ElderCheck Now App connects caregivers to updated health and well-being information for the elders they care for

The ElderCheck Now app aims to help caregivers gain updated health information and overall well-being of the


 


elders they monitor by leveraging new technology available in the latest smart devices. Caregivers can send secure


 


check-ins to their designated elders, who can respond to their caregiver’s check-in requests through a simplified


 


two-button interface on Apple Watch or iPhone. This new electronic relationship returns a snapshot to caregivers


 


that includes a variety of important information about their elder’s overall well-being.


 


Taking advantage of features unique to iPhone and Apple Watch, the ElderCheck Now app


 


creates an easy way for elders to pass regular updates in far less time than it would take to text


 


or call. Where texting “I’m OK” fails to convey the full levity of a potential health situation,


 


the apps “I’m OK” or “Call Me” status updates a caregiver, while sending important heart rate


 


information, GPS location and even presents a button to quickly return a phone call. (Apple


 


“Our app was designed to provide caregivers with more information, more quickly and more often than would


 


ordinarily be possible with just calls and texts,” claims Shea Gregg, MD, founder and trauma surgeon in


 


Connecticut. “Through simplified two-way communication, seniors can request calls and provide check-in replies


 


with ease, giving peace of mind to both parties throughout their day in the most hassle-free way possible. One of


 


the best parts: They can do so on the devices they already use every day.”


 


FallCall Solutions, LLC, founded by doctors Shea and Kristin Gregg of Trumbull, Connecticut hopes to inspire elders


 


to embrace technology in order to help improve their quality of care, safety and overall well-being.


 


The ElderCheck Now app is currently available at a limited time promotional price on the App Store® of just $5.99


 


(reg. $8.99) and requires downloads to caregiver and elder devices for functionality. System requirements: IOS 9.0


 


or later and is compatible with iPhone and Apple Watch.
