"Even those of us who’ve been fascinated by exciting technical developments all our lives start to realise that one day it’s going to get beyond us. All the new, smart ways of keeping in touch, understanding what they all do, having to remember passwords – the digital world may hold the key to instant communication but, as we get older, some of us are never going to be comfortable relying on it. Which is why I’m so impressed with Care Messenger – a simple way to make the sort of personal contact we’re all going to need, through the medium so many of us know best of all – our televisions."
Michael Rodd - Tomorrow's World Presenter and Businessman
"My mother has recently returned from a spell in hospital and we are using the system much more - Care Messenger has really come into its own. She is able to keep on top of all her daily medication and numerous appointments. Also, a number of family members have been using Care Messenger to great effect - mother absolutely loves getting messages from everyone. Local council Home Help visiting my mother have been impressed with Care Messenger. In short, Care Messenger is a fantastic and fun way to help my mother cope with life at home."
Phil Winter - Customer
“We are delighted with this new system – I was able to see first-hand how our residents react - one lady was so impressed by the life-like quality and ease with which she could chat with her son on her gleaming new TV, she was moved to tears! She’d never been able to do this before because she doesn’t have internet and is not comfortable using a tablet or a smart phone.
My manager Christine Farmer said she was so moved by how this system was transforming the lives of some of our lonely and isolated elderly people that when she saw the emotional reaction of one of our customers, she was in tears herself. The Care Messenger manager portal is going to make it so much more efficient and fun to communicate with our customers - it’s great for the staff as well as the elderly residents”.
David Bennison, Owner, Castle Care
"We believe that the Care Messenger technology is potentially a much more powerful, cost effective, and feature-rich way to deliver Telecare services to our clients than what is currently available.
At present, Telecare technologies are largely reactive (to falls, accidents, gas leaks etc.) and could be taken as rather expensive insurance policies, used only 3% of the time! The Care Messenger technology takes advantage of the one piece of technology the elderly use more than any other (their TV) and spend a great deal of time watching.
The elderly are both familiar and at ease with the TV and remote, so this is an ideal way to reach them for proactive communications and to allow family and friends, many of them living at a distance or even abroad, to stay in touch, thereby addressing social isolation which other Telecare technologies do not touch at present – they are chiefly focused on safety. In particular, the simple video conferencing system you are developing will be ideal and of great interest to us. We have tried Skype and other video applications, but these are not appropriate for old people and the simplicity of the Care Messenger approach to video calls which does not entail any channel shift is much more suited to this target audience.
We see the whole Care Messenger solution being a key part of our Telecare offering in the future."
