Speak face-to-face with your loved one using Companion’s video chat. Unlike other video calling applications, Claris Companion is private, secure, and incredibly easy to use. Seniors using Claris Companion can connect to family using any device including laptops, Android smartphones or tablets, and iPhones or iPads.
Because your loved one’s Companion tablet is always on, they will always be alerted to an incoming call and only need to touch the large “Answer” button, or they can video call to family by selecting from a list of selected contacts.
Using Claris Companion’s secure Auto-Answer feature, you can see your loved one at any time and make sure they’re okay even if they can’t get to the tablet.
Also integrated with Zoom, Webex, Meet, Teams, and GoToMeeting.
Send email, text, app or web console messages directly to Claris Companion (a private email address and text message number is provided by us). Regardless of how family sends the message, the message appears exactly the same way to your loved one to avoid any confusion. Seniors are notified immediately and messages appear in large easy-to-read text. They can also reply or write new messages using the on-screen keyboard, voice-to-text recognition, or external bluetooth keyboard (not included).
Family videos are an easy and wonderful way for you to engage your loved one socially as well as provide valuable care information. Anyone can upload videos of any format to Claris Companion from anywhere. New videos are automatically displayed on the screen and are stored in their personal video album to enjoy at any time.
Email (or upload) digital photos to your loved one’s Companion from anywhere. New photos are automatically displayed on the screen and are stored in their personal photo album to enjoy at any time. When not in use, Companion can be set to display photos in slideshow mode, just like a digital picture frame.
Seniors love playing the interactive games on their Claris Companion including Solitaire, Tetris, Word Stacks, Candy Crush, NYT Crossword, and Sudoku. You can also choose from 1000s of games on from the Google Play Store to be available to your loved on.
Your loved one can keep up with the latest online news by providing them access to various news websites. Claris Companion is pre-configured with CNN, NY Times, CNBC, Fox, Google News and more.
You can remotely configure access to any website so your loved one can get information on local services and keep up-to-date with news from around the world. Each website is accessible on Companion by touching a large button that you can name, examples include the Weather, Shopping, Banking, Games, Google, etc…
Your loved one will have one touch access to local hourly, daily, and 7 day weather forecasts.
Medication compliance is critical to helping keep seniors safe at home and out of hospital. Claris Companion can be configured to remind seniors when to take their medications or perform other health care related treatments such as glucose testing. Alerts can be sent to family and care providers if reminders are missed.
Schedule calendar event notifications remotely. Claris Companion will automatically alert your loved one to important activities such as appointments, visits, social engagements, birthdays…
Q & A
Without intruding, get answers to simple questions by scheduling surveys. With the touch of one button, your loved one can respond Yes, Maybe or No to any question you configure. For users with mild dementia, Alzheimer’s or memory loss, questions can be scheduled in advance and repeated daily so you can easily keep track of their well-being and compliance with daily routine.
Claris Companion automatically generates alerts if anything is out of the ordinary such as missed medications, treatments, or check-ins. Alerts can be sent as emails, text messages or mobile phone app notifications, and tailored for specific family members or home care workers to follow-up before an adverse event occurs. Alerts are easy way to keep track of your loved one and make sure that they’re okay.
Many seniors recognize that loved ones lead busy lives and don’t want to disturb them even though they wished “you’d call more often”. With a touch of the “Call Me” button an email or text message can be sent to loved ones asking them to call when they get a chance. As a result, isolated seniors can reach out to family and friends without feeling like they’re being intrusive.
Daily wellness surveys can be scheduled that kindly ask the senior how they are feeling. With the touch of a button (better/same/worse), wellness trends can be established over time and alerts can be sent to family and caregivers.
In the morning, seniors can press the “check-in” button to send an email or text message to loved ones letting them know they’re okay. If the check-in button is not pressed, after a configurable amount of time an alert will be generated and sent to family or caregivers notifying them that the check-in was missed.
Daily exercise has been proven to improve the physical and mental well-being of seniors. Claris Companion offers one-touch exercise videos specifically developed for seniors at home.
