Tochtech and Personalized Dementia Solutions Inc. partner to bring Vericare to seniors and their families

By | Vericare | No Comments

As the number of seniors grows each day families struggle to help provide the support their loved ones need. The reality is the increase in the number of seniors suffering for chronic disease and dementia further complicates care that seniors require.

Now Tochtech and Personalized Dementia Solutions Inc. have teamed up to bring Vericare as an additional support option to families and their loved ones. “Technologies like Vericare can definitely play a role in supporting families caring for seniors with dementia, especially during the early stages. Assistive technologies enable the senior in remaining independent, but at the same time allow families and caregivers the ability to check-in while respecting the senior’s needs for privacy.” says Karen Tyrell, Dementia Consultant and founder of Personalized Dementia Solutions Inc. which is based in Vancouver, BC.

While the need for in-person care will never go away, innovative technology solutions like the Vericare monitoring platform that alerts caregivers of an emergency or a potential illness can offer care givers peace of mind knowing their loved one’s safety and wellness are being continuously observed. “Vericare provided our family with valuable insights into the daily activities of our father who is suffering from dementia. It allowed us to support him in his home for longer that would be been otherwise possible” noted a family caregiver.

Tochtech’s Vericare platform will be installed at a Beijing-based senior care center that has over 200 beds and offers in-home care services to over 20,000 seniors in the community. Cui Hu Lan Tian management is confident that the safety and wellness monitoring platform will improve senior safety and improve care efficiency. This is the only care center in Beijing that offers caregiver training in addition to medical and nursing services for the community.

The initial Vericare product evaluation project started in April, 2019 for both their care center service and in- home senior care service. A number of units in the care center were installed with Vericare system to alert staff on safety risks when seniors were in their suites. Having proven the benefits of the system, the platform is to be expanded to other units within the care centre and seniors’ homes as part of the organization’s in- home service package. Management believes that the Vericare platform will enhance senior safety and wellness monitoring and enable care efficiency through standardization of operations, allowing them to expand and scale the business swiftly.
