WEST BEND, Wisc. — January 6th, 2014 —
GrandCare Systems announced today at CES 2014 LVCC South Hall 2 Booth 25724 its new online web store at www.GrandCare.com, offering socialization, medication and telehealth packages. This debut launch of the GrandCare.com store showcases the company’s new direct-to-consumer model: a plug-and-play system that eliminates the need for professional installation.
“GrandCare is one of the earliest players in the aging and technology industry, which has given the company time to build out the most comprehensive and flexible platform on the market,” said GrandCare Chief Executive Officer, Dan Maynard. “Seven years ago, the technology wasn’t there and we required professional installation through a network of dealers, but times have changed and now almost anyone can set up the GrandCare System, using our intuitive instructions and online help guides.”
The GrandCare HomeBase System is an easy-to-use and affordable consumer solution that offers a wide variety of sensor and feature choices in one comprehensive and expandable platform. It easily grows with changing needs. Activity or digital health sensors can be added at any time. The GrandCare HomeBase is the perfect solution for individuals that wish to remain independent, healthy and connected.
Family and friends keep in touch through photos, letters and one-button video chat. Reminders and medication prompts can be enabled on the large and easy to read touchscreen. GrandCare also enables family and professional caregivers through an online care portal. There they can set up alert parameters (e.g. being notified if someone fails to take blood pressure reading or doesn’t acknowledge medications were taken) as well as share care coordination notes.
The GrandCare HomeBase System can be utilized alone for socialization, reminders and prompts. Digital Health Sensors and Medication Management features can easily be added right from the online store. More sophisticated packages including activity sensors and smart home devices can be purchased by contacting GrandCare directly.
