Anne is designed to be your virtual assistant in multiple ways.
Anne’s functionalities are practical, but often also enjoyable. No digital knowledge is needed to have Anne at home. Anne can be set up in such a way that she contributes to a little bit of enjoyment every day. She helps to have contact with people and to keep better control on daily matters.
Once we have entered the details of the contacts with whom Anne is allowed to videocall, they can also call the user of Anne via a web access and their personal login. They can call with their cell phone, tablet or computer with webcam.
Through videocalling you can see each other and that contributes to more personal contact with family and friends. This can also be a pleasant way for caregivers to communicate. It allows them to pay extra attention, when they don’t always have time to drop by.
Anne has a medication diary. Through the dashboard, medication events can be entered and planned in detail, so that Anne can read them out loud at these specific times. She also asks the user if the medications have already been taken. This has to be confirmed on Anne. Anne will remind the user again after 30 minutes if there is no confirmation and advises the user to call somebody if they didn’t take their medication.
Anne has a calendar in which you can enter appointments, such as those of the hairdresser, doctor, birthdays, visits from friends and so on. The appointment can be added to the calendar through a website, this website is called Anne’s dashboard. By entering the appointment in a fun way, Anne says it exactly that way, for example you can describe how a visitor likes to drink his coffee or tea or which cookie to buy before the appointment.
