Remote Care Support for Older People and the Most Vulnerable using Activ8rlives App
Posted on March 17, 2020
The UK has announced that older people (over 70 years of age) and the most vulnerable may soon need to self-isolate for up to four months.
UK Company Aseptika is offering its Activ8rlives4 Health+Wellness App free-of-charge for families to provide remote support for older family members that have to self-isolate, which is also available via the Activ8rlives web portal (www.activ8rlives.com).
The process of requesting remote support from a family member starts by Registering for a free account via Activ8rlives online. Once Registered you then send a request to your family member via the Activ8rlives web portal by selecting the option on the “Caring” tab asking them to become your Remote Carer. The Carer accepts the invitation, joins Activ8rlives free-of-charge and then accepts your request and you are both linked. You can stop sharing your data with your Remote Carer at any time.
If you are already a user of the Activ8rlives4 Health+Wellness App and want to care remotely for older family members, an hour spent downloading the Activ8rlives4 Health+Wellness App (iOS, Android and Kindle Fire) onto their smartphone or tablet and teaching them how to enter vital signs information, such as symptoms, blood oxygen, heart rate, temperature, blood pressure and weight, could make all the difference in the coming months as medical care becomes limited and rationed.
If a parent or older person already has medical monitors at home, even if they are not the Activ8rlives models, data can still be entered manually via the Activ8rlives4 Health+Wellness App. A Carer can remotely support up to 10 other users. No purchase is necessary and there is no charge for private use by families.
Instructions demonstrating how set-up remote monitoring is on the front page of the Company’s website.

Kevin Auton, Managing Director of Aseptika advised: “We are expecting the workload on our technical support teams to increase significantly. If Remote Caring is something that you wish to get in place within your family or friendship group, we recommend that you do this as soon as possible before further lock-down strategies are announced.”
Cleveland Henry, Director of Cloud at UKCloud Health said: ‘’Our customers and partners can depend on UKCloud Health to deliver the service, capacity and assurances that will help them through this uncertain and unpredictable time. UKCloud Health are delighted to be supporting this initiative from Aseptika in our nations time of crisis.’’
The staff at Activ8rlives and UK Cloud are expecting to become infected with COVID-19 just like the rest of the population, but we have plans in place to maintain support and to continue our Customer Support, 7-days-a-week by email and phone throughout. UKCloud Health confirmed their BCP readiness last week.
