“It’s like we took a step into a future that we never imagined was possible,” said Sue Chaffin, mother of resident Matt Chaffin. “It’s indescribable.”

“We are honored to partner with an innovative and mission-driven organization,” said Laura Mitchell, CEO of GrandCare. “With the added challenge of COVID and social distancing, it’s more important than ever to have remote monitoring and socialization check-in tools to help keep everyone safe and independent.”

GrandCare touchscreens will be positioned throughout the house for easy access and regularly reminding. The GrandCares will prompt residents with interactive schedules and to do lists, to help them remember what needs to be done, and let them check off items as they’re completed. The systems will also include easy, secure video chat, rule-based alerts to support staff if something is amiss, a button to request assistance, and interaction with families through messaging, photos and video chats.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged the LADD team to rethink how we safely deliver support in an age of social distancing and virtual connection,” said Brian Hart, Chief Strategy Officer at LADD. “Thankfully, we have been working on this for a long time and our partnership with GrandCare enables us to provide a safe, scalable and affordable service model.”
