3. How can caregivers use Jitterbug Smart phones to keep an eye on their loved ones?
Jitterbug Smart is a great way to keep an eye on your loved ones. It provides you with a way to see what they’re doing and who they’re talking to. It’s also a great way to make sure they’re following doctor’s orders and taking their medications properly.Older adults may be looking for a new way to direct new-found carers. While Jitterbug gets a high ratings at Amazon and ShortListing, it suffered from one major drawback – cost. $39 per month isn’t cheap for something that can keep a loved one safe. As a company, we have a goal of providing affordable products for our patients and loved ones. It’s these $39 and $79 plans that help us reach that goal.
While the Jitterbug website is pretty straightforward, the product and the service aren’t quite as innovative. The Jitterbug website does mention that the service is inclusive of Urgent Care and the ability to keep an eye on elderly loved ones, but the service isn’t quite as comprehensive as other monitoring devices. Jitterbug allows you to call the Jitterbug hotline 24/7 for any concerns. It’s also accessible via their mobile app for especially extra convenient assistance. Who isn’t going to want to know when their loved ones are calling? When Jitterbug starts to feel restrictive, however, the company innovates a service that’s just as convenient.
The site lists additional findings for monitoring loved ones during additional activities. For example, according to the site, “When your loved one stops participating in social activities, Jitterbug will email you.” There’s also a “Watching Your Loved One” function, where you can watch your loved one’s health status and heart rate throughout the day. Since Jitterbug’s main service is for monitoring heart rate, it also allows you to monitor when they’re at their highest heart rate. Jitterbug is also unique in that it provides live alerts, however they only notify you when your loved one becomes extremely restless or overstimulated. This allows you to keep an eye on your loved one without interrupting their day.
