Knute Nelson will showcase GrandCare at California conference

Knute Nelson will be featured at the AgeTech West Conference Thursday and Friday, November 14-15 in San Jose, California.

The conference, entitled Aging Services Meets Silicon Valley: Creating the Future of Care, will demonstrate how GrandCare Technology and Knute Nelson as a provider are pioneers in utilizing digital health tools to help keep individuals living independently in their homes.

Daphne Karpan, registered nurse and palliative care manager, will represent Knute Nelson Home Care at the conference.

The Knute Nelson Foundation was awarded two separate grants to introduce GrandCare technologies to palliative care and hospice patients throughout a 25-county west central Minnesota region where Knute Nelson serves.

The grants were awarded by the Blandin Foundation and the Minnesota Department of Human Services through their community services/service development program.

GrandCare is an all-in-one, in-home monitoring and sensor technology that enhances direct patient care to promote aging in place.

Using a small, touch screen monitor placed in a patient’s home, both patients and their families are able to access resources on topics such as health and wellness, bereavement and chronic disease education.

Knute Nelson Home Care and Hospice offer services provided in the comfort of an individual’s home, ranging from nursing care, physical/occupational/speech therapies, medication and pain management, smart home technology solutions and home health aide services. Persons of any age qualify for service.
