What happens if...
Mom falls

If you are a caregiver or know someone who is, then you are aware of fall risks among older adults. According to the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/injury/features/older-adult-falls/index.html), "Every second of every day, an older adult (age 65+) suffers a fall in the U.S. - making falls the leading cause of injury and injury death in this age group." With the majority of older adults choosing to stay at home, fall detection devices such as OneCare's CareWatch should be on the wrist of every older adult to alert the caregiver in the event of a fall. Let me explain how it works, as I have experienced it first hand.

My mom is 85 years young. She lives independently in her home of 28 years, in Wisconsin, and I live in Spain. Mom wears the CareWatch and I have the OneCare Companion app on my iPhone - in fact, both my siblings also have the app on their smartphones. At any given moment, I am able to see her whereabouts, heart rate, sleep time, location, and how many steps she takes each day. Furthermore, if she falls, I am notified immediately. A health alert notification is sent to a call center, where a representative will contact her to see if she is alright. This gives me peace of mind that I can check on her, but in the event of a fall, she will get immediate care if needed. It also allows her to live independently, and, as one of her caregivers, it allows me to live my life without worrying about her all the time. OneCare has made my life, and mom's, so much better!
