Nonnatech, Inc. provides cutting-edge, in-home solutions for seniors who would like to remain in their homes as they age.
Online PR News – 11-July-2011 – – Stamford, CT – Nonnatech, Inc., provider of home-based ‘aging in place’ systems and solutions announces the opening of their new Stamford office at 76 Progress Drive. With over 43 million adults nationwide now providing care for loved ones over 50, according to a 2010 AARP study, the need for cutting-edge homecare systems and solutions has never been greater.
“Many seniors want to continue living in their homes as they age,” says Gary German, the company’s president, who founded Nonnatech in 2010 after working with the elderly in various capacities for 19 years. “I realized there was a need for something to be created that allowed seniors to maintain their quality of life by aging in their own homes, and allowing family members and other caregivers to monitor their loved ones 24/7 from outside the home.”
Eight years in the making, Nonnatech enables family members, or caregivers, to remotely monitor loved ones, via computer, phone or live video, in real time, throughout the day. The system uses a wireless plug and play system and wireless sensors installed on beds, lights, chairs, toilets, doors and windows to track water spillage, wandering, temperature changes and permit users to set up alerts that can be sent as a text or e-mail.
“If seniors start taking more or less medication than prescribed, their daily habits may change,” says German. “Our system helps family members know if there is a change in sleeping or eating patterns. They will even know if they had an increase in bathroom visits during the day and night, which may be a sign of an issue with medications they are taking, or other problems. The system can decrease the chances of falls by notifying family members of water leaks and having lights turn on automatically. Your loved can send you a text or an e-mail simply by pressing a button.”
Unlike many competitors, Nonnatech’s products are unobtrusive and can be easily placed in the home. And unlike other systems that require the senior to push a button to activate them, or be worn at all times, Nonnatech’s technology is hands free. Baby Boomers (those ages 46-64) make up the largest demographic in America today. With millions of them facing imminent retirement, the need for improved in-home services for those who cannot afford, or do not want to be in a nursing home, is paramount.
For Gary German Nonnatech is a professional and personal milestone. Gary worked in nursing homes during his high school years and witnessed first hand some of the harsh realities that family members and friends face when dealing with the difficulties of monitoring loved ones.
“Many seniors these days just can’t afford home care workers in their home around the clock,” he says. “The Nonnatech ‘aging in place’ system helps alleviates some of the stress in taking care of parents and grandparents, and allows family members and caregivers to become aware of problems before they get out of hand.”
