This skill can help you with recording your health vitals, setting & receiving reminders for the medicines you take, reach out to your doctor and receive advice from your doctor, get you status of your health and specific areas you need to improve upon, etc. - all you need to do is ask this cylindrical shaped, Alexa, your intelligent personal assistant.

Cooey’s Alexa Skill lets you request your preferred type of query and that’s exactly the reason why bringing this skill to Alexa makes a lot of sense. If you make this a regular part of your daily routine, you are going to see some serious results.

Now, with your hands-free commands, you are able to manage your health, organize your personal health record without having to touch your mobile device, which is awesome. “Cooey in Alexa” controls your device with voice commands, that you find in your Cooey app!

Each command gets fine-tuned, as it learns by itself, through machine learning. It doesn’t get tired of repetitive tasks. It possesses an infinite capacity for learning and memorising each AI-driven command.

How does it make your ageing parent’s life more comfortable?

Let’s talk about why you should consider making use of this technology.

An overwhelming percentage of young family members have difficulty caring for their loved ones. Cooey in Alexa is a wonderful tool for today’s family, especially where there is an ageing parent who needs constant monitoring & support who invariably gets lost out in the complexities involved in logistics of care.

Given a choice, the older adults would prefer to stay put in their homes rather than look at other options of staying away. It is where they feel most comfortable, safe, and happy. All they need is a solution that helps them to reach out to their caregivers & family members when in need.

And they want simplified answers to their problems. In today’s world, talking is cheap and easier way to communicate because there’s so much that can happen around it.


Say, your parent (Tim) talks to Cooey in Alexa “I’m feeling dizzy today” and you instantly receive a message in MyCooey Kin app saying “Tim is feeling dizzy, you may want to call and find out.”

Yes, Cooey in Alexa empowers your ageing parent to call you or his/her caregiver, send an alert, seek advice, receive reminders as the case may be. It’s a super easy way to connect with, and it’s one of the most cost-effective techniques too.

Conclusion

There is growing need to create an environment that is highly desirable to most senior citizens; an environment that makes their life simpler. Family members and caregivers will need a new gen tech solution to do the best job possible so that they stay informed, coordinated, and most importantly, connected.

The vision here is to transform senior care, in-home care and illness that catch up with ageing. MyCooey platform with Cooey in Alexa makes it easier and empowers the end user, be it a patient, a caregiver, or a family member, from a laptop or smartphone to execute the tasks at hand proficiently.

Apple Siri, Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Microsoft Cortana are just a few examples of voice-powered personal assistants that help you interact with a platform or a device to get your routine tasks done.

From these virtual assistants to self-driving vehicles, AI & machine learning is slowly but steadily making their way into our lives.

WHY AI WILL HAVE PROFOUND IMPACT?

Are you being told that AI is the future? Might be true. But there are innovative start-ups that uses matured AI aspects practically today as well.

While it might seem ridiculously simple, you can actually apply this concept or principle in…

Well, the answer is simple “BEFORE IT TAKES PLACE”!
Anyone who’s been there realizes the benefits of being the most prepared on the block. 
The good news is that you have the solution at your fingertips. One of the things that most of us carry at all times is our phones, so why don’t we make them smarter?

MyCooey, A CAREGIVER'S SMART COMPANION!

What’s that one thing that would make caregivers’ day more satisfying?

More often than not, the answer to this question would revolve around figuring out ways to make the lives of the ones, who they care for, more comfortable.

According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, caregiver jobs are projected to grow 69% by 2020, much faster than the average job, thanks to the aging of the baby boomers and increase in non-face-to-face services provided by physician or other qualified healthcare provider.


A caregiver is someone who offers enormous social worth by caring for loved ones and unfailingly assumes the responsibility for health or safety of their clients / residents.

And as residents, nothing can be more satisfying than be in a space where their care needs are taken care of without having to ask for it.

To provide good care, caregivers must have a plan to support the needs, preferences, and interests of their residents/clients.

Caregivers have to be there to make sure their clients get up…
