Funding Conference in the Ariège department chooses local players to protect its seniors


As part of a call for projects, the Funding Conference of the Ariège department has chosen Occitania-based company Telegrafik and its innovative teleassistance service, Otono-me. The goal? To offer 30 elderly people aged 60 and over, living alone at their homes in Ariège, to test the Otono-me service for 8 months free of charge. 

The association of local experts for preventing loss of autonomy and promoting home care in Occitania

The service will be offered in collaboration with “Le Cantou”, an association offering services to individuals based in Tarascon sur Ariège. Much more reassuring than conventional emergency call devices, this new generation teleassistance provides day and night protection for the elderly and peace of mind for their families.

“The service is for families with a loved one who is losing their independence. This family member lives at home as usual, they are safe, and their relatives are reassured. If one day they encounter a problem, an alert is sent automatically. And if the family worries because their loved one does not answer the phone, they can simply log in to their smartphone app and find out if everything is alright,” says Pierre Thos, project manager at Telegrafik. Our ambition? To enable older people to live safely at home for longer and give them delay going into a nursing home.

The Ariège Funding Conference supports local project, Otono-me

At the end of 2017, the Funding Conference of the Ariège department launched a call for projects for measures to prevent and reduce loss of autonomy for the elderly. This subsidised project will contribute to improving the quality of life for senior citizens in the area. As part of this initiative, vulnerable people are being asked to participate by testing the service free of charge for 8 months at home.

“This project is part of our association’s core actions: to provide the necessary support for the elderly in our region to develop with them a project to improve their everyday lives and commit to working with respect for their lifestyles of those of their families. says Elodie Privat, director of the “Le Cantou” association.

If you are interested in participating in this project and wish to benefit from this innovative solution free of charge, please contact Anne-Cécile at Telegrafik directly on: +33 05 82 95 50 52 or by sending an email to anne-cecile.andre@telegrafik.eu.

Availability is limited to the first 30 applicants.

About the Funding Conference

The Funding Conference is a measure resulting from Law No 2015-1776 of 28 December 2015 relating to adapting society for an ageing population. As an institutional coordinating body, the departmental Funding Conference aims to define a coordinated programme for financing individual and collective actions to prevent loss of autonomy, in addition to legal or regulatory benefits. It brings together the sector’s key players around shared actions and strategies in order to create clearer and more coherent answers for the elderly and focuses in particular on:

– Assignment of an autonomy package granted by a multi-year contract of objectives and means (CPOM) by the departmental council to assisted living communities (new denomination of sheltered housing);

– Coordination and endorsement of preventative actions implemented by home care and support services (SAAD) and multifunction home care and support services (SPASAD);

– Support for family carers;

– Development of other individual or collective preventative actions.

Press release: 9 April 2018

An innovative solution that promotes support within the home for vulnerable people, ensuring their complete safety

 

Sophia Antipolis based company, Allovie, and its partner Telegrafik are launching Allovie Otono-me, which aims to reinforce the autonomy of ageing persons in the home. This new remote assistance solution, based on motion detectors installed in the home, allows for increased safety of vulnerable people who live alone, while also keeping them in touch with their loved ones.

Allovie Otono-me brings together the expertise from two areas: remote assistance and data analysis

Allovie specialises in remote assistance all over France and, for over ten years, has been a supplier of a solution, which includes a watch and a pendant allowing the detection of a variety of dangerous situations at an ageing person’s home, triggering an alarm if needed. The person is put in touch with an operator 24/7 should they suffer a dizzy spell, an accident, a fall, or simply because they need to talk to someone or be reassured.

Telegrafik, on the other hand, is an innovative enterprise that provides online activity monitoring services for families, who have a loved one living at home alone. “Our artificial intelligence can detect the moments when a vulnerable, ageing, or impaired person is in need of additional assistance.“ explains Carole Zisa-Garat, founder of Telegrafik.

Thanks to this new partnership, the  Allovie Otono-me service will be completing the Allovie remote assistance systems range to improve home living conditions, and reassure families.

Allovie and Telegrafik are convinced that remote assistance is a viable alternative, which allows seniors to remain in their home for as long as possible.

Allovie Otono-me service operation

The Allovie Otono-me service is based on discrete detectors, which are installed in the elderly person’s home. These detectors allow the person’s daily routines to be recorded and analysed, which then allows unusual activity to be detected. In this event, alerts are automatically generated at Allovie’s help desk, which operates 24/7. See an illustrated description of the service here

This solution increases the elderly person’s safety because an alert is triggered automatically, without the need for the SOS button to be pressed on the person’s pendant or watch. Allovie Otono-me can also be employed for people who have cognitive difficulties, such as those suffering from Alzheimer’s, who have little or no ability to voluntarily press the SOS button if a problem arises.

For helpers or loved ones, the dedicated Allovie Otono-me app brings a range of information on the elderly person’s pace of life (wake up time, time spent in each room, absence from home, personalised notifications linked to the elderly person’s habits, etc…).

This all-in-1 Allovie Otono-me solution is available now by monthly subscription.

Allovie is a recognised care service provider since 2008, which allows the recipient to benefit from a potential 50% tax credit on their income declaration.

 

About Allovie

A limited company (SARL) with 60000 € in capital, based at Sophia Antipolis in the maritime Alps, Allovie has made remote assistance its single core activity. Allovie is listed with the departmental General Councils, the principal CLICs (Local Gerontology Information and Coordination Centres) and CCASs (Local Social Welfare Centres) in France. A recipient of the service can be put in touch with the Allovie help desk 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Over 20 operators are in contact with service recipients and their loved ones in the event of a dizzy spell, an accident, a fall, or simply because the person needs to talk or be reassured. With a wealth of experience built over many years in this field, Allovie services 7000 subscribers, testifying to their savoir-faire and competence. Their technicians are a rich resource to draw upon when it comes to resolving any issues relating to the connection or operation of the various remote assistance solutions.

As part of a call for projects, the Funding Conference of the Hauts-de-Seine department has chosen Telegrafik, a company specialising in data analysis for the best home care, to offer 100 elderly people of at least 60 years of age, living alone at their homes in Hauts-de-Seine, to test the Otono-me service for 9 months free of charge.

Combining safety and enrichment of social ties thanks to Otono-me, the next generation telecare service

“This project will allow 100 people and their families to benefit from Otono-me, a much safer service than the classic wearable call buttons. If you are interested in taking part in the project free of charge, please contact us!” says Carole Zisa-Garat, CEO of Telegrafik.

The service will include 24/7 availability of the Securitas Telecare professional monitoring platform, the installation of discrete non-intrusive sensors at home and a mobile app.

“With the app, families can connect from their phone or computer.

Thanks to Otono-me, the elderly person can carry on living as normal, he/she is safer and his/her family and friends are reassured,” says Pierre Thos, Project Manager at Telegrafik.

The Hauts-de-Seine Funding Conference supports Otono-me

In the middle of the year, the Funding Conference of the Hauts-de-Seine department launched a call for projects for measures to prevent and reduce loss of autonomy for the elderly.

Active Tranquillity, improved home safety for vulnerable people while staying in touch with their loved ones

Securitas and Telegrafik have decided to combine their expertise in the areas of telecare and actimetrics to launch Active Tranquillity, a comprehensive service for vulnerable people living alone at home to stay safe, while keeping in touch with their loved ones.

Active Tranquillity, 24/7 protection for vulnerable people at home

“Active Tranquillity aims to protect elderly people living alone at home more effectively than with an emergency call button alone” says Thibault Urcun, Customer Services Representative for Securitas Telecare, the Securitas Group’s business area specialising in care solutions for isolated people.

Securitas Téléassistance

Securitas is an international player in the field of remote monitoring and the leader in private security in France. With this recognised expertise, Securitas Telecare was created in 2013 to specialise in the protection of isolated people and manage all types of alerts 24/7 (fall, isolation, discomfort, vertigo, anxiety attack, technical malfunction of equipment, etc.) Securitas Telecare has decided to enhance its service offering for the elderly by partnering with Telegrafik, the expert in the detection of anomalies in an elderly person’s activity. Thus the Securitas Active Tranquillity service was born.

 

The elderly person’s loved ones can also download a smartphone app:

Family and friends can quickly make sure that all is well and set up personalised notifications to detect when their loved one needs more support. Active Tranquillity already gives almost 300 people peace of mind on a daily basis, and I am delighted that we are now making this service available throughout France in partnership with Securitas Telecare,” says Carole Zisa-Garat, Founder of Telegrafik.

In Europe, nearly 30 million people over the age of 65 live alone: it is in this context that since 2013, Telegrafik has been working to offer safe solutions, based on the latest Internet technologies available.

 

About  Telegrafik

On the border of the Internet of Things and the Silver Economy, Telegrafik offers connected services for the care of vulnerable people at home and remote monitoring of patients. The start-up has received numerous awards and was the winner of BPI France’s Digital Innovation Competition in 2017.

Press release: 30th Jan. 2017

Telegrafik speeds up its growth, raises 1 million Euros

The startup will focus on expanding sales of its innovative solutions that help the elderly keep living safely in their homes.

Telegrafik, a French Artificial Intelligence and Big Data startup based in Toulouse, just raised 1 million Euros to expand sales of Otono-me, an innovative telecare service.

The €1m deal was led by the societally sensitive funds Citizen Capital, Aviva Impact Investing France (managed by “le Comptoir de l’Innovation”), the financing cooperative “Initiatives pour une Economie Solidaire”, as well as the “Business Angels des Grandes Écoles” network, the Financière de Blacailloux family office, individual Business Angels and BPI France Financement.

 

The goal: addressing the ageing population in developed countries

In 2015, Telegrafik launched Otono-me, a service that revolutionizes the telecare industry.

« Until now, solutions to protect the elderly in their homes were limited to emergency call buttons. We can now offer new solutions to provide increased security for the elderly. We are using the latest technologies to better protect the elderly, while reassuring their close relatives. », explains Telegrafik’s CEO, Carole Zisa-Garat.

How does Otono-me work?

Connected sensors are strategically located in the elderly’s home. If the elderly’s activity is abnormal, a 24/7 hotline is automatically notified. The hotline will then contact the elderly to assess the problem, and dispatch an emergency team if needed. A smartphone app also enables close relatives to discreetly check in: this allows them to make sure everything is alright, without intruding.

Otono-me widens the ageing and telecare industries offers.

At the core of Otono-me is Telegrafik’s artificial intelligence. Sensors’ data are collected and analyzed in real-time by the AI algorithms.

 

Telegrafik speeds up its growth, sets ambitious goals

Telegrafik team wants its offerings to be distributed widely by 2020. They will also keep designing new solutions to help the elderly and their caregivers, both family and professionals, and to address the e-health and care markets.

Telegrafik’s people are passionate about new technologies, and work hand in hand with a large network of experts and partners. Telegrafik plans to double its headcount in the next coming 2 years.
