HoME+ (Home Monitoring and Eldercare)

Home Monitoring and Eldercare (HoME+) helps seniors stay safe in their own homes.

It is a 24/7 non-invasive monitoring, alert and response system for the home safety of those elderly who are looking for an alternative to assisted living. HoME+ facilitates community ageing-in-place.

HoME+ consists of a comprehensive set of sensing equipment to monitor the safety and wellbeing of your elderly loved ones at home.

  • Four non-intrusive motion sensors to provide 100% privacy, while allowing us to monitor the safety of the senior. Sensors detect movement only and are not CCTV cameras.
  • Two panic buttons that the elderly can trigger to bring assistance from trained first aid responders.
  • A 24/7 helpline that provides users with basic first aid and psychological first aid assistance 
  • Assess the situation and  escalate to emergency services when necessary

HoME+ also allows the next-of-kin or caregiver to track the user’s movements on an app. A WhatsApp group will be created for caregivers/next-of-kins to download the app. You will be able to track your loved ones via notifications ONLY as HoME+ is 100% a non intrusive system.

Who is HoME+ suitable for?

  • Seniors living alone or those who spend a large part of the day on their own
  • Active seniors or caregivers who want a safety net to help them provide care to an elderly loved one
  • Post-surgery patients

“I collapsed in the toilet following an epilepsy attack and sustained a head injury. In panic, my mother pressed the HoME+ panic button. A Red Cross Community Responder came to my aid. She cleaned my wound with water and bandaged my head. I would recommend this service as the volunteers are responsive, helpful and friendly. They provide support and aid when needed, providing a peace of mind to family members.”
– Salinah Sani, whose mother, Samnah Kadir, is a beneficiary of HoME+ service. 

"The Red Cross’ HoME+ team kept me awake and alert by talking to me until the ambulance reached me. I feel safer with Red Cross HoME+, especially when I'm home alone…Whenever I feel that something is not right, I will reach out to press the button, I feel more safe knowing I have Singapore Red Cross HoME+ service."
Mr Don Anil, 66, HoME+ user 

Yes, I am pleased with the system and have been recommending it to my friends, ex-colleagues and aerobics/gym mates. I told them this is a "must-have" for anyone living alone or have elderly folks living on their own. With sound knowledge and a pleasant demeanour, your team has gained my trust. Thank you for overcoming my initial hesitation to admit a stranger into my home! Having you as a friend is an unexpected bonus!
– Mrs England-Lim K F
