Advanced Technology Provides Three Important Benefits to Home Care
1. Improves Positive Health Outcomes for Seniors
One of the ways that technology can have a direct impact on senior care is through medication solutions. Comfort Keepers provides technology-assisted medication solutions that range from automated daily medication reminders to advanced medication dispensing technology. It is estimated that 30% of all admissions to hospitals among seniors 65+ can be attributed to failure to follow prescribed medication. Through technology solutions from Comfort Keepers, seniors can live independently in their homes, while still taking correct medication combinations and dosages.
2. Provides Means for Immediate Help in Case of Emergency
For seniors who want to live alone in their own homes but remain in danger of falling or experiencing other emergencies, Comfort Keepers has a solution: PERS by SafetyChoice®. Through this SafetyChoice® technology, a fallen senior can press a button and quickly summon help. The ability to receive quick treatment after an emergency drastically reduces the likelihood of long-term effects and reduces the extent of injuries and illnesses resulting from the emergency that the senior experienced.
3. Monitors Alzheimer's and Dementia-Related Wandering
According to the Alzheimer's Association, if a wandering senior is not found within 24 hours, they have a 50% chance of getting seriously injured or even dying. Through Comfort Keepers senior care technology solutions, the movements of seniors with Alzheimer's or other dementia-related conditions can be closely and safely monitored to help keep every senior loved-one safe.
