Caring for Seniors Remotely During COVID-19

New York Times Features GrandCare Systems in Recent Article

Since the Coronavirus began sweeping through the United States, causing massive lock-downs beginning in March 2020, we’ve heard from many people looking for solutions to remotely monitor the health and safety of elderly loved ones. Since the virus puts the elderly at most risk, caregivers have been forced to choose between making regular check-in visits or foregoing the visit and wondering how their loved one is doing. 

Remote monitoring offers an excellent solution, allowing vital statistics like oxygen levels, blood pressure, heart rate, weight and much more to be monitored with easy-to-use in-home devices that seniors can use every day. Data is uploaded via an in-home internet connection, so loved ones and caregivers can receive automatic notifications if something may be wrong, or log-in anytime to check on a senior’s vitals and stats.

As an authorized retailer for GrandCare Systems, we’re well aware of the benefits that remote monitoring technology can offer to our customers. Recently, the New York Times also featured GrandCare Systems in an article titled Did Mom Take Her Medicine? Keeping an Eye on Elders in Quarantine. The article follows the story of Norman Potter, who uses GrandCare to remotely monitor his mother, Dorothy’s health. “The monitoring allows me a sense of peace that she is up and starting her day,” he shares.
