How it Works:
1. A senior living alone has experienced a fall and is no longer moving.
2. After a period of time, Presence Family AI detects an abnormal lack of movement when historical patterns indicate movement should have been expected.
3. A text alert is first distributed to the senior who is given the opportunity to respond, should they have a smartphone. If there is no response, the senior’s Trusted Circle™ is texted after a few minutes.
4. The Trusted Circle is then given several minutes to collaborate through text messaging with the goal of establishing a plan of action to address the situation before alerting the Emergency Call Center.
5. If there is no text message response from any member of the Trusted Circle to explicitly cancel the escalation of the issue, the Emergency Call Center will be notified automatically to phone the predetermined Trusted Circle call list in an attempt to get their attention.
6. If a Trusted Circle member is successfully contacted, the Emergency Call Center will collaborate with them to determine if a first-responder wellness check should be deployed, or if a Trusted Circle member should check on the senior.
7. If a Trusted Circle member is not reached, the Emergency Call Center will facilitate a wellness check to the senior’s home.
8. Following the request for an emergency response or wellness check, the Trusted Circle can be notified through text messaging by the Emergency Call Center with a summary of the dispatch, along with a recap of the event viewable within the Presence Family app under ‘History’.
