How It Started
There's no place like home
For the past 3 years I have been juggling caring for my 85-year-old Mum with full time work and raising my two children as a single parent. Mum is fiercely independent and lives by herself over an hour's drive away, so I can’t easily pop in to help or visit. She has suffered a rapid decline in her wellbeing and quickly required a lot more assistance to remain at home.
I needed to find a way to care for her and maintain my own life responsibilities. I needed a smarter way that allowed me to check-in quickly and regularly, that wasn’t going to break the bank. I researched, and tested technology in my mother’s home to remotely manage and monitor her home.
So now I see Mum in person as well as check in and help her remotely when I’m at home with my children.
I drop in and chat on video, adjust the room temperature when it's too hot or cold, I know when food is burning on the stove to call in help, I also change the channel on the TV or put a movie on to name a few.
