There are an estimated 54.1 million people in this country over the age of 65, many of whom are realizing the importance of aging at home. That means it is more important now than ever to ensure that our senior loved ones are safe in their homes.
For seniors, aging in place can be a hugely beneficial thing to mental and physical health. However, it is important to have a plan for caregivers and seniors so everyone is aligned. There are ways to make this process easier by using technology in certain situations.
Families can utilize the following tips and simple technologies to keep their senior loved ones safe in their homes:
- Digital Pill Dispenser (caregiver or family member can program via an app for foolproof medication dispensing)
- Apple Watch Series 7 (fall detection feature)
- Smart Smoke Alarm (automatically alerts family members via mobile phone)
- Smart Doorbell (residents can see who is at the door and talk to them without opening it)
