Some of us still own a landline phone. One popular belief is that the independently-powered landlines can survive a blackout, which is important in an emergency situation. Yet, cell phones are taking the place of landline phones and offering functions and mobility to our changing lifestyle. They all work with the CareRinger reassurance system. It’s just a matter of choice to you.
CareRinger allows seniors to let their loved ones know they are fine by answering a check-in call at the time of their choosing. It has to do with a happy ending in mind, as opposed to possible helpless situations. It shares a philosophy with the wellness movement, such as suggesting a healthy lifestyle for seniors to achieve quality of life rather than treatment of illness for longevity reason alone.
CareRinger is NOT meant to replace the panic button. On the other hand, it can serve as a reminder for you and your loved ones. It will let them know when you are not responding to a reminder call from CareRinger.
The simplest way to respond to a CareRinger call is to answer the call. CareRinger can call you multiple times so you are aware of the calls. You just have to make sure your answering machine or voice mail is not picking up the phone for you.
You can check-in early too. For example, here are 3 ways for you to do that:
- Call CareRinger to cancel the next check-in call
- Say “Alexa, I got it” 1
- Turn off a smart light
Like using a timer for your lights, you can program a smart plug to turn on a lightbox to remind you of your CareRinger call. When you turn off that smart light, CareRinger knows you don’t need the check-in call from CareRinger this time.
