Technologies to Enhance the Way We Provide Senior Care
There are many challenges and risks that seniors who choose to live alone face. While most families want only what’s best for them, most seniors would prefer living their lives in the comforts of their own homes as opposed to living and receiving care in a senior facility.
As one of the most trusted home health care agencies in Omaha, NE, we have a great understanding of one of the key dilemmas which families face. We do our best to respect their senior loved ones’ independence while assuring families that their elders are well cared for and kept safe.
With the technologies provided at Comfort Keepers® of Omaha, NE, families can feel at ease knowing their senior loved ones are in good hands and are being supported by the safest and most effective solutions possible.
What Our Technologies Can Do
An elderly person’s memory inevitably becomes weaker as time passes, making them prone to missing medication and taking care of themselves fully. At Comfort Keepers®, we help seniors avoid over or under medication that can lead to hospitalization, by integrating our SafetyChoice® Medication Solutions that remind them of what medicine to take, the time to take it, and how much.
Here are the following technologies we provide:
• Personal Emergency Response System (PERS)
• Medication Solutions
• Portable PERS (GPS-based PERS Systems)
• Door and Window Sensors
• Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
• Bedside Pressure Mats
• Around the Clock Monitoring System
As a good number of the seniors we care for suffer from Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other related conditions, we provide wearable technologies to help monitor their movements. The monitoring devices we provide, such as the SafetyChoice® Personal Emergency Response System, serve as a way for the seniors to notify us of an emergency. With a simple press of a button, they can get immediate response from the nearest Comfort Keepers® staff.
Apart from our personal emergency response technologies, our home care services also include monitoring systems that can be installed in seniors’ homes. These include smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, window and door sensors, and bedside pressure mats. The bedside pressure mats are designed for seniors who are at risk of falling.
At Comfort Keepers®, we are dedicated to improving the lives of our elders, ensuring their families that they are in great hands, while allowing them to enjoy the comfort of their own homes.
