Routinify, whose digital platform helps seniors and disabled people live at home, is now offering its WellAssist TeleCare service directly to New Brunswick families.
With headquarters in Denver and Rothesay, N.B., Routinify launched two years ago, selling a digital platform that could monitor seniors and make family and healthcare professionals aware of their health and safety.
The company has marketed its WellAssist TeleCare service for the past two years through home care organizations and academic partnerships. Now it is allowing older New Brunswickers and their families to buy the service directly.
“New Brunswick has an aging population and from the very start our mission was to help support those aging adults access the care they need,” said Pat Kelly, Routinify’s Founder and CEO, in a statement. “We know that 21 percent of New Brunswickers over the age of 65 are homebound. The pandemic increased this remarkably and made it even more difficult to access the healthcare they need.”
The statement said the company has added functions to its WellAssist platform in the past two years, such as pulse oximeters, blood pressure cuffs, thermometers, weight scales, glucometers, stethoscopes and electrocardiograms.
Routinify also connects its users with community supports and digital healthcare providers, such as eVisitNB, Medicine Shoppe, Comfort Keepers, Meals on Wheels, and Health and Wellness coaches.
