We’re building a world where falls are fewer and dementia care is elevated

This is our passion, and it’s deeply personal.

SafelyYou evolved from the graduate work of our CEO, George Netscher. He lost his grandmother to Alzheimer’s, and his aunt now has it and requires constant care. Knowing that both her mother and sister developed symptoms in their mid-seventies, his mother feels certain she’ll follow the same path—which means she has about ten years before she begins to show signs, too.

After being accepted into MIT, Harvard, and Stanford, George chose UC Berkeley, whose Artificial Intelligence Lab is the top AI research group in the US. George selected this program because faculty there had family who were affected by Alzheimer’s, and they supported his dream of beginning a company if he could find a solution that really helped.

Now, real help is exactly what we’re providing, in senior living communities across the U.S., including both assisted living and skilled nursing facilities.

Trusted technology.
Expert insights.
Safer dementia care.

With our AI-enabled video we not only help detect falls but prevent them as well. Our alerts help staff respond to fall incidents in minutes, so residents get the care they need when they need it. Our professionals provide support to direct care staff through fall huddles, empowering them to make changes, preventing future falls. We’re helping to create safer environments and improve resident well-being while making it easier for staff to provide better quality care more consistently.

It’s all part of our mission to reshape dementia care, through trusted technology and expert insights. And it all adds up to a world where falls are fewer and dementia care is elevated. This is our passion, and it’s deeply personal.
