MyFeros and Google Assistant are helping seniors live in their homes longer

Feros Care has partnered with Google to introduce an Australian-first initiative that allows home care customers to self-manage their services through voice-command. Together, our MyFeros self-service portal and Google Assistant’s cutting-edge technology help you live at home longer, regardless of age or ability.

One wish we all have as we are growing older is to continue living independently in our own homes. As ailments and old age advance on us, it’s natural that we seek the comfort and familiarity of our four walls – however, staying at home can become increasingly difficult, especially with limited mobility, chronic health conditions or disability.

MyFeros and Google Assistant – A better way to communicate

MyFeros is a self-service portal, which allows Feros Care clients to easily manage and oversee their home package funding and different services. Clients are just a click away from self-management and self service. However, a click isn’t always as easy as it sounds – when it comes to conditions like Parkinson’s disease or vision impairment, even one click can be a barrier between a problem and a solution.

With Google Assistant technology, MyFeros clients will now pilot accessing and managing their funding package by simple voice command.

Paired and configured with a Google Home device, MyFeros users will be able to ask Google for confirmation of their services or appointments, ask for new services to be booked, or contact Feros Care straight away – from the comfort of their chairs!

Cutting-edge technology in aged care

As technology advances, so do we here at Feros Care. Your golden years should be that – golden, carefree, and supported. We’ve worked hard on a solution that creates and accessible service experience for everyone, regardless of age or ability, and the result is an Australian first project that takes you, our customer into account. This initiative aims to improve the quality of care we provide for everyone around Australia.
