New Alzheimer’s Association Comfort Zone Check-InTM  Offers  Affordable Location Management

The Alzheimer’s Association is expanding its portfolio of safety services for people with Alzheimer’s disease with Alzheimer’s Association Comfort Zone Check-In, an affordable self-serve location management service.  For as little as $9.99 a month, Comfort Zone Check-In gives people living with Alzheimer’s more independence and their caregivers more peace of mind.

Comfort Zone Check-In is a new entry-level service that sends a daily scheduled location update to busy caregivers and active people living with Alzheimer’s. Additionally, those with the service can determine an individual’s location by initiating a “Find Me” or a longer “Follow Me” session, which provides updates every two minutes for one hour. 
Comfort Zone Check-In combines the latest technology with flexibility, allowing families to change devices and plans as a person’s disease progresses and monitoring needs change.  Using GPS and cellular technologies with online mapping, the entire family can proactively determine the location of the person with Alzheimer’s. Families log into a secure, password-protected website similar to logging into most email systems and proactively establish safety zones.

Comfort Zone Check-In is compatible with any Sprint phone, eliminating the need for an additional mobile device. It starts at $9.99 plus the cost of the phone and data plan.For more information or to purchase Comfort Zone Check-In, visit the Alzheimer’s Association at www.alz.org/comfortzone
