More and more seniors are making the decision to age in place, and luckily, thanks to new innovations in technology, more seniors are able to do just that. Adding some technology to your long-term care plan can help you coordinate care and maintain a safe environment even when caregivers can’t be there. There are a number of devices that can help family members monitor their loved ones at home, like the following:
- Web cams & sensor systems like the AttentiveCare and AT&T Remote Monitor systems provide an inside look at the home, so users can watch for any potential accidents. The sensor systems also send alerts when doors or windows are opened, and even when water is leaking.
- Emergency response pendants give seniors a sense of safety, knowing they can call for help at the push of a button.
- Telehealth monitors can collect readings for a patient’s weight, blood pressure, and other physiological measurements without having to make a doctor’s appointment.
- Automatic pill dispensers remind patients to take their medications by voice message, text, and/or flashing lights, and dispense the right dose at the right time. Many can even call the caregiver in the event that the patient misses a dose.
