The companion is safer and easier for seniors to use than an iPad, tablets or computers because it was designed specifically for seniors. It provides them with exactly what they need to connect with family and manage their own care. All information is pushed to the device and automatically displayed with large buttons and text, so there’s no need to launch apps to see important notifications. Seniors cannot get ‘lost’ by pressing buttons, mistakenly changing settings or having confusing updates and warning messages appear. The device can be configured remotely through the secure website avoiding frustrating technical support calls. Additionally, text message alerts can be sent to family members in case of missed medication reminders, check-ins and wellness surveys.For even more reasons why Companion is different, please see our Why Companion? page.
