Concierge home health care provider Alliance Homecare introduces a new proprietary in home Virtual Assisted Living (VAL) technology platform.
Named for Alliance Homecare co-founder and CEO Greg Solometo’s grandmother, Valma (VAL), the tablet and its proprietary, customized technology enables families to stay connected with the entire care team 24/7 in real time with phone, video and messaging capabilities. The tablet also provides informative and entertaining content for the client.
The tablet includes a caregiver check-in/check-out, the ability to view documents and care plans, and Internet connectivity to visit favorite websites. Using the tablet, clients are also able to track daily mood, pain, sleep and appetite; watch wellness programming; do basic exercises; access family photos; watch movies on Netflix; read books on Kindle; and listen to their favorite music through Pandora.
All Alliance caregivers are being trained to help facilitate VAL. The proprietary tablet will be introduced into more than 100 client homes over the summer and to all new long-term admissions going forward, according to Alliance Homecare in a media release.
“The beauty of this technology is that it can be customized to each client’s needs and interests,” Solometo says in the release. “Aside from important safety features, we are improving the lives and experience of elders choosing to age in place. Leveraging technology is an exciting new direction for us and our clients.”
Alliance Homecare serves clients in lower New York State, which includes: the five boroughs of New York City, Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester and Rockland Counties as well as Bergen County in New Jersey.
