Introducing the iGuard My Home Care™ Environment
A Peace of Mind Home Care Product
In recent years the focus has shifted from building more care facilities in order to safely house our senior population over to the thought process of bringing the care into the senior’s home. “Aging in Place” in their homes has proven to be the best for everyone as it keeps peace in the family, keeps husbands and wives together and can add many years to their lives. But more importantly it provides dignity to our aging family members.
It’s the best and most cost-effective long-term strategy.
Governments are now realizing that the apartments that seniors stay in must be different than the typical rental apartment. Simply calling it a Seniors Living project because it may be subsidized and it has a large population of seniors doesn’t mean that the building has the proper level of care required for the aging. Buildings and suites need increased fire prevention, additional sensors for monitoring the health of seniors as well as functioning as a true seniors housing to the degree that it gives the families the comfort in knowing that their loved ones are safe.
We at iGuardFire recognize this fact and that is why we created the iGuardStove. It utilizes a special package of sensors and uses unique algorithms to provide as much useful safety and health information that we could fit into one device. It’s not just a fire prevention product but is a powerful Interactive Cognitive and Health Care Assessment tool. This is what we call a “My Home Care” Environment which is designed for the much smaller environment of the homes of seniors.
Some of the valuable information that the iGuardStove provides is:
The ability to monitor for Memory Changes over time so levels of care can be modified accordingly
Uncovers potential sleep disorders like Insomnia, sleepwalking and other dangerous sleep related disorders
Can detect disorientation issues like Mid-Night Chef or Sundowning syndrome that might indicate that Dementia may be in its beginning stages
It can alert families and caregivers to dangerous mobility issues such as a fall
It can provide data to ensure that loved ones are in fact using the stove to cook hot nutritional meals on a regular basis. Evidence of disrupted eating patterns can suggest that a more in-depth analysis be performed
Alerts for these issues can be sent via the Internet to Smart devices for immediate attention
Being able to provide this level of information and insight into your loved one’s life is very valuable to families and care workers and the iGuardStove provides this at an extremely affordable price. The My Home Care Environment truly starts to define the senior’s home as an information gathering tool and safe place where the aging population can truly find Peace of Mind in a properly equipped home suited for seniors.
The iGuardStove is so much more than just a fire prevention product. It’s crucial component to help seniors remain independent and safe at home.

HOME CARE User History Data Collection
The Collection History of Events
The History stays on your account for the last 12 months and can be used to determine patterns in memory change over time. Memory changes are slow to happen and are sometimes hard to recognize. By tracking the number of times the iGuardStove has to step in and automatically shut off the stove family and care workers can look back at this data to see how their loved ones are becoming more forgetful and thereby change the settings accordingly to add more safety.
The Daily Breakdown
You can look into each day for an overall view of what had happened for that day. In this example you can see the user had turned the stove on at 2pm and then left the kitchen area after 1 minute and the iGuardStove shut off the stove 5 minutes later at 2:06. The Reset that happened 2hrs 58 minutes later was the iGuardStove seeing the user return to the cooking area obviously having completely forgotten their cooking 3 hours earlier.
Would this information be helpful for you and your family when trying to understand if your loved one is safe at home? The answer is absolutely. And knowing that your iGuardStove stepped in to save the day gives you incredible peace of mind.
