Are you worried that your loved one may have a medical episode, such as a stroke, and nobody would
know until several hours later? Getting immediate medical attention may minimize the long-term
effects of a stroke, and even prevent death1. Activity monitoring can identify if there is something
abnormal, alerting you to a potential situation.
Seniors who maintain activity are 2/3rds less likely to experience cognitive decline2. TruSense compares the senior's
current activity to their baseline and the results are displayed on a graphical dashboard allowing you to identify a
decline in activity before it results in a potential health issue.
Do you ever call your loved one and wonder if there is a problem if they don't answer?
Are they hurt or have simply gone out with friends? Not answering the phone is a form of isolation and common with seniors.
It can be both a cause and symptom of other mental health issues such as depression1. Through a combination of exit and motion
sensors TruSense can determine if your loved one is at home or away, allowing you to address the situation accordingly thereby relieving stress.
This exit monitoring insight is also helpful for those whose loved one suffers from the early stages of dementia or Alzheimer's.
According to Alzheimer's Association 6 in 10 people with dementia will wander.
Has your mom started to fill the bathtub and left the room only to return sometime later with
water spilling over onto the floor? Are you concerned that your loved one is using the
restroom with more frequency? By placing an Motion Sensor in your loved one's bathroom,
TruSense can measure how often they are accessing the bathroom. In conjunction with the
Flush Sensor, it can be determined whether your loved one is actually using the restroom
or simply using the bathroom for some other purpose.
Placing a Water Leak Sensor on the floor next to a bathtub will immediately trigger notifications
to your loved one — as well as any friends or family that are set up to receive notifications —
if the tub starts to overflow. Not only can this help avoid water damage but slips due to water
on the floor can be more easily prevented.
A healthy appetite promotes a healthy life. Are you concerned that mom may be skipping meals?
Proper nutrition and hydration can be a challenge for older adults. Loss of appetite is often an early warning
sign of something gone wrong, and frequently an early sign of dementia1.
With food access monitoring, TruSense can give you comfort that your loved one is accessing food on a regular basis.
The senior's frequency of food access is monitored and compared to their historical baseline, then displayed visually on a dashboard.
Loved one's can visually identify any warning sign before it becomes an issue.
Do you wonder if a caregiver is showing up on time and how long they are there? With a visitor sensor
you can determine when and how long a caregiver was in the home. You can even customize TruSense to
send an alert when a visitor has arrived or departed. Visitor sensors can help you stay connected by coordinating
visits with your loved one among multiple family members.
Visitor sensors are also used to differentiate activity when the TruSense resident has a guest in their home.
It can be attached to a keychain, slipped inside a backpack or purse, or carried in a pocket.
Are you worried about the sleeping habits of your loved one? Is your dad not getting enough
sleep? Does your mom frequently get out of bed at night risking tripping in the dark? By placing
an Motion Sensor in your loved ones bedroom, TruSense can determine when they are going to bed or
starting their day. Using this insight, trends can be calculated to quickly see if your loved one
is practicing healthy sleep habits.
Additionally, plugging a bedside lamp into a Smart Outlet and placing an Amazon Echo Dot in the bedroom
gives your loved one the ability to turn on their lamp by just using their voice. This can greatly
reduce the risk of dangerous falls at night.
Are you concerned that when mom goes downstairs to do laundry that she could fall on the stairs? Many soft
falls such as sliding down stairs are not detected by emergency wearable devices. TruSense activity monitoring can be used in the
stairwell to determine if a fall has likely occurred. Our 24/7 monitoring center can attempt to verify if your loved one
is OK, and dispatch emergency medical care if needed.
Water leaks are a common problem in basements. With TruSense water leak monitoring you can be assured that water
leaks will be detected.
Your Loved One
Does your loved one suffer from a cognitive disorder and often times wanders away from the home?
Six out of 10 adults with Alzheimer’s or another form of Dementia will have a tendency to wander. Wandering and
getting lost is common among people with dementia and can happen during any stage of the disease. TruSense has
partnered with SmartSoles, a GPS enabled foam insert that slips into your loved one’s shoes. When they leave
the home you can instantly determine their real-time location on an interactive map. Geo-fences can be setup
to determine when they have gone outside of a particular area (e.g. yard, neighborhood), and you can be alerted
via text or automated phone call. The TruSense 24/7 monitoring center can also be utilized to notify emergency services.
Your Loved One's Vehicle
Would you like to be notified if your loved one leaves the home in their car?
Many seniors are able to drive safely well into their 80s and even early 90s, but it is not uncommon
as we age to have conditions that can pose challenges to safe driving including vision and hearing
problems, confusion, and slowed reaction times. In the event of a potential issue, you can pinpoint
the location of your loved one's vehicle on a map using GPS vehicle tracking.
TruSense vehicle GPS can be setup to notify you when they have reached their favorite spots (e.g.
grocery, church, doctor). With our vehicle tracking solution you can also receive notifications
when your loved one starts their car and if they leave a pre-defined area while driving.
