Free Assistive Technology for Caregivers

The Paul Freeman Financial Security Program at the Knoebel Institute for Healthy Aging is excited to present this opportunity to help caregivers and their care recipient. We are recruiting participant pairs (informal caregivers + care recipient) for a program evaluation on Routinify’s WellAssist program, which uses technology to aid caregivers and older adults. For more information on Routinify learn more at www.routinify.com.

Participation will include:

  1. Receiving  Routinify’s  WellAssist  devices: tablet and smart watch (and as needed vital devices: BP Cuff, Oximeter, Scale, Thermometer).
  2. Completing a pre-test.
  3. Using the WellAssist  technology and programming  at your discretion for three months.
  4. Completing a post-test.

Individuals who participate in the program and complete both surveys in their entirety will have the option to keep the Routinify WellAssist devices free of charge at the end of the evaluation.

We are seeking participant pairs made up of an informal caregiver and a care recipient to complete two surveys over the course of three months.  An  informal caregiver  is someone who provides care to a family member or loved one, typically without compensation. This care may include assisting with personal care, health care coordination, and/or household tasks. A  care recipient  is someone who receives assistance from an informal caregiver in their daily activities.

Interested participants should email the Paul Freeman Financial Security Program at FinancialSecurity@du.edu. Interested participants will receive a brief, two-minute screener survey and consent form  before officially registering and onboarding  with Routinify.
