Senior Care - BUKI, the Digital Companion

We are a light touch solution, our digital companion technologies grow with the changing needs of the elder care community, from the residents, to the staff, to your leadership.

SENIOR CARE COMMUNITIES FACE A MULTITUDE OF CHALLENGES

The world’s population is aging at a rate not seen before. The demands on existing and to be built elder care facilities are only increasing. One of the many, many challenges facing facility operators is providing complete and comprehensive monitoring 24/7/365. This challenge is exponentially more challenging without enough qualified staff to look after the residents in their care. There is an imperative need to be more vigilant with the aging population with the unique and expanding health and wellness needs.

Providing high-quality, comprehensive care efficiently for all elder care needs for every unique resident is increasingly challenging!  At any moment an individual resident’s needs may go unnoticed, not because of a lack of care, but because care providers cannot be everywhere at once. The high quality care you want to provide could benefit from a high tech boost.

This is where BUKI comes in! BUKI is a digital companion for each resident. Available all day, everyday, quietly assisting in the care of each resident. BUKI powered by Loud-Hailer’s real-time data collection and processing provides additional support for the resident, staff and the care facility administrators.

One common challenge we understand facing senior care staff is ensuring each resident is properly stimulated both physically and mentally throughout the day. It is challenging to easily and inexpensively know if a resident is spending time in the company of others, or that their idle and alone time is limited.

Are they getting enough time in the company of others? 

Are they spending too much time alone? 

Are they getting out and moving around the community grounds?

There is no clear way to know what’s happening unless someone is following each resident around all day everyday. And that is just not economically sustainable. BUKI can help.

BUKI becomes a digital companion to each resident. We quietly work in the background, keeping an eye on the location and indicators that impact a resident’s social and emotional well-being—engagement, interaction, and mobility. We can notify staff if a resident is spending too much time alone, or there is a dangerous situation. Our digital companion will be able to give visibility and insights, help identify others who may have been affected. With a digital companion the list of use cases for helping is numerous.

Our digital companion quietly works in the background gathering data to give staff more real-time information about the residents in their care. Care providers can only be in so many places at once. Adding a digital companion provides a virtual extra set of eyes on each resident for the staff. With staff and care providers being able to receive a notification when a resident has not moved in a while, or has not participated in an  activity or class, for example is a game changer.  

The BUKI technology provides facility administration more information about what is going on in and around the resident community. A Digital Companion can benefit the entire operation by providing a 3 pronged solution:

1:  A Safety & Security and Health & Wellness Companion  for the resident

2:  A 24/7 Visibility and instant response capability for each staff member

3:  A real time Visibility and management  platform for Executives and Operations

BUKI powered by Loud-Hailer drives actionable data that is:

Real-time for monitoring and alerting

Historical for AI driven aggregate analysis and documented for reporting and regulatory filing

Always on for environmental emergency situations, health or medical situations (like COVID), or when any external events could negatively impact the community.
