We have a strong desire to develop meaningful and useful solutions that have practical applications in healthcare for persons affected by Alzheimer’s, dementia and autism. In developing the CareRing system we have taken great care to ensure we have a reliable system that caregivers and their loved ones at risk to wander can rely on and trust.
We’ve built a system that enables caregivers to monitor the well-being and location of loved ones suffering from cognitive disabilities. Thousands of engineering hours have created a product we believe is the best of its kind in the world today.
The CareRing – Peace of Mind for Caregivers
The CareRing is a wireless wearable device that has been designed and created with the needs of both caregivers and their loved ones in mind. Persons with cognitive disorders are at risk to wander and unknowingly find themselves in dangerous life threatening situations. Caregivers constantly stress and worry that their loved ones may wander and get into trouble. They also worry that they may not be able to quickly locate their loved ones should they go missing. Stories abound relating to persons with Alzheimer’s and dementia or children with autism that have wandered and either suffered or died because they were not rapidly located.
With the CareRing, caregivers are alerted in situations such as elopement, a possible fall, temperature extremes or tampering with the bracelet. The CareRing is pro-active, providing alerts to caregivers when problem situations arise. It is also reactive in emergencies, incorporating leading edge tracking and reporting technologies.
We rapidly locate loved ones at risk to wander
As we developed the CareRing product we received input and advice and shared
information with many organizations, including:
And the many families, caregivers and their loved ones who provided us with testing sites and that
all important grass roots feedback
