How Automated Care Calls Can Help

by Deah on Wednesday, February 13, 2019 1:54 PM

What is an automated care call? These calls are an automated calling system from SageMinder that will place calls on a daily basis to remind a loved one to take their medication or just simply check in. The medication reminder calls can be set up to call multiply times a day. (We also offer Live Operator Care Calls)

For the busy caregiver this offers peace of mind and removes the feeling that you are constantly nagging while giving a greater sense of independence to the loved one. The caregiver will be notified of the outcome of the call by text or email and the system can be edited to notify only of negative responses. Many caregivers have other responsibilities such as work and dependent children that make it hard to juggle everything. Care Calls offer reassurance to the elderly person and the caregiver benefits by SageMinder removing the tedious task of calling throughout the day to check up on them or remind them to take their medications. The caregiver will have access to online reports charting and tracking the call responses.

There is no need to purchase any additional or new equipment, your loved one simply picks up their existing phone when it rings at the designated time. The call system is very affordable and care calls have been shown to decrease the number of doctor and hospital visits by making sure medications are taken properly and chronic disease management is being followed. Care calls allow an elderly person to stay in their home longer with the security that someone is looking after them on a regular basis.

Of course, for some people, an automated call may not be enough. If your loved one has a complicated medication regimen or needs a more personal touch, SageMinder also has live operator calls that can be more tailored to an individual situation.

SageMinder Care Calls are a simple call that could help save a life, or just give you that much needed reassurance that your loved one is okay.
