SimplyHome How it Works

Sensors

Live Safely

With a SimplyHome System in place, individuals are able to go about their normal activities of daily living, while safety concerns are put at ease. By communicating with multiple sensors to log activities of daily living, the SimplyHome System proactively alerts caregivers and loved ones of changes in behavioral patterns. Alerts are designed to notify caregivers and/or loved ones of pre-determined activities, or inactivity, within the home, all of which are customized to address individual needs.

Responding to a Notification

By communicating with multiple sensors to log activities of daily living, the SimplyHome System proactively alerts caregivers and loved ones of changes in behavioral patterns. Notifications are designed to alert caregivers and/or loved ones of pre-determined activities, or inactivity, within the home, all of which are customized to address individual needs.

Notifications are customized with each system and tailored to meet the needs of each individual. Based on a pre-determined single event or set of sequential events, notifications are then sent to family or caregivers via text, email, or phone call.

Example: Because the stove is on and there has been no motion detected in the kitchen for 10 minutes, the SimplyHome System generates a notification. The alert is sent to Mary's daughter so she can respond appropriately.

Data & Trends

Sensor activity is logged on SimplyHome's secure, password protected website, where caregivers can track patterns over time. Additionally, providers and case managers can review multiple client accounts to ensure targeted care and oversee staff response.

Example: When Mary's daughter checks in online, she can see that her mother forgot she left the stove on 5 times last month. This information prompts Mary's daughter to investigate potential issues.

SimplyHome Average Report
For Families
  • Proactive involvement
  • Peace of mind
  • Improved quality of care
  • Increased confidence
  • Cost-effective solutions

Families with aging or disabled loved ones are often torn between two concerns - safety and independence. Seniors and people with disabilities want to remain in the comfort of their own home and avoid expensive, intrusive care. At the same time, families are concerned their loved ones will not be able to alert anyone should a need arise. SimplyHome supports provide a solution to these concerns, maintain independence for the individual, and alert a designated caregiver or family member if problems do occur. Families can be confident they will be contacted if certain activity (or inactivity) in the home of their loved ones indicates a potential concern. While SimplyHome systems cannot prevent accidents, our supports can provide a level of support to help you respond should an event occur.

For Disabled & Developmentally Disabled
  • Increased Independence
  • More control over their lives
  • Simpler transition into independent living

SimplyHome systems can also provide support to those with developmental disabilities or unique needs. SimplyHome staff members have more than two decades of experience in helping design assistive technology solutions for those who need it most. These supports empower individuals to live with more independence and control of their lives than ever before. SimplyHome systems have assisted providers in moving hundreds of individuals from various levels of institutional care to supported home settings. We look forward to designing a personalized care system after discussing your individual needs and goals.

For Seniors
  • Increased independence
  • Better quality of life
  • Comfort and safety in their own home
  • Ability to enjoy the activities of daily living
  • Unobtrusive and silent
  • Minimal maintenance
  • Adapt with changing needs

Seniors want to remain independent in their homes for as long as possible. For many people, SimplyHome supports help them do exactly that. SimplyHome connects families to provide a sense of safety and comfort for everyone. Seniors can live at home and enjoy their normal activities with the confidence their loved ones will be contacted "just in case" any problems arise. When the sensors detect a potential need, an alert is sent immediately through text message, phone call, or email. While SimplyHome systems cannot prevent accidents, choices or behaviors, family and caregivers are notified of actions or inactivity. The systems are unobtrusive, silent and require little or no maintenance. Once our staff designs your system and the sensors are installed it is ready to use. As your needs change, our on-going assessment tools and trending reports will assist in adjusting the system to meet your new circumstances.

For Home Health Providers
  • Better efficiency and quality of care
  • Customizable
  • Increased confidence
  • Personalized solutions

Home health and home care providers can utilize SimplyHome systems to increase the efficiency and quality of the care they offer. Our systems can be customized, enabling caregivers to have increased confidence in the supports offered to those they serve. SimplyHome systems are designed to allow effective support for individuals in apartments, group homes, assisted living and home settings. Increasing the efficiency of care for home health providers allows for personalized, cost-effective care solutions. The data managed, and reports generated, by the system allow providers to predict needs and observe trends in the health of those they serve.

Assisted Living Facilities

Assisted living facilities often face the difficulty of managing care for large numbers of residents while also offering quality care to each individual. SimplyHome systems can help ensure that each resident is supported and comfortable. Assisted living facilities can increase the efficiency and effectiveness of care because they have the confidence that problems will generate an alert to staff. Data, and customized reports, concerning common activities of daily living is securely stored by SimplyHome systems and is available for Assisted Living staff to analyze. Negative trends in sleep or eating behaviors and other potential problem areas can be detected before serious issues arise.

Long Term Care Facilities

SimplyHome supports provide a powerful tool in caring for those living in a long-term care setting. These systems provide a continuum of care ranging from simple call buttons and paging pendants to systems that allow remote appliance, lighting, and environmental controls. SimplyHome systems allow care providers to offer consistent and effective service to those requiring support. The long-term care setting is ideally suited to the use of SimplyHome assistive technology as efficiency is directly related to individual safety and long-term cost savings. Data concerning common activities of daily living is securely stored by SimplyHome systems and available for members on the care team to analyze. Negative trends in sleep or eating behaviors and other potential problem areas can be detected before serious issues arise.
