Care Predict’s AI-Powered Technology for Enhanced Resident Care and Effective Infection ControlRaya’s Paradise Communities partnered with CarePredict, the leading digital health and remote monitoring company for senior care, to use CarePredict’s innovative technology for resident wellbeing and safety, engaged workforce, and effective infection control.
“Senior living facilities are combatting unprecedented challenges today and recognize the critical role technology plays in their residents’ health and safety,” said Satish Movva, CEO & Founder, CarePredict. “We are pleased to partner with these leading senior communities who are committed to empowering their staff with tools that enable quality senior care.”
The CarePredict solution uses an award-winning smart wearable, Tempo™ Series 3, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and advanced kinematics algorithms to learn each resident’s daily activity and behavior pattern. When there is a deviation from an individual’s “normal,” the system alerts staff on a wide range of potential health concerns. This ability to detect the early signs of health concerns allows for preventive care and ensures residents’ wellbeing. Communities using CarePredict have reported as much as 40 percent lower hospitalizations and a 64 percent reduction in falls annually.
“What is most appealing about CarePredict, apart from the fact that it addresses the needs of both our residents and staff, is the simplicity of the technology, said Peter DeMangus, VP of Business Development, Solterra Companies. “For new constructions, the CarePredict system is the least disruptive and fastest to install requiring no servers, antennas, or external hardware.”
CarePredict employs a real-time location system [RTLS] that provides insights to operators on workforce productivity, including the time to respond, automated documentation of care services provided, and automatic tracking for time caregivers spend with residents in direct care. The use of CarePredict’s location-based insights has increased staff response rates in communities by 37 percent. CarePredict Tempo is packed with additional features that improve the resident experience, such as integration with RFID for keyless door access, a concierge services button, and two-way voice communication that allows residents to speak to staff, thus helping residents receive timely assistance.
CarePredict’s latest offering, CarePredict PinPoint automatic digital contact tracing solution is the first commercially available contact tracing solution specifically designed for congregate living settings and is available to all CarePredict customers for effective infection control. Using PinPoint, communities can identify, within seconds, all the people and places exposed to a suspected carrier, and effectively stop the spread of infection within the community.
About CarePredict CarePredict’s mission is to help caregivers take timely action by detecting a senior’s activity and behavior patterns that are precursors to health declines and increased risk for falls. Based on the well-known notion that changes in the daily activity behaviors precede health issues in seniors, CarePredict’s award-winning smart wearable, Tempo™ autonomously observes, and the system alerts professional and family caregivers on these changes, before something happens. CarePredict’s latest offering PinPoint, the automatic contact tracing solution for senior care, helps facilities stop the spread of infections by quickly identifying all the people and places that were exposed to an infected person. By enabling the isolation of just the exposed contacts, PinPoint holds the solution to protect our vulnerable seniors without compromising their social, mental, and physical wellbeing.
Grandparents are the latest players on boardTeenagers hold the gaming fort strong, but they are now being forced to share their gaming console with another group, their grandparents. Seniors across America have started jumping on the gaming bandwagon to stay busy and to find a community to engage with. According to a survey, the USA had 51 million gamers above the age of 50 years. The rise in the grey-haired players is owing to two factors. They are either aiming to spend quality time with their grandkids by engaging in activities the younger generation enjoys. Or they are looking for intellectual challenges. Video games are fun, they challenge the players, provide adventure, and help them connect with people. Just like youngsters, the elderly have started forming groups with players interested in the same game and have started having dedicating play sessions. Video games are proving to be more engaging, active versions of the good old poker and bridge clubs. While video games provide intellectual challenge and stimulus is spades, researches have proved that video games are helping seniors cope with cognitive ailments Alzheimer’s and dementia. They provide an excellent workout for the brain by creating meaningful experiences without leaving the comforts and safety of a community. At Raya’s paradise, seniors, we encourage you to virtually wield your sword, run to your heart’s content, create your own city, and care for your animals, all while sitting on your comfy chair. We understand that leaving your safe zone to travel far and wide isn’t a possibility, but this doesn’t mean you don’t get to see all the great places. This is what virtual reality is designed for. Travel to Paris with your friends, experience the long-pending Gondola Ride with your better half, or engage in a multi-player Super Mario game to see who’s the best player. Once you experience gaming, you will realize that not only is it super fun, but it is also helping you lead an engaging fulfilling life. Regular gaming sessions with your friends or with your grandkids will increase your social interaction and will give you daily updates of their lives. To facilitate your gaming, we have the best Wii Consoles. Wii consoles will help you game with your friend who lives across the country as well as be your gaming partner while playing solo. Get gaming seniors, our consoles are waiting for you!
Three important legal documents that every adult should have are a will, a living trust, and a living will. Each document defines your decisions for the different areas of your estate and will save your loved ones time, money and stress when you are gone. These documents are easy to draw up, or you could have a lawyer prepare the documents for a nominal fee.A WILL dictates how your estate and property is to be distributed after your death and can also designate guardians for children and self should you become incapable or pass away. A regular will must pass through probate court in most states before your estate can be passed on to your heirs. Most state laws do not require that you use a lawyer to prepare your will; you can use a will kit at home. Probate court can take some time if there are any disputes, so make sure your wishes are clear when writing your will. A LIVING WILL defines your wish to be kept or not kept alive by artificial life support in the event of terminal illness or injury. A living will also give you the ability to set limits on your hospital, medical and funeral costs that can easily drain your estate and leave your loved ones with the bills. If you express your wishes beforehand, it will make the process much less stressful for those involved in your care and the execution of your final wishes. A LIVING TRUST is quite similar to a regular will, but they are different at the core. Unlike a regular will that cannot be changed after it is written, a living trust can be amended at any time. A living trust takes effect while you are alive, whereas a will takes effect after you pass. You can put property into your living trust at any time before your death and afterward your estate goes directly to your heirs without passing through probate court. If you ever change your mind about the definitions of your will, you can change or revoke how your estate will be divided at any time by using a living trust. A living trust will also save money and time later on because your loved ones won’t have to go through probate first.

- Decide whether or not you (or your parents) will itemize deductions. Run the numbers to decide whether you’re better off taking the standard deduction (which is $5,950 for single filers or $11,900 for those who are married filing jointly). If you are going to itemize, look for opportunities to increase the amount of deductions before the year is over, since all deductions will lower your tax bill. For example, if you make a larger-than-usual donation to charity you’ll reap extra benefits. This may motivate you to do a little holiday cleaning, and take unused clothing or furniture to The Salvation Army or Goodwill. These organizations will provide you with a receipt, and you’ll be able to claim the item’s fair value as a deduction.
- Make large gifts now. If you or your parents want to give someone a large cash gift, write the check and make sure it’s cashed before January 1. You can give as much as $13,000 to an individual without being required to pay gift tax.
- Make an extra house payment. Here’s a trick for maximizing your deductions if you’ll be itemizing next year. Make your January mortgage payment early. As long as you mail it by December 31, the payment will qualify for this tax year.
- Review medical expenses. How much have you and your parents paid for medical care out-of-pocket? If your medical expenses are greater than 7.5 percent of your adjusted gross income, you can deduct them on your tax return. If you are close, you may be able to find ways to get care or purchase supplies that will put you over the edge.
- Consider claiming your parent as a dependent. If you pay more than 50% of your parent’s expenses, and their gross income is less than $3,800 (not counting disability payments, tax-exempt income, or Social Security), you can claim them as a dependent. Again, if you’re just shy of qualifying, see if you can make up the gaps in the last few weeks of the year.
