At CareBuilders at Home of East Bay, one of our priorities is combating senior isolation and depression. The tried-and-true way to fight senior loneliness is to provide older adults with daily engagement, but for many families, it may be challenging to visit your loved one as often as you’d like. That’s where our new virtual caregiver comes in! Thanks to our innovative virtual care platform, we connect Alameda County seniors to their friends, family, and CareBuilders care team with just the touch of a button.
Our virtual caregiver is a great option for East Bay seniors who need more attention but can still live independently.
CareBuilders has created a virtual care platform that connects to your or your loved one’s TV and is operated with a universal voice-activated remote. Families can use our mobile app (available for Apple and Android devices) to connect with their loved ones from anywhere.
Our virtual care platform can:
Send and receive video calls
Send and receive text messages using voice-to-text
Share photos and videos
Receive live video from your mobile device
Connect voice-to-voice with CareBuilders when assistance is needed
The core of our virtual caregiver are daily 15-minute check in and chat calls. Usually, we’ll connect through the virtual care platform, but we can also call on the phone. These daily calls give our team a window into our clients’ lives and helps us monitor for changes that may impact their overall health. During these chats, we’ll ask them about their day and remind them to take their medication. Interacting with a friendly voice every day makes a world of difference for seniors living alone.
