Passive, in-home activity monitoring creates safer environment for senior housing residents
Online PR News – 15-May-2014 – Victoria, BC – Vigil Health Solutions Inc. (“Vigil”), creators of technology for senior living, is pleased to announce they have signed a reseller agreement with Lively (www.mylively.com), which offers activity-sharing products that help older adults live independently longer. Lively uses passive sensors applied to everyday household objects to measure daily activity levels and automatically notify family members, or other designated caregivers, when anything may be amiss.
This solution complements Vigil’s suite of technology for senior living providers to further enhance monitoring and safety for residents living in their communities. Lively’s system has received industrywide praise for its ease of installation, low cost and not requiring any home Internet connection or phone line to use it. Lively also provides older adult customers with a regular printed mailer, called LivelyGram, of photos and short messages submitted from social networks, like Facebook, that shares activity and events from younger family members.
“Lively is a great fit with our mission of providing creative technology to improve the quality of life for seniors,” said Troy Griffiths, President and CEO of Vigil Health Solutions Inc.
