Washington, D.C. — Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) sat among the elected officials at a hearing today when a Richmonder told the United States Senate Special Committee on Aging the most important factor in choosing a home technology system is to “work with a trusted advisor.” That’s just what he did last year when he hired Livewire to help his mother-in-law avoid moving into an assisted living facility.

“We looked at assisted living, but wanted first and foremost to honor Lib’s desire to remain at home. There are distinct advantages to remaining at home such as conserving resources that can be used for more individualized care when it’s really needed as well as providing a safer yet familiar environment,” said Charles Strickler, 51, a resident of Manakin-Sabot, Va. “The Wellness system installed by Livewire delivers vital information to the family enabling her to live independently while being able to respond to emergencies quickly. There have been numerous occasions where the Wellness system let us know about emerging medical conditions, lack of sleep and even detected a fall. The system enables us to add additional caregiving assistance to meet her evolving needs.”

Livewire became’s first Wellness dealer in 2013 and works closely with the Vienna, Va. company to evaluate new products and concepts. Wellness consists of a series of wireless sensors installed throughout the home enabling independent living.  Notifications via text message or mobile app keep family members and caregivers aware of problems or dangerous situations so elders maintain their independence without feeling like a burden.  Wellness also monitors and tracks daily activity such as how much time is spent in bed, in a favorite chair or out of the house.  Wellness communicates to via a secure cellular connection, eliminating the need for a phone or Internet connection.

“We’re proud to partner with and humbled to have the opportunity to help out great people like the Stricklers,” said Henry Clifford, President of Livewire. “We continue to keep our eyes peeled for the simplest solutions for our customers and look forward to accelerating the growth of our independent living division.”
