ElderCheck Now® App Helps Caregivers Obtain Updated Health Information

The ElderCheck Now® app aims to help caregivers obtain updated health information of the older adults they monitor by leveraging new technology available in the latest smart devices. Caregivers can send secure check-ins to older adults, who can respond through a simplified two-button interface on Apple Watch® or iPhone®.
