New Technology Assists Independent Seniors
Date:6/17/2009

SOUTH BEND, Ind., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Modern technology is affecting the lives of everyone, not just the young and the trendy. The unique needs of elders and their sometimes faraway caregivers presents opportunities for the unique application of new technologies. Consider the problem of an elderly person living independently but still requiring occasional reminders to take medication, to visit the doctor or to eat a meal. Family members or other caregivers aren't always available to provide these timely reminders.

Priority Computer Services, Inc. of South Bend, Indiana, has created a way to bring the elderly and their caregivers together and maintain a personal touch. Priority Time Reminder is the innovative new product that allows a caregiver to remotely remind and care for a loved one's needs via software that's located right in the loved one's home and speaks in the caregiver's actual voice.

Priority Time Reminder is convenient and simple to use. The software is installed on any PC or comes installed on a mini notebook computer with a speaker attached using a standard USB cable. Pre-recorded messages and reminders in the caregiver's own voice can help remind a senior to take medicine, keep an appointment or anything that comes up. Messages can be scheduled to repeat at regular intervals ranging from minutes or hours to months or years. Each day can start and end with personalized messages of "Good morning" and "Good night," while special reminders like doctor visits can easily be changed to fit a specific date and time. The personal voice application of this software allows for a loved one to feel like the caregiver is in the same room while decreasing the feeling of disconnect that so many seniors experience when a caregiver is far away.

In addition to this cutting-edge technology, Priority Computer Services also provides cutting-edge simplicity and ease of use. With remote access to make changes or u
