What Is Virtual Senior Care?

Virtual care solutions use smart technology to provide virtual check-ins and to monitor and enhance a senior’s well-being. These solutions can be an effective way to extend care capabilities when a family member or professional CAREGiver cannot be present in the senior’s home. Virtual care solutions can provide extra peace of mind. They can be used before a senior is ready for in-home care or as a supplement to professional caregiving services.

What Is Integrated Senior Care?

Integrated care combines the conveniences and connectivity of today's technology (designed with seniors in mind) with the personal touch of an experienced in-home senior CAREGiver. Together, these two services provide a comprehensive approach to keep your senior loved one engaged and safe at home.

Top 5 Needs That In-Home Senior Care Can Fill

  • Transportation and errands: Your senior loved one can no longer drive around Appleton, WI and has given the car to a grandson who lives a distance away. Help from relatives is sporadic. A local grocer delivers items on a list that is called in. Formerly frequent walks in the park a half-block away are now out of the question.
  • Light housekeeping: Mom and dad have failing eyesight, which doesn't allow them to see messes throughout the house. Your parents are too tired to use the vacuum cleaner more than a couple times per month. 
  • Meal preparation: Your aging parent, formerly an excellent cook, can no longer be trusted with the gas stove and, as a result is microwaving TV dinners. Meals on Wheels doesn’t appeal to mom or dad most of the time, so they feed many of the meals to the feral cats on the front porch.
  • Medication reminders: Luckily, there are few prescriptions. but mom needs a special vitamin to try to preserving the faltering vision in her “good eye.” Sometimes, she forgets to take them..
  • Home care companionship: Dad is often alone, spending more time watching TV in solitude. You worry about him and if he is keeping busy and staying safe.
