Telepresence Devices & Senior Living

Experts all point to socialization as a key ingredient to healthy aging.  Researchers at The Harvard School of Public Health have found evidence that elderly people who have an active social life may experience a slower rate of memory decline. Memory decline amongst the most sociable was less than half the rate of those who were the least sociable.  Further, previous studies have indicated that people with many social ties have lower mortality rates.  An SPD can be a useful tool in promoting social interaction and keep the elderly more engaged and in touch.

Be There:  As the demands on our time increase and travel becomes more expensive, Smart Presence™ technology will allow you to “be there” when and as often as you want.  You can stay involved and make sure mom and dad are safe and doing well.

Remember, unlike Skype and Facetime, SPD technology is a one-way street.. The person who receives a visitor need not be a technology guru.  You don’t need to purchase a new device or get another gadget.  Once an SPD is in place all you have to do is connect and “Say hi.”  Telepresence Devices are warm, inviting, engaging and fun.  Expand your social interaction; remotely coordinate caregiver services from afar.  You can have a real presence any time with an SPD.

TeleHealth represents the next frontier in medical care.  Healthcare providers are already feeling the pressure to provide this service from their digitally connected patients.

Research shows that the majority of adult patients today are comfortable with traditional telephone and face-to-face methods of communicating with their physicians.

However, millennials prefer to eliminate in-person visits altogether and crave the digital connectedness that only integrated TeleHealth solutions can provide.

“In the not-too-distant future, TeleHealth will be such an integral part of the medical experience that there will be no difference between traditional healthcare and TeleHealth; TeleHealth will be the new norm in healthcare” The tipping point, is just around the corner.  Soon, projected within the next four years, there may be more patients that are using TeleHealth than visiting face to face with their doctors.

Today’s digital natives expect to interact online with service providers – including their physicians – with the same convenience they experience with ride-sharing via Uber or booking a vacation room via Airbnb. Those providers that haven’t begun catering to the younger patient demographic using TeleHealth are already falling behind.” To remain relevant, healthcare providers must maximize on these expectations by providing fully integrated TeleHealth solutions.  A Telepresence Device provides a viable, nimble, flexible interactive solution.
