Using Technology to Disrupt In-Home Healthcare

CMAG team is always looking for ways to help our clients!



YOU HAVE ALTERNATIVES

Are you caught between the high cost of in-home health services and not wanting to place your loved one in an assisted living facility? Do you feel like you’ve explored every possible solution and none seem to feel right? While it’s true that individuals can apply for assistance, paying for in-home services through the Community Personal Assistance Services (CPAS) program, we have found that many individuals do not qualify, the process takes too long, and/or families could not afford the high price tag.


COST OF IN-HOME HEALTHCARE

In 2020, the national average cost for healthcare services in the home is $4,481.00 per month according to the Genworth 2020 Cost of Care Survey. For many that is not an affordable expense. Sending your loved one to an assisted living facility comes at a hefty cost as well. So how do you do what's best for your loved one without going into debt?


THE START OF WELLNESS TECHNOLOGY

This dilemma got The CMAG Team brainstorming on how we could assist individuals in affordably obtaining the services they need. From there, the CMAG Health Solutions’ Wellness Technology Division was developed. What we’ve created is an innovative, affordable option that you may have not yet considered.


THE CMAG REMOTE CAREGIVERS SYSTEM

Under the leadership of Spencer Garrett—with his degree in psychology, 10+ years in the home security industry, and 5 years working to assist individuals with disabilities living in the community—the Wellness Tech Team has partnered with Alarm.com to develop a comprehensive alternative to the high cost of in-home services: CMAG Remote Caregiver Systems. Families can decrease the number of hours that staff are needed and fill those gaps with secure sensor-based technology. These devices can notify caregivers of access to medication cabinets, movement throughout the home, floods, falls, and even a loved one’s whereabouts if they were to leave in the family vehicle (with or without the use of cameras). The CMAG Remote Caregiver System can save families $1,000’s a month!


Families can rent or purchase this customizable system by going to the CMAG website or calling our office at 410-517-CMAG (2624).
