What is GrandCare?

System Comp HR11-13

Industry pioneer GrandCare Systems provides the most trusted and comprehensive caregiving technology on the market. Since 2005, GrandCare has enabled individuals to remain healthier, happier, and more independent.

GrandCare is a complete communication, cognition, and monitoring technology that is designed to keep individuals safe, healthy, happy, and independent at home. Using a series of wireless sensors that monitor activity (door, temperature, motion, bed, etc.) and telewellness (blood pressure, weight), a care partner can automatically be notified if anything is amiss. Family can connect via two way video chat AND send pictures, messages, emails, videos, and other communications to an easy-to-use touch monitor in the loved one’s home. Loved ones need ZERO technical experience.

“GrandCare making a difference for those wanting to live in their homes longer”

A recent news piece from Cold Spring Minnesota shows first hand the difference that GrandCare can make for those who wish to live independently and their families who may live a distance away.

GrandCare monitors health and the taking of medication but some would argue that keeping them in communication with their loved ones is as important…for better emotional health.

One touch to Skype can make a monumental difference.

GrandCare helps give families peace of mind by the way it is able to remotely monitor daily activities with sensors that detect and report both ususal AND unusual activities for families and caregivers…:

  • When pills are taken (or not taken)
  • When a door is opened or not opened (like a fridge)
  • When there is irregular activity (like getting out of bed during the middle of the night and Not getting back in …or Not getting out of a chair)
  • When there is more frequent or less frequent movement than normal (like wandering at night).

GrandCare monitoring costs around $100/month… Leasing options are available.

Note from GrandCare: Pricing varies but can be leased for as low as $99 per month with an upfront installation fee. Final pricing depends on activity and digital health devices deployed.
