Meet the New Caregiver: Your Home

Among the tools Mr Vitrofsky uses in his work: air purification systems that remove contaminants, pathogens and (at a higher cost) particles that carry viruses; custom water filters based on local aquifer data; and twilight simulation lighting that mimics natural sunlight.

Most of Mr. Vitrofsky's customers are wealthy, but his company's packages start at just $ 2,500 for easy installation that includes basic lighting, air and water monitoring using Darwin technology. From there, prices rise exponentially.

Mr Feirstein, who hired HEDSouth to customize the technology in his house, spent around $ 300,000. "Doug has the best in class," said Vitrofsky.

Since the outbreak of the pandemic, interest in his company's services has more than doubled, Vitrofsky said. "Whole Foods is wellness, Smartwater is wellness, Equinox Gym is wellness – everyone has used that wellness term to try and sell their product," he said. “But nobody talked about wellness alone. Now the whole world is focused on being healthy and not wanting to die. "

In Florida, the epicenter of real estate wellness, some developments are taking it a step further by building homes with on-site private health care. CC Homes, a South Florida developer, announced a partnership with Baptist Health South Florida last month. Residents of two of their communities, Canarias in Downtown Doral and Maple Ridge in Ave Maria, are receiving telemedicine services from Baptist doctors through a health package that includes HD cameras and infrared thermometers that check their ears, noses, eyes and lungs can in their own homes.

In downtown Miami, the Legacy Hotel and Residences will include an on-site medical diagnostic center with AI support to track residents' health through body scans, posture tests, blood tests and more.

"As a society, we're pretty consistently told that technology and wearables provide data about us and what you can track can change," said Noah Waxman, founder of Cactus, the company that builds Legacy's diagnostic center. “Rooms and places like this are becoming more and more desirable. Because there is no way your phone can do what this diagnostic center can for the next five years. "
