ElliQ supports happy, healthy living for seniors and has been proven to make life a little easier for those who are aging independently. How, you might ask? Let’s bring the digital home care companion features to life by spending a day in the life of ElliQ…and you!
9am - Morning Routine
Starting the day right is so important. ElliQ greets the user and offers a daily check-in each morning. This small act makes an individual feel cared for and important. The morning routine tends to evolve as ElliQ gets to know the person’s preferences. For example, for some, it may include the weather and news headlines - and for others, ElliQ may offer an inspirational quote.
10am - A relaxing guided yoga session
With a vast library of on-demand exercise videos, ElliQ often motivates users to participate in activities like cardio, tai chi, and yoga. In this example, ElliQ suggests that we join her for some relaxing, but physically active yoga!
These pre-recorded fitness sessions offer a more relaxed and private environment that can be enjoyed at your own pace, with varying degrees of difficulty to choose from depending on how you’re feeling on any given day.
12pm - Hydration reminder & lunch discussion
Hydration is an extremely important part of overall health, but it can be easy to forget to regularly drink water. ElliQ may offer a quick hydration reminder around lunchtime and encourage you to have a glass of refreshing H2O.
Over lunch, users may want to take advantage of some of the many entertainment features that ElliQ offers. Whether it’s small talk, playing music, telling a story, or playing a game, users never have to feel lonely over mealtime again.
It is important to note that ElliQ is not meant to replace human connection. But we know that it’s not always possible to be engaged with loved ones all the time. With ElliQ, there is always a presence in the home to keep users company.
1pm - Brain games
Sometime in the afternoon, ElliQ might chime in and suggest a brain game! Living at home alone can leave you susceptible to a lack of mental and physical stimulation, which can lead to a decline in health. Countless studies have shown social isolation leads to depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues.
Taking part in activities like trivia, word scrambles, and more can help you stay mentally active and sharp.
3pm - Proactive health check-in
To help you stay on top of your general health and wellbeing, ElliQ will provide a complete assessment of overall health. She will ask you about any aches and pains, mood, sleep, and more.
If you’d like, she can also record self-reported health measurements like blood pressure, heart rate, and other physical health markers. This is a great way to prioritize health and wellbeing every day in a stress-free way.
5pm - Connecting with family
Toward the end of the day, it can be nice to catch up with children and grandchildren near and far. ElliQ helps you stay connected by supporting video calls and messaging directly through the integrated screen. Everything is designed to be incredibly intuitive, so even the most technophobic user can easily navigate the system and make calls. Simply say, “ElliQ, call Kelly!”.
6pm - Wind down with music
Time to relax and luxuriate in a day well spent! Through ElliQ, you can pop on some music of your choice from her virtual jukebox. You can choose from classic rock, country, and several other stations. Tap or dance along to the tunes.
9pm - Bedtime routine
Sleep is an important part of overall health and wellbeing, and having a consistent bedtime routine is a great way to ensure a good sleep every night. ElliQ can help you build and maintain that routine by offering daily reminders to start winding down. She can encourage you to indulge in one last breathing exercise for the day. And when the user heads to bed, so does ElliQ! A convenient sleep mode ensures that she will not interrupt anyone’s beauty rest.
For seniors who choose to age in place, living an independent life can grow challenging. Staying physically strong, mentally engaged, and emotionally connected to friends and loved ones are essential to ensuring healthy and happy aging. In this blog, we spend just one day with ElliQ. With her many unique features and engaging personality, the ways are endless for how she can serve as an invaluable digital care companion day after day.
