SafelyYou is a healthcare technology company based in San Francisco, CA. George Netscher, CEO, founded SafelyYou as a spin-off from the top-ranked Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research Laboratory, which strives to advance the available tools in AI and apply them to great societal concerns. SafelyYou utilizes cutting-edge artificial intelligence to empower care staff to implement fall prevention.
Imagine turning every unwitnessed fall in senior living communities into opportunities to prevent future falls and improve the overall safety and care for residents. Specifically designed for residents in memory care who often can’t tell us what happened, SafelyYou’s AI-enabled cameras detect falls with unprecedented accuracy and record video only when a fall is detected. Subsequent fall video review enables better support for unwitnessed falls through robust ER decision-making and root-cause analysis tools.
Today, this proven program is successfully deployed across the U.S., showing 40% fewer falls and 80% fewer ER visits from falls, significantly reducing costs and improving resident safety when every ER visit from memory care risks critical COVID exposure. Learn more at safely-you.com.
SafelyYou has witnessed over 10,000 fall videos in memory care and has the insight to empower you to finally understand how falls happen. We’ve taken our lessons learned from actual fall videos and developed SafelyYou University to build a community of fall champions. Training curriculums are built based on specific resident profiles. This approach meets the greater needs of those with dementia by:
- Adapting to their limited capacity for new learning,
- Understanding that they can’t learn from how they fell before and cannot avoid the risks that caused the prior fall, and
- Introducing new methods or adaptations as their status changes.
The SafelyYou University coursework was developed by a team with extensive hands-on experience in senior living with professional education including internal medicine and psychiatry, occupational therapy, and specialized dementia training. To learn more about the core team, view the bios at the bottom of the SafelyYou University homepage.
SafelyYou University is the first-ever training that combines fall prevention training and dementia training with a unique approach. SafelyYou University is focused on the development of a community Fall Champion, specifically addressing the need for frequent, in-person training with ongoing reinforcement of skills and techniques.
SafelyYou is open to all, but was designed as training for community fall champions to obtain training specific to dementia and falls while developing the skills and techniques to implement the SafelyYou approach to fall programming within their community.
