Technological advances have made it much easier and safer for seniors to remain in their home as they age. Here are just a few that may help you as a family caregiver.

GrandCare System

This technology advanced system was designed with both seniors and their caregivers in mind. It provides a user-friendly touchscreen that does not require computer literacy. It provides easy to read icons with large lettering. But best of all is what it accomplishes.

  • Easy access to socialization, entertainment and communication through Facebook photo sharing, video chats, games including synapse stimulating brain benders, and websites such as news and weather.
  • Family members can send pictures, messages, reminders, voice messages, family videos and music to this integrated system.
  • Motion monitoring analyzes patterns of behavior in order to alert the caregiver if something out of the ordinary occurs. This includes missed medication, unusual activity or no activity and opening of doors and windows. Alerts are received via call, email or text.

MobileHelp

In addition to a traditional medical alert device, this system is also a GPS mobile tracking device which does not require a landline for operation. It works as a personal emergency system when at home or away from home. When alert system is triggered by the click of a button, the caregiver and an emergency medical response team are alerted. You can also add an optional automatic fall detection button to the device.

TabSafe

TabSafe is one of the more technologically advanced medication management systems on the market. It reminds your parent when it’s time to take their medication, dispenses the medication and alerts caregivers should a dose be missed.

TV Ears

TV Ears allows your parent to set the headset volume and tone of their television without affecting the volume for others that are listening. The tips provide acoustically sealed chambers that limit background noise, making it easier for seniors to hear the dialogue and their favorite shows.

Elder Care Provider

While technology has made it easier for seniors to remain in their homes, nothing compares to the presence of a caregiver or care provider. An elder care provider can assist your parent with all the daily activities of living when you’re unable to be there. They can help with dressing, bathing and meal preparation. An elder care provider assists with transportation and running errands and can accompany your parent on their daily walks. They perform light housekeeping while providing your parent with that all-important aspect of caring—companionship.
