InteliCare is an Australian-based initiative, aiming to address the personal, social, economic and geographic challenges faced by our ageing population.
Our goal is to provide a solution that supports an ageing person’s decision to remain living at home for as long as possible and, in doing so, retain their well-deserved dignity and comfort.
Too often, the reason for transitioning to residential care revolves around fear – fear of something unwitnessed being missed, fear of a medical event or fear of a fall. Because of these fearful concerns, family members and individuals alike, consider continuing to live in their own home as too great a risk.
InteliCare, in this instance, aims to minimise, better yet, eliminate, this risk. It is a low-cost, subscription service app for care providers and families that can sense a wide range of in-home activity and therefore can detect unusual occurrences. By detecting whether there may be a problem in real-time, out-of-home caregivers can be alerted immediately and all of those fears can be allayed.
If InteliCare detects a potential incident it also provides an ability for carers or family to “call in” to the home should the resident be unable to answer the phone. This can help assess the need for assistance and provide reassurance that help is on the way.
InteliCare has been designed from the ground up with a focus on security, reliability and flexibility. As technology advances, InteliCare has the ability to adapt and evolve alongside our increasingly tech savvy and connected ageing population without compromising the security or privacy of our digital-family.
