Caregiver App Detects Changing Behaviors

Innovator Ryan Herd joins Suzanne to talk about how technology is advancing for later life care. The good news is that machine learning lets us start helping caregivers with the appropriate uses of technology. A good example is the video doorbell. Cameras or listening devices inside are inappropriate, but outside is great, it lets them see who’s outside, whether it’s an Amazon delivery guy with a package, grandson coming over, or someone she doesn’t know.


Other solutions are in the pipeline to help caregivers have a bit more peace of mind, to give you some extra time. Let’s say mom routinely vacuums on Wednesdays, but over time we see that she’s stopped doing that, starting to forget taking her pills, or moving around less, forgetting to close doors, perhaps these could be signs of a mobility issue or Alzheimer’s. Even if you see your loved one all the time, they’re never going to tell you that they’re having trouble. That doesn’t happen; they always say they’re fine, they don’t want to burden you.

Caregiver Smart Solutions sets up very simply. You buy the core kit, then scan a QR code that downloads the app to your phone. You plug in the hub, then peel and stick sensors around the house. The hardest thing is what do you call that sensor, grandma’s room, living room, family room? That’s up to you.


Technology helps seniors living in their homes longer. Pay attention to what’s out there. This gives you both freedom. As sons and daughters, sisters and wives, something like this is so in the background, it’s passive, but it’s important.
