Caregiver Aware Provides Wellness Checks for Seniors Without Disrupting Their Privacy

Canadian tech company Cognitive Systems is giving seniors the option to age in the places they love through Caregiver Aware — a system that allows caregivers to perform remote wellness checks on the people they love without intruding on their privacy.
