    Revolutionizing Home Care with Sensi AI

     Sensi AI is revolutionizing home care with its innovative audio-based virtual care assistants. These devices, placed in the homes of older adults, stream audio data to a secure cloud where advanced AI models analyze patterns and detect potential health concerns. Romi Gubes, CEO and co-founder, highlighted Sensi AI's commitment to preserving privacy by capturing only short snippets related to specific care events.
    The technology enables early detection of issues like UTIs, medication errors, and cognitive changes, allowing for timely intervention.

Embracing solutions like Sensi AI can help the home care industry overcome workforce challenges and better support the aging population.: #HomeCareTech #VirtualCareAssistants #AIPoweredCare #ElderCare #AgingInPlace #FractionalCare #PrivacyFirstTech
