    17. 17. Cost Comparison John, who lives in a house with a live-in (asleep overnight) caregiver, has recently fallen a few times at night, and once broke his ankle. Everyone is concerned for his safety. Traditional Approach: Change Asleep Staff to Awake Staff Costs: $12/hr awake staff vs. $7.25/hr asleep staff = $4.75/hr additional $4.75/hr X 8 hrs/night X 365 days/yr = $13,870/yr $13,870 + 25% tax and benefits = $17,338 per year additional cost
    18. 18. Cost Comparison SmartSupport Approach: Use Technology to Alert Asleep Staff When John Gets Out of Bed Costs: $3,000 equipment + 5 yr. depreciation = $600/yr $300/month for monitoring services X 12 months = $3,600 $4,200 per year additional cost John, who lives in a house with a live-in (asleep overnight) caregiver, has recently fallen a few times at night, and once broke his ankle. Everyone is concerned for his safety.
