LifePod® Solutions Inc., the groundbreaking, proactive-voice caregiving service, announced that Wingate Healthcare plans to extend access to LifePod’s two-way, voice-first service to 100 or more residents in four of its communities this fall, following the success of a Beta test program. Driven by its mission to improve the health and well-being of its residents through high quality, individualized care, Wingate conducted a Beta test of LifePod’s proactive-voice services with 14 of its residents over the past three months. The Beta’s successful results, which included increased peace of mind for family members and care teams, and improved communications between Wingate residents and staff, accelerated the decision to expand LifePod to 100 additional Wingate residents.
Using an intuitive, online portal and dialogue management platform, LifePod simultaneously monitors and supports family members and health care clients via personalized voice prompts, while also providing real-time alerts, daily reports, periodic voice check-ins, and more. Wingate’s Beta tests with LifePod focused on leveraging voice- and virtual-care models to effectively provide unique luxury care to the pilot’s 14 participants. During the pilot, Wingate’s members averaged 9-12 interactions per day with LifePod’s voice-first service. These engagements supported Wingate’s care plans and provided a stress-free way for relatives of the residents to interact and care for their loved ones living at Wingate. In addition, Wingate management and staff reported high levels of satisfaction with the LifePod Beta tests.
LifePod® is the first proactive-voice, artificial intelligence powered caregiving service developed with a singular goal in mind: to support and improve the quality of care and life for both caregivers and care recipients throughout their journey together. LifePod’s customizable functionality fits the unique needs of a wide range of caregivers supporting older adults aging in place as well as those suffering from chronic illnesses or disabilities at home. The LifePod team, comprised of experienced voice and health technology veterans, works closely with families, professional caregivers, and senior living communities to improve health outcomes and reduce the costs of long-term and chronic care.
