What People Are Saying

My son has been wearing the mCareWatch since December 2015  and it has saved his life a couple of times. 

Vicky Badger

There was some intial reluctance about wearing it because it was something new, but once he saw that the other kids consider it just another cool device, there was no going back.

Case Study

The Challenge

Jenny Owen describes the day her son, Dylan Owen-Buoy went missing as the worst of her life. Dylan is a young adult living with autism, uncontrolled epilepsy and an intellectual disability. He wondered off whilst he was attending his day care program without anyone noticing and got lost. Hours have passed and nobody was able to locate Dylan despite the extensive search party that was mobilised, including a police helicopter. Thankfully, Dylan was found safe and well by some friendly construction workers on a building site he’d wandered onto. The relief for all concerned was enormous.

The Research

Jenny wanted to make sure this never happened again. She resumed her research for a reliable and descreet, all-in-one solution that would give her the peace of mind that Dylan is safe and has the ability to activate a personal alarm if in need. She saw the mCareWatch personal alarm on TV and the demonstration of it’s GPS capabilities, customised reminders, mobile phone capabilities and geofence breach alerts won her over and she was willing to give it a go.

The Findings

“It is very common for children with autism to be very tactile defensive and dislike wearing objects. As such, Dylan had some initial reluctance about wearing the mCareWatch personal alarm because it was something new, but once he saw that the other kids consider it just another cool device there was no going back,” Jenny explains. He loves the watch and enjoys the social phone calls he is getting from his friends who regularly check on him. It has given him the sense of freedom and connectivity he hasn’t experienced before.

The Solution

“Once you know about the mCareWatch, it’s just common sense,” says Jenny. “In our ‘after mCareWatch’ time we have breathing space and so much peace of mind. He has so much more freedom now. It’s just brilliant. It’s just chopped so much of the worry away.”

Jenny was able to get FAHCSIA funding to help pay for the watch and has been a passionate advocate of the personal alarm technology ever since.
