Find Peace of Mind with Help from Visiting Angels and Constant Companion

As part of an attentive home care plan, including in-person caregiver visits, Visiting Angels offers a virtual assistant that can provide extra support for independent seniors in Richmond, VA

For seniors who wish to remain in their homes as they age, it is likely that they may need a bit of assistance to make this a reality. As much as we want to be there to support our loved ones, oftentimes work, family, and other obligations keep us from being available 24/7.

This is where Visiting Angels of Richmond can help. In addition to our attentive home care services, where an experienced caregiver comes into your loved one’s home, we also offer a new virtual assistant product called Constant Companion.

What is Constant Companion?

Constant Companion is a voice assistant that allows seniors the independence they crave while giving you the reassurance and peace of mind you need. Constant Companion uses Amazon Alexa for caregiving, calls for helps, and check-ins.

Constant Companion is not a stand-alone service and does not replace the need for an in-person caregiver. This product provides an extra layer of care that helps to keep your loved one engaged and safe in-between caregiver or family visits.

How Constant Companion Can Help

1. Virtual Assistant for Caregiving

Operated by voice-command Amazon Alexa, your loved one can reduce isolation and increase activity at home. Simple commands like “Alexa, play my music.” when synced with your loved one’s home devices, can make everyday tasks accessible.

Constant Companion can also make phone calls simpler for seniors. Your loved one can dial and receive calls easily without having to find their phone or click small, hard to see screens and buttons.

2. Emergency Call for Help

Constant Companion can also operate as a voice-activated medical alert system and can be set-up to connect to an Urgent Response Center 24/7. Your loved one doesn’t have to wear a device or have their phone nearby to have quick access to emergency services.

3. Complements Attentive Home Care

Having a support system and different layers of care in place are the best ways to keep your loved one in their home for as long as possible. In addition to bringing compassionate Visiting Angels caregivers in, having a Constant Companion device can provide that extra assistance your loved one may need to maintain their independent.
