People with mental health conditions, cognitive disabilities, acquired brain injuries, and autism spectrum disorders deserve to live as independently as possible. With the right support, and the right technology, they can.
GrandCare is a large touchscreen appliance that provides the individual with daily schedule information, step-by-step assists, and medication reminders. When needed, it is also an easy-to-use secure video chat system for person-to-person remote support. GrandCare can also be equipped with wireless motion, door and temperature sensors that can alert caregivers to situations before they become a problem. Finally, the GrandCare system can use wireless telehealth devices for those managing chronic health conditions at home.
