Claris Companion empowers individuals with IDD to live more independently

Organizations using Claris Companion’s automated care programs achieve greater levels of independence for their clients and increased efficiency for their care staff.

Empowering individuals with IDD to live more independently

Organizations using Claris Companion’s automated routines enable individuals to achieve greater independence and care staff to be more efficient.

Individuals with IDD seek more independence, their care providers are facing a staffing shortage.

Problem #1

Individuals that stay at residential care facilities require multiple check-ins throughout the day from care workers to verify activities of daily living.

The Solution

Claris Companion’s care routines allow individuals with IDD to stick to their daily schedules and rely less on checkins by care workers.

Problem #2

The nationwide shortage of care workers has affected the IDD world as well with care organizations finding fewer workers to staff residential care facilities.

The Solution

Claris Companion allows care organizations to be less reliant on staff to perform routine check ins and rather work with the platform to provide a higher level of care to residents.

What Our Happy Customers Are Saying:

My mother says that Claris Companion is like having a friend and company in the house. As soon as she comes in she checks it, looks at the pictures and sends a message to the grandkids about what she did and where she is/was going. The look on her face and the smile is priceless. SHE LOVES IT and it makes her day very special!

Julie Ray

I LOVE the Claris Companion! I’ve been telling everyone about it and giving demos to my friends with elderly parents. It has improved my mom’s quality of life because she feels more in touch with her family and friends. I can’t say enough good things.

Joyce Rosenthal

Claris Companion is working so well for my grandmother. Thank you! Your product helps change perspective towards technology, keep international families in touch, and reduce stress on primary caregivers and people living abroad. I have witnessed all four of these aspects in as many weeks.
