Why Heritage Communities is using Science and AI 

Video Monitoring

AUGi’s unblinking eye captures moments—the gentle rise from a favorite chair, the midnight wanderings, the subtle shifts that tell a story. It’s more than watchful care; it’s connection.

Artificial Intelligence Algorithms

Behind the lens, artificial intelligence awakens. Algorithms analyze patterns, detect anomalies, and anticipate needs. When your parent’s steps falter or their routine changes, AUGi alerts our care team to pay attention to the variance. It’s the early warning system that guides our team to engage compassionately and confidently to keep our residents safe.

Real-Time Fall Prevention

Falls—the silent adversaries in memory care. AUGi stands guard, predicting instability, and acting swiftly. Imagine an invisible hand steadying your loved one, preventing accidents before they occur. Because AUGi doesn’t just react – it anticipates, preserving dignity and well-being – our care team has more information to meet your loved ones needs earlier than ever.

Alerts Staff Instantly

AUGi doesn’t hesitate. When it senses urgency, it notifies our care team through alarms and notifications within a cell phone app. Whether it’s a midnight wander or an unexpected movement, AUGi ensures swift action. Each care associate wears a beacon lanyard that AUGi can detect when the associate enters the apartment. In fact, studies in other communities who have installed AUGi show that care associate engagement actually increases.

Early Fall Detection

Statistics tell us that falls are common. AUGi defies statistics. It detects shifts in movement, irregular patterns, and potential hazards. When every second counts, AUGi acts swiftly to alert care associates.

Tracks Movement Patterns and Trends

AUGi learns rhythms—the morning shuffle, the afternoon pause, the evening return to bed. It adapts, becoming attuned to unique needs. The support team behind AUGi monitors data patterns that provide a window into your loved one’s routines. When they see anomalies, they notify the community care team so we can engage early to evaluate potential underlying causes.

More Informed Fall Response

Without AUGi, our team, in an abundance of caution, may send a resident to the hospital for evaluation of potential head trauma. With AUGi, our team can review the video and better understand what happened to make a more informed choice resulting in fewer unnecessary hospital visits.
