EMAcare’s extensive range of services include; consolidation and management of medical records, comprehensive patient and family intake, assessing medical needs, outlining long and short-term goals and patient advocacy and with our couples discount- you can’t go wrong!
One of the beauties of living in the 21st century is the endless supply of online tools and new-age products that are designed to de-stress healthcare management and make everyone lives easier- something especially appreciated when managing from afar. EMACare’s healthcare professionals are trained to help client’s choose the perfect tools to sustain long term ease and comfort with long-distance medical and healthcare management.
Here are a few of our favourite tools:
Simply put the Mediminder is an electronic pill dispenser, similar to the ones delivered from your pharmacy with added features that ensure the safety of our loved ones when they take their medication. The Mediminder was chosen due to simple design, family alert option and most importantly- its lock feature so the wrong medication is never taken.
With so medication management apps its hard to choose a favourite! The Medisafe App was chosen due to its clear interface, alert sent to a family member if the user forgets to take their medication and drug interaction warnings. Bonus points were given to its other features such as videos and articles of your medications.
The SimpleMed+ is a smart medication dispenser. Its accompanying app is easy to use but needs a caregiver or pharmacist input. Once again we love the alert feature to a family member, which allows for remote management, especially important the elderly who’s children and family members live abroad.
If you are looking for something more sophisticated- Hero’s automatic pill dispenser is your thing! Not only does it separate the medication into the correct dosages, the accompanying app sends alerts to a family member (a must!) and is very easy to use physically- so its perfect for the elderly population.
We saved the best for last!
The caring village app is exactly what it sounds like. It creates a community through which families, friends and caregivers can unit to provide a supportive environment and unified care for a loved one. All its features are designed to facilitate clear communication so nothing is overlooked.
Thank you for the zoom (and all your updates). It was great. I wish the news was like that. Straight forward, factual, unemotional. Bravo to both of you ladies!!
My experience with Ema Care has been so positive that I wanted to share it in case it could help someone else. Eight days ago my daughter, a Shanah Bet student, called to say she wasn’t feeling well and had symptoms of Covid-19. I was put in touch with an Infectious Disease specialist who recommended Ema Care. I reached Dr. Eliana Aaron easily and signed my daughter up. The next morning, Ema Care gave my daughter a telehealth exam and provided her with prescriptions, as well as a list of...
I would like to also add my compliments, you exceeded my already very high expectations. You can certainly send other schools our way for a recommendation.

Hello Dr. Aaron. I cannot thank you enough for providing not only crucial information but a framework that gave us stability and allowed us to function (instead of descending into chaos, which undoubtedly would have happened, if not for you). At the risk of waxing dramatic, I will tell you that when I think of what you've done these past couple of months, what comes to mind is Rav Yohanan Ben Zakai asking Vespasian to give him Yavneh ve-Hakhameha, thus saving the entire enterprise of Talmud...
I just wanted to say I think Dr. Eliana is one of the most rationale people providing the public with current information. I have no idea how I came across your Facebook page but I love what you say, just heard the one about reopening shuls, and the way you present it. clear, concise and factual. I work in Toronto on COVID 19 and just wanted to let you know that you are doing a fantastic job. I think here there are community doctors putting out information and I have told them they are too...
