Socially distancing seniors, yet staying connected – how can do we do this?

By | Vericare, Voice Technology | No Comments

Caregivers are increasingly concerned about the impact of social distancing on seniors. While social distancing is critical to keeping seniors safe from the coronavirus, social isolation may result in loneliness and lead to other negative outcomes, especially during this anxious time. Now more than ever seniors need to feel supported and connected. Virtual and remote care technology can play a key role in staying connected with seniors and supporting them in being safe Tochtech’s Vericare and Tochie products built specifically to support seniors can bridge distance, keep seniors safe, and offer caregivers peace of mind.

Using discrete passive sensors, Vericare will notify caregivers and family members of potential safety and health concerns using text-based notifications. While Tochie allows remote caregivers to setup medical and appointment reminders and send push messages and stay present in the lives of their loved ones. Please visit Tochtech to find out more.

As 2019 comes to a close the team at Tochtech Technologies would like to take this opportunity to thank you for support and business.

This year has been an extremely productive year for Tochtech. The number of Vericare installations with independent senior living providers, senior care providers and seniors living independently in their homes continues to grow, and the feedback from professional and family caregivers continues to be positive. Our collaboration with other service providers in the seniors market, in particular Personalized Dementia Solutions has been extremely rewarding with more families being introduced to Vericare. Additionally, our reach of the retail market for Tochie and Smarturns has had a significant boost with Best Buy, BIOS Medical, Boundless Assistive Technologies, Life Supply and a number of other online retailers signing up as distributors.

2019 has also see us make significant inroads into overseas markets in particular China. Both Tochie and Smarturns have been well received in the senior care business segment with sales in a number of different cities. The Vericare platform has also been installed in Senior living residences in two cities different. We have built strategic partnership with a number of Chinese distributors and look forward to the sales growth in the Chinese market in the new year.

We are excited at the prospect of welcoming 2020 and further expanding on the foundation we have established in 2019. We are looking forward to seeing you in the new year, and to further developing long and productive relationships with each of you and your organizations.

Wishing you a joyous Holiday season, and a prosperous 2020!

Tochtech’s philosophy centres around the use of technology to eliminate the risk and sense of disconnect for seniors, especially those living independently.

Feedback from customers such as the following on our Vericare product makes our work so satisfying: “I cannot thank Vericare (Jessica and her colleagues) enough for introducing me to their product. During the time that my mom lived with us in our home, it was very difficult to get a sense of what was happening with her during the night and even during the day if I happened to be out. By installing the sensors, I immediately had  “peace of mind”. I was able to better understand my mom’s sleep patterns as well as what she was doing during the day. The service I received from Vericare was professional and very caring. Thank you so much for everything”.
