As seniors age, many still wish to remain in the comfort of their own home. Elder care services can help with the day to day minutia of getting things done around the house, and companion services ensure that seniors don't feel lonely, but what happens when the caregiver goes home for the day? unless a senior has elected to use 24 hour home care services there will be some period of time when they are on their own. It is during this time when seniors may feel vulnerable or hesitant to go about their daily lives due to the risks of being home alone. For this reason, Comfort Keepers offers a range of additional services and products to support seniors even when our caregivers are not in the home.
With supportive elder care services and products, seniors can receive some of the assistance they would have from a caregiver through the use of technology. Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) give seniors the ability to connect to a 24 hour monitoring center should they fall or have some other accident when a caregiver is not present. Staff at our monitoring centers can contact emergency response personnel or other services in the event of an emergency. We can also support seniors with home monitoring systems to ensure security from break-ins.
Another common issue facing seniors is medication management. Medication issues are a large factor in the decision for many aging adults who end up relocating to nursing homes. It is important to ensure that medications are taken in the correct dosages and at the right times for maximum effectiveness. Medication management technologies from Comfort Keepers ensure that medicine is dispensed at the correct time and in the correct dosage.
