- In-home monitoring is a fast-growing area of elderly care. Motion sensors on front doors, furniture, appliances and even pill bottles alert caregivers to changes in routines. Fall monitors, such as the Posey Keepsafe, work with pressure sensors on beds or chairs to alert caregivers to abnormal movement.
- Telemedicine — two-way interactive communication between patients and health care providers using an Internet connection — provides seniors with access to life-saving care. Telemedicine can save time and transportation costs, reduce the need for 24-hour monitoring by family members, and help improve the patient’s mental status through independent living. It also improves the outcome in time-sensitive cases such as monitoring stroke symptoms. The quicker a patient is diagnosed and sent to a hospital for treatment, the better the outcome.
