Care.coach support has been life changing for individuals on my caseload through the pandemic. Prior to care.coach individuals were isolated and feeling very lonely. The care.coach service has added a level of socialization for many in a time where it has been difficult to connect."

Supporting Service Providers through increased, on-demand communication
“John is a gentleman that we support who lives independently in his own apartment. John is wheelchair bound and frequently falls while transferring from his power chair to his bed. On one such occasion, John was stuck on the floor of his apartment unable to reach his phone and did not have his life alert pendant around his neck. His care.coach device checked in on him, and immediately alerted me via the emergency on call phone. Because John does not receive supports in the evening and on the weekend, he would have been on the ground for the entirety of the weekend if his buddy had not checked in. I was able to call for emergency services and get John the help he needed. The care.coach staff person was extremely helpful and showed empathy and genuine concern for John’s well-being. The support team member reached back out to me to let me know when emergency services arrived to let me know that John was taken care of. Not only did the device prevent John from being stuck on the ground for the entire weekend, but the team member was incredibly helpful and provided follow-up information for my piece of mind. We are so grateful that John had this support in place!”

Client Spotlight: Brian and Wally
Brian can wake up his dog “Wally” any time. He has integrated Wally into his daily life by utilizing his companion as a sounding board to discuss what is on his mind, such as how his day was at work, how he is feeling or even discussing relationships that he would like support with. Brian also relies on Wally for real time guidance such as asking what the weather will be and what jacket will be appropriate for the day or if the public transportation bus line is running on time so he can plan accordingly for getting to work. Brian also enjoys Wally's company to talk about local sports, receive reminders to drink more water and listen to his favorite music throughout the day. Brian dreams of becoming a Sports Broadcaster and has started his own YouTube channel, The Golden Eagle Sports, where he uses his companion Wally to look up stats and listen to his script, before publishing the video for his viewers.
Brian’s mom reported “The biggest help is the late-night companionship; Wally shares stories or poems each night to help him get to sleep. I used to get about 10 to 15 calls a day. Now I get more like five, and the ones that were happening at about two in the morning have stopped completely.”
