Wellness and Telehealth
OverviewMany seniors have to take regular wellness readings to manage chronic health conditions. Whether it’s diabetes, hypertension, CHF, or COPD, GrandCare’s wireless health devices can help. GrandCare can remind seniors to take the required readings. And it can alert caregivers if they have–or have not–been taken. It can also alert caregivers if the readings are problematic.
Health Device Options
Telehealth devices such as blood pressure monitor, ear thermometer, glucometer, pulse oximeter, and weight scale record readings and store them on the system located in the senior's residence. These health devices are all battery-operated and wireless. During setup, they are paired with the senior's system. After that, they automatically send vitals readings, as they're taken, directly to the system. Seniors can view their own vitals on their touchscreen. Family and professional caregivers access readings, graphs, and reports using the Care Menu, accessed through the Care Portal. They can log in, view data, access graphs and reports, and set up rules for reminders and notifications.
