Everybody deserves to live their potential regardless of their limitations. At mCare Digital, we’ve developed products and services that facilitate safety and greater confidence for people with disabilities in their homes, at work and their communities.
Our experience working with people with disabilities ranges from families with children, young adults, dementia sufferers and adults who acquired disabilities later in life due to an accident or illness. As a registered NDIS provider, mCare Digital now offers products and services funded through the NDIS. Our 4G-SIM enabled smart watch and mobile phone not only helps you locate the wearer anytime and anywhere but it also servers as a personal alarm with an easy-to-activate SOS button accompanied by our 24/7 monitoring service.
“The mCareWatch gives you peace of mind knowing there is this whole other safety net. My son who has autism loves the watch, which enables him so much more freedom than ever before.
It’s chopped so much of the worry away.”

The challengeJenny 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 researchJenny 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 an emergency alarm if in need. She saw the mCareWatch 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 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 technology ever since.
