About the Program

BoundaryCare uses a specially adapted Apple Watch to support the health, independence, and wellness of individuals with disabilities. Comfortable and fashionable to wear, the BoundaryCare Watch will send alerts to caregivers in the case of elopement, falls, medical events (seizure-like symptoms), or behavioral issues (agitation, anger). Caregivers  receive information on their phone (iPhone or Android), and download data on the web portal.

Target Audience: Parents/caregivers of vulnerable individuals who are at risk for falls, wandering, seizure-like symptoms (or other complex medical needs), or who can benefit from behavioral nudges and safeguards.

Participants Will Learn:

  1. How a wearable device can change the life of caregivers and those they care for.
  2. How BoundaryCare provides a person-centered way of supporting those who are prone to falls or wandering, or who have complex medical or behavioral needs.
  3. How BoundaryCare can provide peace of mind by being another set of eyes.
