WithYou is the easy way for families and older adults to stay in touch every day.
WithYou reminds the user to Check-In. You just tap to Check-In. WithYou lets your contacts know you’ve Checked-In, and they can respond easily. If you miss your Check-In, WithYou alerts your contacts that there may be a problem, and supports them in following up with a text message or phone call.
WithYou includes simple visual messaging in the form of pre-selected images and text.
Assure Technologies grew out of the experience of Founder Kara Kytle’s personal experience with her mother’s memory loss. As she searched for technology that would give her mother the help needed to maintain her independence, Kara was surprised to find that while there are many solutions for caregivers and family, there are no products designed specifically for the user themself.
Assure Technologies designs for people who don’t want - and shouldn’t need! - caregivers. We understand that everyone needs independence and control.
We have learned that although Boomers and tech-savvy older adults are adopting smartphones and social apps, they resist apps and technology that support them as they age -- no one wants to confront the changes that come with age. So while technology has the ability to help people as they get older, these same people won’t adopt it.
We call this the Boomer App Gap.
We believe that people will adopt supportive technology if it is also social. We are validating this with our first product, WithYou, a mobile app that connects older adults and their loved ones.
As passive home monitoring systems proliferate in the 50+ market, we remain passionate about using technology to connect and empower people. Contact Us anytime if you have questions or would like more information.
