Innovator Ryan Herd joins Suzanne to talk about providing hope, dignity and a sense of wellness for aging seniors living alone in their homes.
You’re doing your best, but you can’t be there all the time to check on your aging loved one. Ryan’s grandmother is in her 90s and lives alone. He developed a non-invasive caregiving app called Caregiver Smart Solutions.
Sensors about the size of a quarter are placed discreetly around the home. They’re collecting data points, learning about how your loved one moves around during the day. If mom gets up regularly at 6:30 every day, you’d want to know if she was up all night and didn’t get up that morning. Maybe she was just binge-watching Netflix, but you’d just want to know if she’d had a medical emergency. It’s a passive, habit-based system. If you can get mom to wear the “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” device, that’s great. Often you can’t. With the sensor system, there are emergency buttons around the house, but if she falls while walking to the bathroom, and can’t get to an alert button, sensors can figure out that mom didn’t make it to the bathroom and can alert you.
