LifePod®, the First Proactive-Voice Caregiving Service, Honored with 2019 Caregiver Friendly® Award

BOSTON , July 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LifePod Solutions Inc., the groundbreaking, proactive-voice caregiving service, announced today at the Voice Summit 2019 conference (#Voice2019) they have been honored as a 2019 Caregiver Friendly Award recipient in the Services category. Presented by Today’s Caregiver magazine, the first national magazine for all family and professional caregivers, the award celebrates products, services, books and media created with the needs of caregivers in mind.

“The average caregiver is responsible for more than $40,000 in health-related expenditures each year, in either personal or directed funds,” said Gary Barg, editor-in-chief of Today’s Caregiver magazine. “This award is designed to help family caregivers recognize and reward those organizations, like LifePod, who will care for them in as committed a manner as they care for their loved ones.”

Addressing the vast elderly-care market and the growing digital-health movement catering to out-of-hospital settings, comprising over 117 million Americans aging at home or dealing with chronic conditions, LifePod is the first AI-powered, proactive-voice caregiving service that can be configured by caregivers using an intuitive, online portal and dialog management platform. The LifePod service simultaneously monitors and supports family members and healthcare clients via personalized voice prompts, while providing real-time alerts, daily reports, and peace-of-mind to caregiving teams. Caregivers are supported with easy-to-use, fully customizable, two-way voice templates such as medication reminders, periodic check-ins, prompted access to streaming content, enhanced fall detection and more.

“We are thrilled to be recognized as one of the most exciting new solutions for caregivers with the 2019 Caregiver Friendly Award,” said Stuart R. Patterson, CEO of LifePod. “It is a strong validation of our mission to transform the $279 billion caregiving market by enabling over 40 million family members and professional caregivers in the United States to monitor and support their loved ones with proactive, voice-first services, and to simultaneously mitigate the social isolation felt by millions of Americans.”

The Caregiver-Friendly awards will be announced in the upcoming September/October issue of Today’s Caregiver magazine.
