Description

*** This is our app for older adults. It pairs with the Dooinwell Link app for the rest of the family ***

Dooinwell helps families ensure an older adult living on their own is not having an unnoticed event in-between calls or visits. Dooinwell relies on the active engagement of the older adult and alerts families if a safety issue is suspected.


HOW IT WORKS FOR THE PARENT/ OLDER ADULT

- SAFETY CHECK-INS: Your parent has a new routine: checking in. A few times a day, during specific time slots, your parent submits an in-app check-in.
- OUTINGS MONITORING: Your parent can register their planned activities before leaving home and set their maximum expected duration. When back, they confirm being safely back home.
- HANDS-FREE SAFETY: With “Hey Siri” near an iPhone, iPad or HomePod, your parent can request your assistance with their voice only, without the need to physically reach a device. A training mode is available to learn and practice the voice command.
- OPTIONAL KIOSK-MODE: for parents not in the habit of checking their phone, or not familiar with using a phone or an app, you can use a dedicated iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad on a stand. This triggers special features that helps your parent successfully comply and also ease access to the app (no need to launch the app but just to touch the screen).


PRIVACY-FRIENDLY

- Information submitted by your parent are not disclosed to you unless we suspect a safety issue. The app won't change your relationship and you’ll continue to learn what your parent has been up to through your calls and visits.
- Relatives only get to see check-in confirmations if no safety issues have been suspected.
- Only a suspicious situation momentarily unlocks access to private information that helps you assess whether there are reasons to worry: device geolocation, declared out-of-home activity, expected activity duration, etc

HOW IT WORKS FOR RELATIVES

- Always in the know: through the app or right on the watch face of your Apple Watch, you’re always in capacity to confirm we’ve got a fresh update from your parent. It will help you worry less in-between your calls and visits.
- Smart alerts: you get an alert if something raises doubt on your parent safety. Dooinwell alerts are delivered to your iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, and - when critical - they display and play a sound even on a device that is in Silent or Do Not Disturb mode.
- Well informed, only when you need to: in addition to sending an alert, a suspicious situation momentarily unlocks access to information that helps you assess whether there are reasons to worry. Access the latest known status and location of your parent's devices (only until the situation gets resolved), and discover what your parent was planning to do if he registered an outing. 

Dooinwell is a subscription-based service. Available rates and free trial options will be displayed during the sign-up process. 

The Dooinwell service is not an emergency alert system. The safety of your parent primarily requires their capacity to contact emergency services at all times.

What’s New

Version 1.2.7

We're making changes to the sound prompts of the app's kiosk-mode:
- before 10AM, there won't be a single beep when a check-in period starts.
- over the last 30 minutes of a check-in period, the app will initially beep at a slower pace, up to a maximum of 1 beep/ minute during the final 10 minutes.
