As senior living communities move to limit residents’ exposure to Coronavirus (COVID-19), Constant Companion’s Q Tablet for Telehealth is being deployed to independent and assisted living communities nationwide to help older adults receive non-emergency care while avoiding risky trips to the doctor’s office or hospital.
The Florida-based voice and video technology company will make these Q Tablets available to senior living communities anywhere in the US for a minimal monthly cost, Constant Companion announces in a media release.
These tablets are designed to give residents and nursing staff secure access to non-emergency care from the comfort and safety of their rooms. They feature high-speed internet and are pre-loaded with apps from various telemedicine providers, allowing physicians to make “video house calls” and write prescriptions.
“This is a critical time for the health of our nation’s seniors, and we are the technology partner for America’s assisted living facilities from coast-to-coast,” says Mark Gray, CEO and founder of Constant Companion LLC.
“As the infection rate of COVID-19 continues to grow, we are committed to protect residents and staff members in senior care, so they stay safe. We are proud we can move quickly and provide potentially life-saving devices.”
The company will donate any profits from the device rentals to charity, it shares in the release.
