Let’s talk about why you should consider making use of this technology.

An overwhelming percentage of young family members have difficulty caring for their loved ones. Cooey in Alexa is a wonderful tool for today’s family, especially where there is an ageing parent who needs constant monitoring & support who invariably gets lost out in the complexities involved in logistics of care.

Given a choice, the older adults would prefer to stay put in their homes rather than look at other options of staying away. It is where they feel most comfortable, safe, and happy. All they need is a solution that helps them to reach out to their caregivers & family members when in need.

And they want simplified answers to their problems. In today’s world, talking is cheap and easier way to communicate because there’s so much that can happen around it.


Say, your parent (Tim) talks to Cooey in Alexa “I’m feeling dizzy today” and you instantly receive a message in AnyCare Kin app saying “Tim is feeling dizzy, you may want to call and find out.”

Yes, Cooey in Alexa empowers your ageing parent to call you or his/her caregiver, send an alert, seek advice, receive reminders as the case may be. It’s a super easy way to connect with, and it’s one of the most cost-effective techniques too.

Conclusion

There is growing need to create an environment that is highly desirable to most senior citizens; an environment that makes their life simpler. Family members and caregivers will need a new gen tech solution to do the best job possible so that they stay informed, coordinated, and most importantly, connected.

The vision here is to transform senior care, in-home care and illness that catch up with ageing. AnyCare platform with Cooey in Alexa makes it easier and empowers the end user, be it a patient, a caregiver, or a family member, from a laptop or smartphone to execute the tasks at hand proficiently.

You go to a park, you see children running around, laughing away and living every moment of it. On the other hand, you see their parents stressed, tired, or rushed and that’s what you get from the busy, modern life.

Endorphins are responsible for making you feel happy, they create the feelings of joy and euphoria, and they bring down your stress levels in the process.  So, never turn away from a person who helps you put a smile on your face.
