Family CareSpace is the senior industry’s first combined resident & staff management platform integrated with secure social media to foster transparency
Family CareSpace LLC
Family CareSpace (FCS) was formed in 2007 and provides a senior living industry-first application platform based on real-time accurate location of staff, residents, guests, and key assets in a senior care setting. The accurate location data is the foundation to provide meaningful applications, including the mobile CareProvider App (CPa), Secure Family Portal (SFP) and the Administration Dashboard (AD). The platform fosters transparent care while significantly improving the bottom line, increasing community attraction for residents and their families, and reducing risk for all.
McCoy assembled a gifted development team that designed the platform in response to unmet needs identified over a 4-year period from owners of communities, care staff, operations management, and most important, families and residents. The result is the FCS platform we have today and the growing team dedicated to the continual process of listening to ways to improve, refine, enhance, and deliver capabilities for all involved in the care of loved ones and their families.
The platform addresses senior living communities and seniors at home and is well-positioned to take advantage of a growing need for transparency and connectivity in this current pandemic and moving forward. 77 million Baby Boomers are expected to retire over the next 2 decades, doubling the number of assisted living beds by 2030 and exponentially growing the Home Care market. Within this growth, U.S. seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s and other dementia related diseases will grow from 11% of U.S. seniors (5.1M) to 14% (8.2M) by 2030. Family CareSpace has industry leading and proven capabilities that help keep those that suffer from dementia and others needing various types of care, safer with a higher quality of life.
Family members love the configurable Secure Family Portal! It provides an unprecedented ability for a family to see where a loved one is located and their movement in the community even if the community is quarantined. The family can check the activity schedule, and view care staff updates, pictures, and videos along with private posts from other family members . The Secure Family Portal allows connection through the web where available anywhere in the world and eases the anxiety that often accompanies the decision to place a loved one in a senior care community.
The CareProvider App is an in-community mobile application that runs on Apple smart devices. The CPa provides robust custom alert notifications, and resident, staff, and key asset location reporting, while delivering a rich media platform for creating ‘in the moment’ resident photos and videos that get vetted by the community prior to being made available to the Family Portal. (Support for Android is available if required.)
The Administration Dashboard provides robust reporting and day to day functions to add/edit users and sensor infrastructure, alert statistics, show actual care minutes delivered by staff compared to care plans, and several other areas to support the community and business aspects of the operation.
FCS can be readily retrofitted into existing senior living communities with its wireless sensors and minimal use of cabling. Furthermore, FCS’s cloud-based servers store and manage all information, freeing up communities to stay focused on their mission while FCS manages the technology.
The platform was designed, developed, tested, and proven at an Assisted Living memory care community over 4 years. After extensive testing and development, the platform was released to the general market in early winter of 2020 with great interest, especially given the impacts the pandemic is having on senior living communities. Several Assisted Living companies are reviewing FCS’s solution, with momentum growing each day to move to this innovative platform to meet the current demands of senior living, and be positioned for well beyond.
The future is very bright for Family CareSpace; we are meeting very real and pressing challenges that real-time accurate location based applications solve for senior living communities, their residents and families. We are a founding member of the Digital Twin Consortium Heathcare working group (https://www.digitaltwinconsortium.org) and are dedicated to bring meaningful solutions for all involved who care for seniors and their families.
Family CareSpace is dedicated to serving senior living with transparent and engaging applications for the betterment of all involved; seniors, families, friends, care staff, and the senior living industry.
Joe, a family member of a resident that used the Secure Family Portal, shares his and his family’s experience of how important the Secure Family Portal was for them, and how it brought the family together (regardless of distance) in caring for their father.
When the button on the staff badge was pressed, within seconds, staff came exactly where we were. What a great and quiet feature to have in a Care Community. They use a very innovative mobile nurse call that is triggered by a button on the staff tag. The alerts indicating location, go to mobile devices and can be handled by closest staff to the alert. A digital record is kept and alert statistics available. What was really powerful is the flexibility to create resident specific custom alerts quickly. Incredibly important to avoid unwanted situations occurring. I can’t stress enough, I saw it in action, not just a presentation. It works as advertised and I haven’t seen anything else like it. “
Ultimately, Family Care Space has a positive impact on residents and families alike. What better way to build and maintain census!!! "
