A new solution from Phoniro provides video visits to the elderly living at home, so their carers can offer supervision and support whenever it’s needed, while reducing the risk of infection due to the coronavirus.

Phoniro, a leading provider of welfare technology to the elderly, swiftly developed Phoniro Video Visits to support in-home care in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Elderly people living at home are often in great need of supervision but are also at high risk of infection. With Video Visits, carers can conduct digital visits with two-way communication.

Video Visits can also help reduce a sense of isolation for elderly people and dedicated staff can be appointed to perform the visits, which increases peace of mind and consistency of care.

With Video Visits, people communicate with home service personnel using a computer with a webcam, a tablet or smartphone. The interface for the user is very simple and intuitive and has large, clear buttons to start and end the visit.

All visits are logged so that they can be followed up if needed.No visits are recorded and no unauthorized person can take part in the visits. They are also encrypted and security is very high.

Phoniro, an ASSA ABLOY Group company, is already the market leader in digital night-time monitoring via camera. Like this and its other services, Video Visits is easily linked to the welfare technology platform Phoniro Care, so the solution is quick and easy to install.

“We know how challenging things are for in-home care at this time,” says Pontus Björnsson, CEO Phoniro. “This solution ensures that elderly people receive the supervision they need without risking the spread of infection. The simplicity of its implementation is vital in enabling it to quickly be put into use.”
