The Caring Cloud Smartphone App is the innovative, award winning (Cisco Raptor Award and finalist in both UK Tech MHealth Apps and UK Care Apps) smartphone application, designed and built by us at Caring Cloud in the UK, available for both Android and IOS (Apple) devices, that seamlessly brings together the various Caring Cloud configured equipment that the person being cared for has in their home (such as emergency buttons/temperature sensors/power sensors/GPS Mobile Phones etc), directing any alerts automatically to their own “Caring Cloud” of carers; consisting of family/friends/neighbours who can then respond in a number of clever ways.
The Caring Cloud Smartphone App allows any number of family/friends/neighbours to join the person being cared for’s “Caring Cloud”. The person being cared for (we call them the Service User) is identified by several secure identifiers (Name, Date of Birth, Postcode, Caring Cloud Unique ID) – all of these must be made available to anyone wishing to join their individual “Caring Cloud”.
The Caring Cloud Smartphone App is completely free to download from the PlayStore (Android) or the AppStore (Apple), which means that those family/friends/neighbours who have agreed to join a cared for person’s “Caring Cloud” of carers pay nothing themselves.
We call the person that signs up to the Caring Cloud the “Account Holder”. This in turn allows any number of family/friends/neighbours to join that cared for person’s “Caring Cloud” by entering the unique identifying information supplied by the Account Holder
The Account Holder can invite family/friends/neighbours to join an individual’s Caring Cloud of carers from within the App, or by sending them a text/email, or even by just speaking to them on the phone! They can supply the Service User’s unique identifiers to allow those family/friends/neighbours to associate their Caring Cloud Smartphone App with the person being cared for.
An important feature that is included in all accounts is the fallback protection offered by a professional ISO accredited Orbis call centre (http://www.orbisprotect.com/our-credentials/) – if an alarm, triggered by the cared for person, is not picked up by their Caring Cloud of carers within a pre-determined time, it is automatically routed to the call centre (this service incurs an additional charge to the Account Holder per call received).
