The advanced remote monitoring and engagement capabilities allow Kendal members to maintain and enjoy their independence within their homes. The system provides simple yet flexible remote care solutions.  This includes appointment reminders, vital medical statistics monitoring, and exception-based alerting, video chat, and social media access.

As social media usage among adults 65 and older continues to increase, this ability couldn’t be more important. Not only does the system keep members healthy, it keeps them in touch with their care coordination team, as well as family and friends, providing for a happy and healthy state of living.

The innovative partnership is the only one of its kind. Delivering eldercare services truly  shifts the paradigm of traditional healthcare to a member-centric model. This setup enables independence and wellness from inside the home while not only eliminating isolation, but also decreasing costs.

We are not the only ones who recognize this innovation The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) has awarded Independa the 2015 Innovation Award in the “Tech for a Better World” category.

“Our vision to enhance the lives and independence of seniors has driven our innovation and the development of life-changing technologies that are powerful, yet simple to use,” said Kian Saneii, founder and CEO of Independa. “We will continue to design and deliver the best innovations in senior care, positively impacting the lives of care recipients, and those who care for them, as well as positively impacting the organizations of our customers and partners.”

At Kendal at Home, we couldn’t agree more, and will continue working with Independa to continuously improve the lives of our members. Additionally, Kendal at Home Care Coordinators will handle all logistics regarding television set up in Members’ homes. Kendal at Home Members will receive these televisions at no additional cost. No new or special technical skills or knowledge are required to operate CloudCare.  Due to the technology  being cloud-based, Independa will make all upgrades without needing any action on  anyone else’s part.

If you want to learn more about the award-winning Independa or Kendal at Home services, don’t hesitate to contact us. We look forward to helping you remain happy, healthy, and independent in your home.
