The sandwich generation, the stressful side of being mothers and daughters together

There are 15 million people in Italy (especially women) between 45 and 55 years old struggling with minor children and elderly parents in need of care. A situation that is not only Italian but which is experienced by us with more pathos: 70% of Italians call elderly parents every day, against a European average of 40%. To help them, an app arrives that checks and warns if the grandfather (or teenage son) leaves the "protected areas". There are 15 million people in Italy (especially women) between 45 and 55 years old struggling with minor children and elderly parents in need of care. A situation that is not only Italian but which is experienced by us with more pathos: 70% of Italians call elderly parents every day, against a European average of 40%. To help them, an app arrives that checks and warns if the grandfather (or teenage son) leaves the "protected areas". There are 15 million in Italy belonging to the so-called "sandwich generation", made up of 45-55 year-olds who, still amid their work, may find themselves in need of taking care of minor children and elderly parents or relatives in need of assistance. Some babysitters, some carers, according to a recent ISTAT multi-purpose survey, are mainly women, crushed among the over 65s (which in Italy are 13.4 million, but will reach 22 million in 2050) and 5, 2 million children aged between 7 and 15. Overall, almost 19 million people who rely on the care of the sandwich generation, and not only in Italy: a Doxa research has deepened the needs and fears of these family caregivers by interviewing a sample half composed of those who have at least one junior ( 7-15 years) and the other half by those with at least one senior (over 65 years); the study was then replicated in France, England and Germany to identify the peculiarities of each culture and the common traits of approach. Well, as far as seniors are concerned, the mother (51% of cases) is the person who is most cared for, followed by the father (27%) and the in-laws. Constant contact, in person (35% every day) or on the phone (69% every day), for a person who in 3 cases out of 4 lives less than 10 minutes away. Especially Italian is the practice of daily contact (69% compared to about 40% on average in other countries) which expresses the continuous need for closeness. As for children, the smartphone represents for parents an element of reassurance for the ease of being able to reach children more than a source of concern for potential misuse. "In international comparison," added Cristina Liverani, Doxa's research manager, "Italy is however the country where fears are highest, mainly because of what can be found online or because it becomes a distraction from studying. It follows a greater presence of limitations put in place by 1 parent out of 2 in Italy ». A market, that of the sandwich generation, which is beginning to interest various operators active in the field of new technologies. So here comes from Easy Life famil.care, a digital platform that allows the caregiver to "protect loved ones even from a distance, accompanying them in everyday life and assisting them in an emergency" via smartphone. Among the services offered, the sending of an emergency signal (without having to touch the phone) to send a request for help to the selected contacts, a falling signal (for the grandparents) as well as the "exit from protected areas", and receiving calls from the caregiver even when the child or parent does not answer the phone, thanks to the hands-free function that allows you to remotely activate the speaker or microphone of the other person's phone. To hear mom's voice even when you are lost in the latest version of the most loved video game. To activate the service, simply download one of the famil.care apps from the iTunes Store or Google Play on the smartphone of the caregiver and of the junior or senior, and proceed with the activation of the service on the website www.famil.care

Famil.care: a platform that helps to support care costs in a work-life balance perspective

Famil.care is a digital platform created by the Easy Life startup. This is an innovative solution, the first of its kind, designed for that segment of the population that has to manage family care costs (often double because they are aimed at elderly parents and children), reconciling them with their job. The system, remotely monitoring the activities and health of the elderly and children, helps families to take care of their loved ones even at a distance, in everyday life, and in an emergency, thanks to a smartphone app and an emergency device. This device allows the client to send "SOS" messages in case of need to instantly notify his family. The Famil.care service also provides the ability to remotely manage your loved one's address book and agenda, know his position in real-time and call him on speakerphone without it necessarily having to answer. The platform uses strategic channels to support its business; in addition to its website, agreements were signed with Pharmaidea, the largest Italian pharmaceutical distributor and Amazon. There are also numerous synergies with various corporate welfare platforms - such as Jointly, Welfare Hub (Intesa Sanpaolo), UBI Welfare and AON - and with the largest banks and insurance companies with which we are working to insert Famil.care among their products.

Economy

The startup that offers tranquility

The sandwich generation reels and asks for help: these are women and men between 40 and 60 years old who still have relatively young children and elderly parents to look after. A situation that involves a surplus of stress. But an app can help make everything easier: famil.care. Two types of products are offered, one specially designed for the elderly who are still self-sufficient, the other for children between 7 and 15 years of age. In the first case, famil.care offers a series of dedicated services: monitoring of the elderly person's actions (he/she is at home, goes out, is awake): if the phone rings but no one answers, famil.care can activate the ringtone and the speakerphone, to make the child or relatives talk with the elderly person who does not respond: he/ she remembers, via smartphone, appointments, deadlines, and medicines to be taken with the relatives' voice. Finally, to combat the idiosyncrasy of the elderly for modern technologies, it allows rewriting the software of the mobile phone so that the faces of the people who are calling the elderly person appear on the display. This ensures greater assistance to a category, that of the elderly precisely, who is afraid of falling or feeling bad in 82% of cases. And above all, we avoid resorting to more 'extreme' solutions such as hospitalization in a nursing home or the support of a caregiver.

Famil.care, that is the 4.0 declined in assistance mode

The start-up founded by Luca Concone grows and looks to Europe and the world of corporate welfare. Agreements with Intesa, Ubi, and other important companies. Service and business model innovation based on the smart use of existing technologies. It aims at three million loans and 100 thousand users by 2018. To get closer to the goal, in the meantime, it accelerates marketing plans by attacking the world of corporate welfare and measuring itself with a European project intended to guarantee people active and healthy aging health. The subject of all these actions is famil.care, the digital platform (App for iOS and Android) designed by the innovative startup Easy Life of which Luca Concone (formerly in McKinsey, AtKearney, Municipality of Milan, Sea and other innovation and start initiatives -up) is CEO.
The target of famil.care is the segment of the population between 40 and 60 years, professionally active but who must deal simultaneously with elderly parents (perhaps not entirely self-sufficient to take care of) and adolescent or pre-adolescent children to be kept 'eye. This is an interesting variation of the concepts of interconnection and 4.0 in a familiar way. At the heart of the service offered there is an object that contains a GPS inside, useful for monitoring the position of the person you care for (the elderly person who is lost or the boy who knows where he is or at what speed it travels ...) but also capable of detecting falls (the elderly person in the bathroom, a typical risk situation). This object is connected to the mobile phone, giving way to activate an interesting range of services that make up the platform. Company welfare at the center of the industrial project The idea of ​​famil.care, headed by Luca Concone, dates back to over two years ago. Today that intuition seems to have centered between the emergence of a delicate social situation and the emergence of an opportunity, company welfare. As for the first, in our country, there are more than 9 million caregivers, people who in addition to their work take care of family members, the elderly, the disabled, or those who are not self-sufficient. 25% (of the nine million caregivers) are employees of a company; more than 80% of them are required to assist their loved ones without having outside help; there are eight hours between assistance and surveillance dedicated every day to the non-self-sufficient family member; one in four caregivers are forced to give up their job. As for the second, it concerns corporate welfare, or the set of contractual or unilateral initiatives by the employer aimed at increasing the well-being of the worker and his family through a different distribution of remuneration, which can consist of both monetary benefits either in the provision of services, or a mix of the two solutions. Well famil.care, being part of this range of solutions, is a lever of "peace of mind" for caregivers. That, if workers, can access packages of possibilities to be added to the classic wages. And here the circle closes thanks to corporate welfare, whose solutions (products and/or services) translate into the optimization of the tax advantage in compliance with current legislation (art. 51 and 100 of the Consolidated Income Tax Law) for all the subjects - workers and employers - involved "Today - Luca Concone told Industria Italiana - we are present on various corporate welfare platforms: from Jointly, an innovative start-up with a social vocation, which offers its platform to more than 40 companies in Italy, small and large; Intesa Sanpaolo's Welfare Hub, the innovative service launched by the Intesa Sanpaolo Group, and addressed to all its client companies up to UBI Welfare of UBI Banca, tailored consultancy service available to client companies and Group employees. But we already have other agreements in the near future. Our services can be purchased on these portals at a price reduced by 10-15%, being able to fully benefit from Article 100 of the Tuir ". The flexible benefits of corporate welfare, more convenient from a tax point of view, come to supplement (and in some cases replace) productivity bonuses, with no limits on the amount and being extendable to family members, even if not dependent. From pharmacies to digital windows: on the side of caregivers But Easy Life with famil.care does not forget to contact the caregivers directly. The service can be purchased both directly on the famil.care website (www.famil.care) and in some pharmacies, where the first two months of subscription can be purchased (the apps for the Senior and Junior versions are configured iOS and Android) and the emergency button, to be given to the subjects who must be "monitored" so that it can alert when something goes wrong. But the service also addressed new sales channels, such as the digital showcases of important operators. The first agreement is that with Intesa Sanpaolo's InOfferta, a highly profiled media center, which provides 11 million private customers (of which over 5 million are active in home banking), CRM intelligence for the selection of the target customers to whom direct promotional communications and exhibition spaces on multiple digital channels (movement list, Internet Banking, mobile App, Facebook App, Newsletter, etc.) Famil.care in Concone's ultimate intentions is not only the answer to a "private affair": "The State - underlines Concone - should facilitate private individuals who commit themselves to relieve the national health system of hospitalization costs. If an elder falls and remains in the corridor for 12 hours, he will have to stay in the hospital for three months. If our device immediately notices that something is wrong and sounds the alarm, it is conceivable that the intervention time is immediate so that the time spent in public structures is significantly reduced. And calculating an average amount of 120 euros per day for hospitalization, it is easy to understand how important the role played by our company in prevention is ». Currently, the company is active in Italy, the United Kingdom, Germany, and France, but "we are transversal to the great European economies - explains Concone -. The geographical concept is now outdated ». The goal set by the founder of famil.care is extremely ambitious. Goal 2018: 100 thousand users If 2017 ended with a number of customers of little less than 10,000 units globally, for 2018, Concone aims at a remarkable milestone: «We have created a new website that makes operations easier and we are expanding the channels sales well beyond those mentioned. Our goal is to have 100,000 users by the end of 2018. On the other hand, the market is huge and the growth opportunities are everywhere. We need to insist on this path that we have undertaken, capitalizing on the experience that the second half of 2017 gives us: we have almost doubled our clientele. Our technology and the services we can offer are at least two years ahead of what is offered by any other competitor ». One of the guidelines on which it was decided to focus on achieving this ambitious goal is that of quality: today the hardware that manages famil.care has a defect of less than 0.01%, and this is because there are people dedicated to daily testing the app, in all possible conditions, to minimize the risk of "crash". As for the technological development of famil.care, the service is available on the two main App stores, that of Apple and that of Android. While there were no particular problems with the Google platform, with the "bitten apple" there were some more obstacles. "Apple - said Concone - has a particularly stringent privacy policy. For this reason, for an external app to use a person's phone to make calls, as in our case, authorization is required from time to time by the owner of the smartphone. But if the elder or the boy who installed famil.care on their device is unable to accept the call request, how can the problem be circumvented? We have succeeded in becoming a sort of "call center": in practice when the app signals us a problematic situation, it is we in the first person who makes the call to relatives through an automated operations center It is true, it is a cost additional for our company, but at least we are sure to offer adequate support to the needs of subscribers.» Beyond the objectives in terms of user, Concone hints at future projects and new challenges facing his company. «I prefer not to anticipate news - concludes the founder of famil.care - but I can say that we are in negotiation with two great companies». Furthermore, after cementing around a series of big names as underwriters, the idea of famil.care is also to rely on high-level advisors who will help the company find new capital to accelerate its expansion, making the goal of the 100 thousand subscribers is a concrete possibility. All the more so, as Concone likes to repeat: «All advanced companies are offering their employees something different from the classic USB stick as a Christmas present. And it is to them that we turn, to those subjects who have a higher gear». Famil.care in the future of Europe A company like Easy Life that makes new technologies a tool to improve the existence of many people could not escape the efforts of the European institutions pursuing similar objectives. Famil.care has responded to one of the calls of the Active and Assisted Living (AAL) Program - a program within the broader Horizon 2020 - which supports the development of ICT products and services to improve the quality of life of elderly people. In the 2017 call - also supported by MIUR - three projects with Italian participation were admitted, among them IOANNA, which sees the participation of famil.care together with six other European companies. It is a project that is aimed primarily at women, a very significant recognition for the work done so far.

STARTUP: Easylife launch app famil.care

The Easylife startup launches famil.care, an app that allows families to manage and care for their older loved ones - available from September in pharmacies throughout Italy thanks to Pharmaidea. Famil.care, explains a note, wants to be the forerunner to experience new frontiers of the pharmacy destined to a better lifestyle. In practice, it is a platform to allow 'caregivers', the people who take care of others, to protect their family members even from a distance and assist them both in daily life and case of emergency.
In Italy, according to a Doxa study, 19 million people (between over 65 and under 16) rely on the attentions of the so-called sandwich generation, that is the slice of the population that amid their work - and are mainly women among 45 and 55 years old - must look after children and parents simultaneously. To activate the service, a note explains, it is sufficient to download the app on the mobile phones of the caregiver and the senior family member to whom the SOS button will be delivered as large as a two-euro coin to be kept in your pocket (but also on the neck or the belt) and activate a user on www.famil.care. "Over 2.5 billion people use apps today to exchange messages and spend about 90% of their time on mobile devices. We at famil.care want to contribute positively to this evolution, which has at stake the improvement of the lives of millions of people and consequently the sustainability of the welfare of the country system, "says Luca Concone, CEO and Chief Designer of Easy Life, the startup that designed the platform. "famil.care - continues Concone - has three strengths: it is a service accessible to all for ease of use and costs; it helps to manage emergencies, allowing intervention, even automatic in case of need; but above all allows with a smartphone to ensure gestures of daily care for the people we love. In this new key of care, the pharmacy is our most significant ambassador ".

The home care app is coming

The home care app is coming: Tech & Social Many Italians in their 40s and 50s must take care of their children and parents simultaneously. But the smartphone can help them April 20, 2017 Photo: Frame from a video of the State Police against scams for the elderly. August 6, 2016. - Credits: ANSA / US STATE POLICE American sociologists have called it the sandwich generation for many years. It is the generation of 45-50-year-olds who in family life must try their hand on two fronts, both equally demanding: they must look after their children who are still minors and, at the same time, they must also take care of their parents or elderly in-laws.
Frequent contact According to Doxa research conducted in several European countries, middle-aged Italians have many more contacts with their elderly family members than their peers in many other countries. In the South of the Alps, for example, 41% of 40-50-year-olds speak on the phone with their parents or in-laws at least twice a day against 21% of the British, 16% of the French and 15% of the Germans. And home visits are also more frequent: in Italy, 35% of middle-aged people go to visit their elderly mother or father every day while in the rest of Europe the share varies between 21 and 25 %. New app To manage their daily commitments, today the sandwich generation seems to be able to count on a new ally: the development of mobile technologies driven by the spread of smartphones, new generation mobile phones. Easy Life, a multinational company based in London but with very Italian partners, has created for example Famil.care, a mobile application that allows you to take better care of parents and children. Thanks to this app, which provides for the payment of a fee of 5.99 euros per month, the elderly can for example create a direct line with their children and family members, sending emergency signals and urgent help requests in case of health problems or accidental falls. Safe children are also available. Similar services are available for underage children who with Famil.cre can request the immediate intervention of their parents in case of need. Of course, some young people will have to give up a little privacy since, among the services of this new app, there is also the sending of a report as soon as certain "mischievous" conduct such as exceeding the limits of speed with the scooter or leaving safe places like school or gym. Before reaching directly to mom and dad, however, the report comes first to the young man, who therefore has some time to get in line.

As with technology, you can "look after" your grandfather or your child

As with technology, it is possible to "take care" of the grandfather or the child: The "sandwich generation" is the one that is crushed between the care of elderly parents and children who are still young or not autonomous. Fatigue and worries for them are many. Perhaps technology, in the form of an app and a smartphone, can help those who are committed to protecting their loved ones (elderly parents and children and teenagers). The "sandwich generation" is called that slice of the population that amid their work must also take care of their children and parents or relatives: crushed between the care of elderly parents and children who are still young or not autonomous. Fatigue and worries for them are many.
And it is not always easy to find support and promotion in their human effort. Fatigue that involves taking, at a national level, a really large number of people. In fact, it is estimated that in Italy there are 13.4 million over 65 (22 million in 2050) and 5.2 million children aged between 7 and 15 years. Almost 19 million people who rely on the care of the sandwich generation. According to Istat, over 15 million individuals, mainly women, between the ages of 45 and 55. One way to meet these people can be Famil.care proposal, created by Easy Life, a digital platform that allows the caregiver (an English term to represent those who give care and affection) to protect loved ones even at a distance, accompanying them in everyday life and assisting them in an emergency. It is used through a smartphone and an emergency button and allows you to be close to your family world, even assisting those in need from afar. Who created it can certainly improve the lives of millions of people and give concrete help to the welfare of the country. To make the services useful, Easy Life has commissioned Doxa research to understand the needs and fears of the "sandwich generation". Starting from how a smartphone and technology can facilitate communication and information. The research focused on a sample half composed of those who have at least one junior (7-15 years) and the other half by those who have at least one senior (over 65 years) and was replicated in France, England, and Germany to identify the peculiarities of each culture and the common traits of approach. As far as seniors are concerned, the mother (51% of cases) is the person most cared for, followed by the father (27%) and the in-laws. Constant contact, in person (35% every day) or on the phone (69% every day), for a person who in 3 cases out of 4 lives less than 10 minutes away. Especially Italian is the practice of daily contact (69% compared to about 40% on average in other countries) which expresses the continuous need for closeness. For Italian parents, the smartphone in the hands of their children represents an element of reassurance for the ease of being able to reach their children more than a source of concern for potentially wrong uses. "In international comparison," added Cristina Liverani, Doxa's research manager, "Italy is however the country where fears are highest, mainly because of what can be found online or because it becomes a distraction from studying. It follows a greater presence of limitations put in place by 1 parent out of 2 in Italy ". Matteo Antonelli (Vice President of Marketing & Sales of Easy Life) underlines that "the most important needs in the relationship with the senior report to the emergency area, or to the timely warning in case of need, followed by making oneself feel close in everyday life and by helping them overcome barriers to smartphone use. About young people, on the other hand, it is important to leverage the educational aspect by getting them used to have a more aware and responsible role whether it is study, free time or how to use the smartphone, at the center of every activity, but which risks isolating them from the world around them ». Luca Concone, CEO of Easy Life reminds that famil.care can be activated with a modest monthly fee and it is certain that technology allows «a solution accessible to all, it helps not only to prevent and manage emergencies, allowing you to intervene promptly in case of necessity but also to be close and have many small gestures of attention towards the people we love ».

The sandwich generation, the Doxa survey reveals the impossible lives of those 15 million family caregivers

About 19 million people are cared for daily by family members: this is the case for over 65s (currently 13.4 million, but it is estimated that they will reach 22 million in 2050), or for children aged between 7 and 15 (5.2 million). Lastly, 15 million people, especially women aged between 45 and 50, assist family members daily: it is the sandwich generation, divided between home and work, which while trying to cope with daily expenses and commitments also takes care of loved ones. famil.care is aimed specifically at them, at Italian caregivers, and offers itself as an innovative tool for the care and protection of people even from a distance. The idea, developed by the Easy Life company, was to create a digital platform to allow caregivers to accompany loved ones in everyday life at any time.
SURVEY
In view of the presentation of the project, Easy Life has commissioned a survey from Doxa to refine the services developed for the platform. The sample examined is made up of families who have at least one junior (7-15 years) and those who have at least one senior (over 65%). It emerged that in the case of seniors, the mother is the person most cared for (51% of cases), followed by the father (27%) and the in-laws. «The most relevant needs in the relationship with the senior - comments Matteo Antonelli, vice president of Marketing & Sales of Easy Life - report to the emergency area, or to the timely warning in case of need, followed by making oneself feel close in everyday life and from helping them to overcome the barriers to using the smartphone ». It is no coincidence that the interviewees stated that 35% of them have daily personal contact, 69% by phone and that in 3 cases out of 4 people live 10 minutes away. In the case of juniors, on the other hand, it emerged that for Italian parents the smartphone represents an element of reassurance for the ease of being able to reach their children more than a source of concern. And in this case, Antonelli points out "it is important to leverage the educational aspect, getting them used to have a more conscious and responsible role, whether it is study, free time or how to use the smartphone, at the center of every activity, but which risks isolating them from the world around them ".
THE PLATFORM
famil.care can be customized to the specific needs of families. To activate the service, simply download an app, fill in your profile and that of the protected person and configure infinite users between senior and junior. Thus the caregiver will be able to manage all activities even remotely from his smartphone. «Ours - explains Luca Concone, CEO and Chief Designer of Easy Life - wants to be first of all a concrete contribution to the improvement of the lives of millions of people and an aid to the welfare of the country system. It is a solution accessible to all that, against a modest monthly fee, helps not only to prevent and manage emergencies, allowing you to intervene promptly in case of need but also to be close and have many small gestures of attention to people we love ».

The app that educates grandchildren and protects grandparents arrives

It is called Familcare the platform created by Easy Life to allow caregivers, people who take care of others, to protect their family members even from a distance and assist them both in everyday life and the event of an emergency. In Italy, according to a Doxa study, there are 13.4 million over 65s and it is estimated that they will reach 22 million in 2050. But the weakest group is also made up of the youngest who is around 5.2 million aged the 7 and 15 years.
Overall, almost 19 million people rely on the care of the so-called sandwich generation, that slice of the population that amid their work must also take care of their children and parents or relatives. They are mainly women, between 45 and 55 years old. Just young people are one of the categories most controlled today by parents. For the latter, daily contact is such a necessity that the smartphone in the hands of the children represents an element of reassurance for the ease of being able to reach them more than a source of concern for potential misuse. To help those parents who are too apprehensive and who want to monitor their loved ones constantly, here comes Familcare. To use the platform, just any smartphone and an emergency button are enough. The digital platform can be completely customized and tailored to the specific needs of each family. To activate the service, simply download the app on your mobile phone and activate your user on www.famil.care. Once you have filled in your profile and that of the family member (or family members) you want to protect, the caregiver will be able to manage all activities even remotely from a smartphone. Among the main services to support young people, there are emergency signals to be automatically sent to a list of selected contacts, the reception of messages recorded by the voice of the caregiver to remember appointments and deadlines but also reports regarding the excessive use of video games on mobile phones, excessive speed on a motorbike and the request "come and get me" with an indication of place and time. The cost of the Familcare annual fee is reduced as users increase. There is a monthly fee of 5.99 euros for the first user, including the emergency button, 0 of 4.99 euros without the emergency button (plus a cost of 9.91 euros for the set-up, supported from call center). "The launch of Familcare wants to be first of all a concrete contribution to improving the lives of millions of people and an aid to the welfare of the country system", commented Luca Concone, CEO and chief designer of Easy Life. «Familcare is a solution accessible to all that helps not only to prevent and manage emergencies, allowing intervention in case of need but also to be close to the people we love»

Innovation: easylife launches famil.care platform

Easy Life has launched famil.care, an innovative digital platform that allows the "caregiver" (the person who gives care and affection) to protect loved ones even from a distance, accompanying them in everyday life and assisting them in an emergency. The platform, says a note, was created to respond to the needs of that large part of the Italian population, almost 19 million people, who amid their work have to deal with the 13.4 million over 65 and the 5.2 million of children aged between 7 and 15.
"The launch of famil.care wants to be first of all a concrete contribution to the improvement of the lives of millions of people and an aid to the welfare of the country system", commented Luca Concone, CEO and Chief Designer of Easy Life. "We have developed a service platform thinking about the different needs of all the 3 subjects involved. From the caregivers, who increasingly struggle to reconcile the many daily commitments with the responsibility of taking care of loved ones, to the older family members who care to safeguard their autonomy, but they are aware of the risks of age, up to young people who take their first steps in the digital society but ignore the threats. famil.care is a solution accessible to all that, against a modest monthly fee, helps not only to prevent and manage emergencies, allowing you to intervene promptly in case of need but also to be close and have many small gestures of attention towards the people we love. It is a new travel companion adopted in a convinced and shared way by all the actors involved "

An app to protect loved ones

Does the elderly mother fall into the house or to the gardens? Or don't you answer the phone? Don't worry: an app automatically sends a message (in the event of a fall, also indicating the place) or remotely activates the speaker/microphone of the mother's smartphone. These are just two of the many functions of famil.care, a digital platform created by Easy Life that allows the 'caregiver' (literally a person who gives care and affection) to protect loved ones from a distance.
Whether they are elderly or very young: because the functions of this app also adapt to the remote control of children when their age is between 7 and 15 years. And it was conceived as an aid to the so-called sandwich generation, that slice of the population that amid their work have to take care of their children and parents: over 15 million, especially women, between 45 and 55 years old. And it is a heavy commitment if you think that in Italy there are 13.4 million over 65 and 5.2 million children between 7 and 15 years of age

The sandwich generation, the stressful side of being mothers and daughters together

There are 15 million people in Italy (especially women) between 45 and 55 years old struggling with minor children and elderly parents in need of care. A situation that is not only Italian but which is experienced by us with more pathos: 70% of Italians telephone elderly parents every day, against a European average of 40%. To help them, an app arrives that checks and warns if the grandfather (or teenage son) leaves the "protected areas". There are 15 million in Italy belonging to the so-called "sandwich generation", made up of 45-55 year-olds who, still in full work, may find themselves in need of taking care of minor children and elderly parents or relatives in need of assistance.
Some babysitters, some carers, according to a recent ISTAT multi-purpose survey, are mainly women, crushed among the over 65s (which in Italy are 13.4 million, but will reach 22 million in 2050) and 5.2 millions of children aged between 7 and 15. Overall, almost 19 million people who rely on the care of the sandwich generation, and not only in Italy: a Doxa research has deepened the needs and fears of these family caregivers by interviewing a sample half composed of those who have at least one junior ( 7-15 years) and the other half by those with at least one senior (over 65 years); the study was then replicated in France, England and Germany to identify the peculiarities of each culture and the common traits of approach. Well, as far as seniors are concerned, the mother (51% of cases) is the person who is most cared for, followed by the father (27%) and the in-laws. Constant contact, in person (35% every day) or on the phone (69% every day), for a person who in 3 cases out of 4 lives less than 10 minutes away. Especially Italian is the practice of daily contact (69% compared to about 40% on average in other countries) which expresses the continuous need for closeness. As for children, the smartphone represents for parents an element of reassurance for the ease of being able to reach their children more than a source of concern for potentially wrong uses. "In international comparison," added Cristina Liverani, Doxa's research manager, "Italy is however the country where fears are highest, mainly because of what can be found online or because it becomes a distraction from studying. It follows a greater presence of limitations put in place by 1 parent out of 2 in Italy ". A market, that of the sandwich generation, which is beginning to interest various operators active in the field of new technologies. So here comes from Easy Life famil.care, a digital platform that allows the caregiver to "protect loved ones even from a distance, accompanying them in everyday life and assisting them in an emergency" via smartphone. Among the services offered, the sending of an emergency signal (without having to touch the phone) to send a request for help to the selected contacts, a falling signal (for the grandparents) as well as the "exit from protected areas", and receiving calls from the caregiver even when the child or parent does not answer the phone, thanks to the hands-free function that allows you to remotely activate the speaker or microphone of the other person's phone. To hear mom's voice even when you are lost in the latest version of the most loved video game. To activate the service, simply download one of the famil.care apps from the iTunes Store or Google Play on the smartphone of the caregiver and of the junior or senior, and proceed with activating the service on the site.

An app thinks about to protect our loved ones

Technology puts itself at the service of health. Helping us to limit the daily worries related to our loved ones, perhaps elderly or alone. From now on, if the parents fall into the house or on the street, or if they simply do not answer the phone, there is an app that limits the damage: it does so by automatically sending a message (in case of a fall, also indicating the place ) or remotely and hands-free speaker/microphone on the smartphone of the person in question.
These are a couple of the many functions of famil.care, a digital platform created by Easy Life that allows the 'caregiver' (literally a person who gives care and affection) to protect loved ones from a distance, whether they are elderly or very young. The functions of this app also adapt to the remote control of children, when their age is between 7 and 15 years. And it was conceived as an aid to the so-called sandwich generation, that slice of the population that amid their work must take care of their children and parents: over 15 million, especially women, between 45 and 55 years old. A heavy commitment, if you think that in Italy there are 13.4 million over 65 and 5.2 million children between 7 and 15 years of age.
FUNCTIONS BEYOND THE DANGERS
To investigate the problem, Easy Life has entrusted research to Doxa (in Italy, France, England, and Germany), according to which the mother (51% of cases) is the person who is most cared for, followed by the father (27 %) and in-laws. Especially Italian is the practice of daily contact: 69% compared to about 40% on average in other countries. As for young people, the parent would like to leverage, rather than on a possible danger, the educational aspect. In addition to an emergency signal for a distress call, there is the possibility to report to the parent if the child leaves safe areas (from school, for example), or if he exceeds the speed limits on a scooter or even if it exceeds set time limits for video games. The monthly cost of the app decreases as the number of people who use it in the family increases. "This is a solution accessible to everyone," says Luca Concone, CEO and Chief Designer of Easy Life - which, against a modest monthly fee, helps not only to prevent and manage emergencies but also to be close and have many small gestures of attention towards the people we love».

How many times you tought how good would it be to be able to stay always close to your dear ones even if phisically afar? FamilCare grant you this chance. What's famil.care? Just defining it as a simple app is probably reductive but substantially that's what it is. What we can do whit famil.care is one of the most important thing: taking care of our dear ones' safety. The app can be used to monitor both elders and kids; it needs to be installed both on your phone and on your relatives one and be used to monitor the elderly but also children.

The Famil.care Nexus app needs to be installed on the smartphone of the responsible person and the Famil.care Senior (for the elderly) or Famil.care Junior (for children) app which has to be installed on the smartphone of the person who needs assistance. How to use? Just install the corresponding apps in the two main smartphones. Take an example, we install the Famil.care Nexus app on the guardian's smartphone while the Famil.care Senior app on the smartphone of the elderly person, in this way we can manage everything directly with the smartphone.

The SOS button Another very useful thing about this service is the SOS button that you can request. This arrives home in a very short time and you can use it immediately. It is a sort of pin that must be worn by those who need assistance. This button can be used in case of danger. It is no coincidence that it is called the "SOS" button precisely because once clicked, a signal will be sent to the tutor that was previously chosen. Dissociate phone It may happen that once the app is uninstalled and reinstalled on the phone of the Senior or Junior account when we try to log in we are informed that the number is already in use on another device. How can you solve this problem? Very simple. Watch the video to do it in a very simple way. Go to Famil.care - Settings (click on your name at the top right) - under the wording subscriptions click on the pencil relating to the service subscribed (in my case Unica12 Senior).
