As most of us know, demand for elderly care services continues to climb higher as each new generation lives longer than the previous one. Norada Corporation has teamed up with Helium, also known as the People’s Network, to enhance communications between at-home elderly care managers, seniors, and care givers. Norada solves this challenge by irradicating the need for a smartphone. Instead, as each caregiver completes their service, they tap a button on their ID badge to automatically log location details to the central cloud database using asset tracking technology from Abeeway. To make all of this possible, Norada needed a long-range IoT wireless network, and Helium fit the bill perfectly. As the fastest-growing wireless network, The People’s Network enables cost efficiencies of only $1 per badge per year.
