Stay connected with the Claris Companion tablet

At Private Home Care, we are always looking for ways to give our clients and their families peace of mind and the best home care experience. 

That’s why we’ve partnered with Claris Companion, a new tablet that was designed specifically for aging adults and their families. The Companion is a customizable tablet that helps seniors easily connect with their loved one using email and text, photos, and video chat. It also gives family members and caregivers peace of mind because they can monitor their loved one’s safety, blood sugar, blood pressure and other vitals, medications, treatments, and appointments. 

Why we recommend Claris Companion

At Private Home Care, we see this technology as an innovative way to enhance the home care experience of our clients and their families. 

We strive to provide the best care based on good communication, consistency, and customization for each client. For clients that use the Claris Companion, the tablet can further support independence. It also keeps families even more involved and give them reassurance with a glance at their app. 

Connecting families during COVID-19

COVID-19 has isolated so many aging adults from their families. Claris Companion can help families stay in touch when they can’t be together in person. 

Feeling loved and having social interactions with their family and the world outside is so important to a senior’s emotional and overall well being. With the Companion tablet, with a touch of a button, seniors can request a phone call, video chat with family members, or look at the latest photos of their grandchildren who live long distance. 

Special Features of Claris Companion

The Companion honors the needs of both aging adults who want their independence and their adult children who want reassurance that their parent is safe and healthy. 

The tablet was designed for seniors. So, it’s easy to use, with large on-screen text for individuals who are visually impaired. It also has large buttons that are triggered easily for users who struggle with dexterity.

Family members or caregivers can remotely manage the Claris Companion from any smartphone, tablet, or computer. You can invite other family members to also connect on the Companion Console website. They can send messages and photos, receive alerts, and video chat.  

The Companion has many features, which you can remotely enable or disable. Claris recommends introducing features one at a time as your loved one becomes comfortable with them. Features include:

  • Email and text
  • Video calling 
  • Photos and videos
  • Calendar
  • Medication Reminders
  • Call Me request button
  • Alerts
  • Check-ins, wellness surveys, and Q&A
  • Web browsing, news, weather, resources, and games
  • Exercise videos
