Quite simply, LivIndependa extends LivHOME care to a whole new generation of seniors,” said Mike Nicholson, LivHOME’s Chief Executive Officer.

Developed in a new partnership with Independa, LivIndependa connects seniors with LivHOME professional Care Managers using Independa’s suite of integrated CloudCare solutions. The LivIndependa service is delivered through a one-touch, easy-to-use, tablet-based touchscreen interface. Features include:

Safety

  • Personal emergency response system
  • Check In calls for Activities of Daily Living
  • Care Manager monitoring

Control

  • Medication reminders
  • Appointment and social reminders

Engagement

  • Email
  • Video chat
  • Games
  • Internet browsing
  • Photos
  • Life Stories

“On the social side, LivIndependa helps older adults enjoy an entire new, easy way to communicate with others. This includes everything from email to photos and video chat. They can also use LivIndependa to record their Life Stories™, to be shared electronically with children and grandchildren,” notes Kian Saneii, Chief Executive Officer of Independa.

When a client signs up for the LivIndependa service, a LivHOME Care Manager works with all involved to customize the system to suit the individual client’s needs. LivHOME Care Managers then provide ongoing support, both in the home and remotely through the Caregiver Web App. For example, if the senior misses an appointment or a scheduled medication, a Care Manager will follow up. LivHOME monitors the system 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

"The home care industry is booming – and like all growth industries, needs to be supported with enabling technologies that connect care providers, care recipients and families with vital information. LivIndependa is at the forefront of this important trend," observes Laurie Orlov, Principal Analyst and Founder of Aging in Place Technology Watch.

LivIndependa will be made available starting in the late Spring of 2012 at LivHOME locations around the country. For more information visit www.LivIndependa.com.
