Advances in Technology and Senior Care
Medical technology is always moving forward and this is a big benefit to the senior population, especially those individuals that want to enjoy the comforts of living in their own homes for as long as they possibly can.
Paradise In-Home Care is a service for seniors that want the option of being able to stay in their own homes and enjoy their already established peace and comfort, all while still receiving the amount of care and attention that they need and deserve. Living alone can be tough and taxing on the elderly, but this doesn’t need to be the case for your family. Finding a skilled caregiver that will allow your loved one to continue to live the lifestyle that they want can be tough, but this is something that Paradise excels at assisting with.
If you have an elderly loved one that might need a little extra help around the house, in home care is a great option, but it’s not the only thing that you can do to help out. One such example of technology assisting with senior care is the so called “magic carpet.” This advanced piece of computerized help lays sensors all throughout the carpeting of your loved one’s home. The sensors can detect when someone is walking upon them and can even weed out unusual behavior. One example would be if your mother got out of bed in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and fell and broke her hip. The sensor could tell that she had fallen and alert the proper authorities to come and help her out. Help could arrive in just a few short minutes, whereas if she was relying on just a caregiver, she might be stuck lying on the ground until morning.
Another great piece of technology that is becoming common within the elderly population is the emergency call button. This is something that can be worn around the wrist or the neck. If your loved one injures themselves or finds themselves in a troubling situation, they only need to press the button, and a call center is alerted. The operator can then speak with them over the receiver, and if they need help, emergency crews can be dispatched.
These things are all precautionary tools that can allow your elderly loved one to enjoy the comforts of their home for much longer. However, no amount of technology can replace the human touch. This is what Paradise In-Home Care provides, and they do a very good job of it. Technology can be useful, but human contact is often heartwarming and no computer or machine can duplicate this. Their caregivers become a part of the family, offering love and compassion in a way that they might not get otherwise. A lot of senior citizens have trouble getting out of the house and interacting with others, so a caregiver provides a truly important service just by being a friendly face.
Paradise In-Home Care wants all senior citizens to get the help that they need. This might come in the form of in home assistance, or it could just be a few key pieces of technology and a relative checking in once in a while. Regardless, all people need love and Paradise provides this in a grand way.
