SAN DIEGO, Calif. – October 16, 2014 – Independa, the leader in integrated resident-facing remote care and engagement technology, today announced a partnership with Kendal at Home, an affiliate of Kendal, an industry-leading senior care organization. The partnership enables Kendal at Home to expand its service footprint to a national level, helping mitigate the geographic restrictions of typical care environments while raising the overall level of care for members.
“Kendal at Home represents the future of home care services,” said Kian Saneii, CEO of Independa. “Our advanced engagement and remote monitoring capabilities allow Kendal members to maintain and sustain their independence, supporting their deepest desires and Kendal at Home’s powerful core value proposition. We are changing the paradigm of traditional healthcare to a person-centric model that enables wellness while diminishing costs and eliminating isolation – truly enabling people to age in place.”
Independa provides simple to use yet flexible remote care solutions for the Kendal at Home members. The software provides important appointment reminders, vital medical statistics monitoring and exception-based alerting, video chat and social media access, allowing the user to enjoy an engaging, vibrant and healthy lifestyle while living at home. Additionally, Independa’s remote care and engagement technology provides simple management solutions for professional caregivers.
Through a partnership with LG Electronics, Independa’s services are delivered through the world’s only TV with embedded eldercare services. Users have access to important monitoring capabilities and social tools on their television, operated with just their standard remote control.
“Until now, the technology world had not catered to this important market to promote a person’s vitality and independence while they age,” said Lynne Giacobbe, Executive Director of Kendal at Home. “Independa provides a way for us to expand our offerings to a national audience, but more importantly, it addresses a need that has otherwise gone unfulfilled for our members until now. We are pleased to be able to offer this game changing solution to our members.”
