Did you know?

Did you know that almost 1 in 4 Americans today are taking care of someone in a home with a disability like Alzheimers or Autism?

We at Sugey did.

The co-founders of Sugey have a son with a form of autism that requires life-long attention and care. They have many friends facing the same challenges with either Alzheimers or autism, and many of the same questions.

“What else can I do?”, “Are we making the right decisions?”, or the big one: “What happens if I die?”

The mission

Sugey’s mission is to help those suffering from disabilities such as Alzheimers or severe autism to live with dignity.

Sugey’s number one focus is wandering, and preventing the dozens of deaths every year. Second, is daily living reminders, which can help individuals live without constant attention. Lastly, we’re firm believers that living with dignity requires privacy, and the Sugey One is cloud free.

Our goal is ultimately to create an entire system that requires very little oversight, and can help a family with Alzheimers keep their loved one in their own home for an extended time, or for autism, to have a more complete quality of life.

The Sugey One

Sugey can’t disclose much at this time. However, we can say that we are creating sensors for the home and a central server, which we call the brain. The brain is easily handled by caregiving staff in a visiting home nurse situation, or by a family member. Our goal is to make it super simple, and our focus groups attest to that process.

We believe both families and home healthcare businesses will benefit. Families will gain a more secure environment and better quality of life, and businesses will be able to provide an excellent standard of care to more individuals per cycle.
