Irish company uses technology to help the elderly stay safe in their homes

blank

Irish health tech start-up HaloCare says it can help older people stay in their homes longer, keep social life together and potentially reduce care costs by using a network of sensors in the home from the front door to the kettle. These devices, which the company describes as discreet, collect live data and track the movement of the occupant of the home – all of which can then be shared with the person’s support network via a dedicated app.

The data is also monitored by HaloCare’s team, based at its hub in Carlow. This team of 25 can then contact the home resident or their family if the information collected at the home appears to deviate from the elderly person’s normal routine.
“It’s about reassuring that this isn’t big-tech surveillance,” says newly appointed chief executive Sarah O’Dwyer, who says the company doesn’t put cameras on-premises.
