Who hasn’t worried about a friend or family member? Elderly relatives, your son or daughter, a domestic abuse victim, people with special needs.
Woods Cross Check (WCC) is an app that was designed to ease some of those worries. WCC was designed by Roy Fonza, a full-time Firefighter and Paramedic of 28-years. His close relationship with his Aunt Chris drove him to design this app. They always had weekly check-ins, at the same time, same day every week. Roy was constantly worried about the other 6 days, but didn’t want to make his Aunt feel as though she was a burden to him. Upon speaking with his Aunt Chris, she voiced the same feelings. So Roy came up with an easy and fast way for people to check in and wanted to share his idea with others who may be in a similar position.
There are many reasons that checking in is often overlooked:
•having the time and ability to talk/text
•having privacy to communicate
•losing the feeling of independence
What if a simple app could allow you to check in or check on someone you care for? Even better- what if the design was easy to view and as easy as pressing ONE button? AND what if check-ins could be scheduled and send alerts to your phone? Woods Cross Check is THAT APP!
Let’s take a look at some of the many uses:
Elderly family members can let you know they are ok.
WCC can be used by nurses to give and get quick updates.
Students can provide their status to school administration and parents in the event of an emergency.
Babysitters can provide a quick thumbs-up so date-nights are not interrupted.
Stroke victims who may not be able to talk/text can press one button to say “I‘m not ok.”
Have a new driver but want to spare them embarrassment? Our check-ins are quick and easy.
Give it a try.
