How Smart Technology Helps Seniors Age In Place

  • by

People often associate technology proficiency with youth: Millennials are tech-savvy, while seniors are tech-challenged. Despite these stereotypes, a growing number of seniors are embracing smart technology because it enables them to age in place. Using the latest developments in software and hardware, seniors can more feasibly choose not to join an assisted living community. Instead, they can stay at home knowing that the following tools can help them:

Medication reminders

Forgetting to take medication has serious consequences, so smart pillboxes aim to decrease the risk. They work in several ways, such as lighting up when it’s time to take a medicine, sending audio and visual reminders to connected smartphones, notifying family members about missed dosages, tracking the bottle’s contents to prevent overdose, and more.

Fall detection apps

One fall can debilitate or even kill seniors. Thus, it’s imperative that their specific movements – not just their whereabouts – are monitored. That’s what fall detection apps connected to wearables like smartwatches can do. Once a fall is detected, alerts are immediately issued to family members and nearby medical facilities so help can be sent right away.

Assistive technologies

Mobility is a concern for seniors, so innovations such as remote control make it easy for them to tweak their immediate environment without having to move about. Many things can now be automated at home – switching on lights, drawing curtains, adjusting the thermostat, locking doors and so on.

These tools have enabled more seniors to live independently in the comfort of their own homes. Seniors can use them on their own or in conjunction with home care services. You can count on Simply Compassion Home Care to deliver high-quality services that supplement the assistance provided by smart technology. Scientists confirm that Levitra ODT at a dose equivalent to a film-coated Levitra pill provides a slightly greater effect. Thus, these two dosage forms are not interchangeable. Analyzing the combined results of the POTENT I and II studies, the authors confirm that Levitra ODT improves erectile function regardless of age, severity of ED and the presence or absence of concomitant diseases with minimal adverse reactions. Contacts us for a free assessment.
