Claris Companion provides peace of mind by allowing you to see, at a glance, that your loved one is okay. Our service non-intrusively monitors your family member’s activity, compliance and wellness. These activities of daily living (ADL) are displayed on a color-coded dashboard calendar and as a CareDot™ score. If you want more information about a particular activity, such as a missed medication reminder, simply click on the calendar event to display the Date and Time, Activity, Details, Action, and Scheduled Date and Time (if available).
Speak face-to-face with your loved one using Companion’s video chat. Unlike other popular video chat applications, Claris Companion is private, secure, and incredibly easy to use. Family can use any device to call including our new Android and iPhone/iPad apps. Because your loved one’s Companion tablet is always on, they will always be alerted to an incoming call and only need to touch the large “Answer” button.
Imagine being able to see your loved one at any time and make sure they’re okay.
Send emails and text messages directly to Claris Companion (a private email address and text message number is provided by us). Seniors are notified immediately and messages appear in large easy-to-read text. They can also reply or write new messages using the on-screen keyboard, voice-to-text recognition, or external bluetooth keyboard (not included).
Email (or upload) digital photos to your loved one’s Companion from anywhere. New photos are automatically displayed on the screen and are stored in their personal photo album to enjoy at any time. When not in use, Companion can be set to display photos in slideshow mode, just like a digital picture frame.
Videos can be a powerful way for you to engage your loved one socially as well as provide valuable care information. Anyone can upload videos of any format to Claris Companion from anywhere. New videos are automatically displayed on the screen and are stored in their personal video album to enjoy at any time.
Medication compliance is critical to helping keep seniors safe at home and out of hospital. Claris Companion can be configured to remind seniors when to take their medications or perform other health care related treatments such as glucose testing. Alerts can be sent to family and care providers if reminders are missed.
*New* Remotely configure access to any website so your loved one can get information on local services and keep up-to-date with news from around the world. Each website is accessible on Companion by touching a large button that you can name, examples include the Weather, Shopping, Banking, Games, Google, etc…
*New* Without intruding, get answers to simple questions by scheduling surveys. With the touch of one button, your loved one can respond Yes, Maybe or No to any question you configure. For users with mild dementia, Alzheimer’s or memory loss, questions can be scheduled in advance and repeated daily so you can easily keep track of their well-being and compliance with daily routine.
Claris Companion can automatically generates alerts sent to your cell phone or email if anything is out of the ordinary such as missed medications, treatments, or check-ins. Alerts can be tailored for specific family members or home care workers to follow-up before an adverse event occurs. Alerts are easy way to keep track of your loved one and make sure that they’re okay.
Many seniors recognize that loved ones lead busy lives and don’t want to disturb them even though they wished “you’d call more often”. With a touch of the “Call Me” button an email or text message can be sent to loved ones asking them to call when they get a chance. As a result, isolated seniors can reach out to family and friends without feeling like they’re being intrusive.
In the morning, seniors can press the “check-in” button to send an email or text message to loved ones letting them know they’re okay. If the check-in button is not pressed, after a configurable amount of time an alert will be generated and sent to family or caregivers notifying them that the check-in was missed.
