VIPs can be resistant to telecare devices when they are already comfortable with their mobile phone. The OystaCare app bridges this gap
Vulnerable Independent People (VIPs) should be encouraged to be active but have a safety net in place.
Telecare devices are often prescribed but some VIPs are resistant to learn new technology, especially when they already have a mobile phone.
Our OystaCare app bridges this gap as it can be installed on any Android phone (version 8+). It will soon be available on IOS.
In the OystaCare app, VIPs have an SOS button which sends an alert to the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) or their chosen contacts. The care circle can send welfare check messages and map the VIPs' location if needed via our IntelliCare™ platform.
OystaCare is a cost-effective telecare solution for VIPs who already have a mobile.
Care Circle Benefits
Simple to install, the app can be downloaded via the Google Play store and configured through IntelliCare™.
VIPs can indicate their wellbeing through the OystaCare app with a happy or sad face which is sent through to the care circle via IntelliCare. The care circle receives a notification and can plan for a welfare check.
You can see on IntelliCare, where your VIP is so if they need help, you can locate them and guide help to their location.
When VIPs are out and feel unsafe, they can press and receive assistance. It can activate a call through to the care circle or the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC).
Through IntelliCare, the care circle can see their VIPs activity pattern so that if the phone has not moved, the care circle will be notified to conduct a welfare check.
Only authorised callers from the care circle can contact the VIP. The whitelist can be changed at any time to add/remove contacts.
WeatherWatch notifies the care circle if the VIP is outside after dark or in extreme weather conditions. You can conduct a welfare check before problems occur, and if needed, guide them home using the location feature on IntelliCare.
Vulnerable Independent People (VIPs) Benefits
VIPs can install the OystaCare app on any Android mobile phone that has a version 8+ operating system. VIPs have a safety net when they leave home, with familiar technology.
OystaCare is very simple to use. The home screen has two main buttons for the VIP: “SOS” is to call for assistance if it is needed, and “How am I feeling?” which lets the care circle know how they are feeling.
At a press of a button, VIPs can be connected to their care circle or Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) if they feel unsafe.
VIPs can indicate their wellbeing by clicking on the “How am I feeling?” button which displays a “sad” face or a “happy” face. The care circle will be notified and conduct a welfare check if needed.
VIPs will receive an alert if the battery needs charging.
