GreatCall, Inc., the leader in enabling aging consumers and their family caregivers to stay connected, protected and in control of their lives, today introduced enhanced versions of two of its award-winning health & safety devices: the GreatCall Splash with 5Star service and the Jitterbug5. The new features augment the products’ unrivaled simplicity, proven mobility and value to family caregivers.

A study undertaken by an independent research firm for GreatCall, found that 96 percent of older Americans want to leave the house and get around more independently. “GreatCall Splash and Jitterbug5 with its dedicated 5Star connection enable our customers to do what they want, wherever they want, without worrying,” said David Inns, GreatCall’s CEO. “Our customers know that we are here to keep them connected and protected. And, by being 100 percent mobile, they take that freedom everywhere: one button, one call, one team.”

“We are constantly learning about what is meaningful to our customers,” added Inns. “They asked for the ability to wear the GreatCall Splash in the shower and for the Jitterbug cell phone to instantly connect to our network of health & safety experts. These updates meet those needs and more.”

GreatCall Splash
The GreatCall Splash is designed to withstand up to 30 minutes in three feet of water. “We also responded to the requests for feature and ease-of-use upgrades and created a drop-in charging cradle and extended the battery life. But we believe the full value of GreatCall Splash is realized through its connection to family members through GreatCall’s Link app and to health & safety experts through the 5Star service,” Inns added.

When a Splash user hits the device’s button for help in an uncertain or unsafe situation, there is an immediate connection to an NAED (emergencydispatch.com) Certified Response Agent. This U.S.-based team member will speak directly with the user through the device and, using GPS technology and Personal Profile information, can confirm the location and more effectively evaluate the situation providing a connection to whatever emergency services are required, from roadside assistance to emergency dispatch services.

Jitterbug5
With its dedicated 5Star button, the Jitterbug5 provides instant access to 5Star service and its team of NAED Certified Response agents. And, with GreatCall GoPlans, consumers also have access to the full benefits of the portfolio of health & safety apps, including: Urgent Care, with unlimited access to registered nurses or board certified doctors; MedCoach, daily medication reminders and Link.

The cell phone’s unrivaled ease-of-use is clear in the bright screen, loudspeaker and big buttons with backlit keypad. Jitterbug5 also has Voice Dial for quickly accessing hundreds of speed-dial contacts by voice-command without scrolling through contact lists. And, the phone is available in three patriotic colors: red, white and blue.

Connecting to Link
By downloading the GreatCall Link app to their own smartphone, family caregivers get peace of mind by seeing confirmations that their Splash or Jitterbug5 user is following their routine. The app provides an alert when the 5Star user - both on the device or the Jitterbug5 - hits the button for help with a record of all calls and the status of each interaction with an agent.
