Voice assistants in care

Voice assistants, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, have long become part of our daily lives. They help us plan our day, go shopping or control smart home systems. But did you know that voice assistants also play an important role in care?
The use of voice assistants in care offers numerous advantages for those in need of care, relatives, care facilities and nursing staff. Here are some examples:

For those in need of care

Voice assistants help those in need of care to live more independently and to feel safer. They remind them to take their medication, to attend upcoming doctor's appointments or to drink enough. Movement reminders also help to prevent falls and maintain mobility. An intelligent assistant serves as a companion when needed by talking to those in need of care and helping them to orientate themselves and assess their surroundings.

For relatives

Relatives who take care of those in need of care are relieved by voice assistants. They monitor the current health status of those in need of care and receive notifications when something changes. This allows relatives to ensure that their loved ones are well cared for even when they cannot be physically present.

For care facilities

Care facilities also benefit from voice assistants: They facilitate communication between nursing staff and those in need of care. They also help with social needs, such as additional protection against loneliness and isolation by providing constant companionship and entertainment. Movement reminders and fall monitoring help to maintain the mobility of those in need of care.

For nursing staff

Voice assistants support nursing staff in numerous tasks. They provide professional care advice and help to check the vital signs of those in need of care. This relieves the nursing staff and allows them to concentrate on the essential aspects of care.

For our voice assistance project VIVAIcare, we needed a device that could keep up with our innovative standard. In divVoice, we found a partner at eye level. We particularly liked the fact that divVoice gave our project wings with its own design ideas. The coordination and interaction were very pleasant and, above all, easy from day one. Many thanks for the commitment, the high quality and the uncomplicated cooperation!
