Find Comfort in Home Monitoring Systems
At Comfort Keepers Grayslake, we work to help your loved one stay in the comfort of their home for as long as safely possible. We believe it is important for your senior loved one to maintain their independence for as long as possible, giving them autonomy and a sense of freedom. However, there can also be many risks associated with being away from them, especially in the event of an emergency. Different special needs and chronic illnesses only complicate these situations. Experience peace of mind with Comfort Keepers® selection of home monitoring systems, and learn about the different available systems that can provide protection for your loved one while they live on their own.
Bedside Pressure Mats and Motion Detectors
Bedside pressure mats and motion detectors are offered to provide more protection for seniors who are at risk for falling or suffering from dementia. These are especially valuable when family and friends are away. The pressure mats are also known as bed alarms, and they can be placed near the bed as well as in other crucial areas like the bathroom, near stairs, and in the kitchen. An alarm is triggered when pressure is applied to the mat, prompting an emergency notification to be sent to the SafetyChoice® Centralized Monitoring Station responders. Motion detectors are typically placed in a central location of the home. When activated, the SafetyChoice® Centralized Monitoring Station is signaled. They will call to make sure an intruder did not set off the detector and make sure that the homeowner is safe.
Window and Door Alarms
Door and window sensors are a smart safety measure for loved ones who suffer from dementia and may often wander. The sensors are programmed to alert the SafetyChoice® Centralized Monitoring Station when either a door or window is opened. They will then contact those who are listed as a designated responder. These sensored alarms can be turned off during the day when family and caregivers are present, allowing them to open and close windows and doors as necessary.
Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are essential to have in every home. They alert homeowners in the event of a fire or when carbon monoxide is present. If there is a fire, the SafetyChoice® Smoke Detector alarm will go off and notify the SafetyChoice Centralized Monitoring Station to dispatch the local fire department. Help will also be sent if the SafetyChoice Carbon Monoxide Detector is triggered. Those inside of the home at the time will be communicated with to ensure they leave the home as soon as possible.
