    Hi!

    I have been following you posts on home health and technology and thought our eCaring system might of interest.

    eCaring is an innovation, home health care management tool developed to make home care work better for caregivers and their families. eCaring™ enables all people associated with home health care to answer the most basic of questions, that today cannot be answered in a timely or accurate manner: What’s Going On?

    As the first of its kind, eCaring brings the benefits of digital records into the home. We’ve created an easy-to-use, intuitive system that enables caregivers to report, monitor, and track the status of a home care recipient, from their activities of daily living to their state of mind. You can view this information online, anytime, anywhere and share it with the hearts and hands supporting your home care recipient, including other family members, care managers, physicians, or other professionals.

    I invite you to check out our website and our videos that explain more about how eCaring works. http://www.ecaring.com/care-tracker

    If you have any questions or would like a complimentary demo, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your time!

    Best regards,

    I’m reaching out to you on behalf of Family Ribbon – a new intuitive app designed to help get senior citizens
    online quickly and safely.

    Studies dating back nearly 40 years have shown that seniors with strong social connections are more likely to live longer than their peers who maintain little or no social connections. Now, Family Ribbon is helping to keep those relationships strong.

    Family Ribbon creator Ivan Osadchiy had a personal reason for creating Family Ribbon. “When my father needed to go to the hospital in 2010, I quickly realized that while I wanted my father to stay connected with his family, there wasn’t an easy solution. How could my father see his 2-year-old granddaughter thousands of miles away from his hospital bed? iPads, Skype and email all existed but how could a ‘technology shy’ beginner set up accounts and navigate through complex software? It was at this time when I started to create software for families to communicate that didn’t require a lot of training or onsite support.”

    Family Ribbon’s intuitive design, and straightforward instructions, help seniors get online quickly, even those who have no or limited previous experience with tablets or computers. Essential functions like email, video calls and social networks are at the user’s fingertips with large, easy to recognize icons. Children and grandchildren can even help set up and adjust settings remotely from their own device. Grandparents and great-grandparents can now easily connected with their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren without leaving the house, making it easy for ill and disabled seniors to stay connected and happy.

    The app’s new Reminders function, currently in beta, also allows family members to create event and medication reminders to help ensure that their loved one takes their medication, and makes it to their appointments, at the correct time.

    Family Ribbon is currently available for the iPad (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/family-ribbon/id481118335?mt=8), and can be downloaded as a lite version (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/family-ribbon-lite/id527234541?mt=8 ) for free. A beta version of the app for Windows 7 is also available (https://www.familyribbon.com/windows7/ ) — officially launching at the beginning of July — and an Android version of the app will be released later this summer.

    We believe that the app can help families stay in touch and bring joy to seniors who are far away, or removed, from their loved ones and friends, and we’re working hard to spread the word. If you could help us spread the word, perhaps through a blog post or a review, it would help us make a difference in the lives of so many. If you have any questions about the app, I would be more than happy to assist you. You can also visit their official site and their accompanying blog (https://www.familyribbon.com/blog/). Family Ribbon’s goal is to provide users with the best, easiest and most affordable way to stay in touch, and the team would love to hear your feedback.

    Kind regards,

    Janelle
