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 Creates A Care Triangle
Between Seniors, Families And Caregivers

FOR THE SENIOR: GrandCare consists of a central touchscreen unit placed in the resident’s home. The system provides access to news, weather, pictures, email, reminders and more on the touchscreen monitor. The resident can also play games, search the Internet, listen to music and other interactive activities. No interaction by the senior is required.

FOR THE FAMILY: Family members can stay in contact with their loved-one through GC-Manage, a web-based system supported by any Internet browser. They can send messages and photos to the GrandCare unit, review the safety and wellness of their loved-one, and communicate with the caregivers.

FOR THE CAREGIVER: The GrandCare unit communicates with a wide range of wireless devices to monitor activities of daily living and wellness. Caregivers can access the system using GC-Manage to assess the wellness and safety of the resident. GrandCare can also send an email, text message or phone call if something is amiss or an alert occurs.

FOR THE DEALER: GrandCare is not a one-time project, but establishes a long-term relationship with the senior, family and caregivers. Dealers benefit from design services, product sales, installations, residuals from the monthly service fee and future expansions of the GrandCare system as a family’s needs change.
