How it works

for your parent

Safety check-ins

Your parent has a new routine: checking in. A few times a day, during specific time slots, your parent submits an in-app check-in. 

Reminders help your parent to not miss check-ins.

Check-ins are fast and simple. Your parent simply confirms being okay or request that you get in touch.

Reminders help your parent not to miss check-ins.

You can set between 1 to 4 check-ins per day, at the time of your choice

Outings registration

Your parent registers their planned activities before leaving home and set an expected duration. When back, they confirm being safely back home. 

A single tap to confirm being safely back home.

Kiosk-mode (optional)

For parents not in the habit of checking their phone, you can use a dedicated iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad on a stand. This triggers special features that helps your parent successfully comply.

When your parent has to take action, the screen lights up and hence will grab their attention.   

Also, a sound plays when the required action is about to expire.

Hands-free safety with Siri Shortcuts

With “Hey Siri” near an iPhone, iPad or HomePod, your parent can check in or request your assistance with their voice only, without the need to physically reach a device.

Privacy-first

Information submitted by your parent are not disclosed to you unless we suspect a safety issue. The app won't change your relationship and you’ll continue to learn what your parent has been up to through your calls and visits.

You and other relatives will only get to see check-in confirmations if no safety issues have been suspected.

We exclusively use
Sign in with Apple which offers best-in-class privacy options when signing up to an app. 

You and other relatives will only get to see check-in confirmations when no safety issues have been suspected.

How it works

for you and other relatives

Always in the know

Through the app or right on the watch face of your Apple Watch, you’re always in capacity to confirm we’ve got a fresh update from your parent. It will help you worry less in-between your calls and visits.

Smart alerts

You get an alert if something raises doubt on your parent safety. Dooinwell alerts are delivered to your iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, and - when critical - they appear and play a sound even on a device that is in Silent or Do Not Disturb mode.

Well informed, only when you need to

In addition to sending an alert, a suspicious situation momentarily unlocks access to information that helps you assess whether there are reasons to worry.

The Dooinwell service is not an emergency alert system. The safety of your parent also requires their capacity to contact emergency services at all times.
