Caregivers: Be One Step Ahead Thanks to Smart Home Technology
If you are one of the nearly 35 million Americans who currently provide unpaid care for a family member aged over 50, new smart home technology is available that can support your loved one’s independence, and also provide you priceless peace of mind – for much less than you think.
More than an Emergency Button
Now, smart home technology is stepping into this gap with connected living solutions designed with both the older adult AND caregiver in mind. Originally developed to alert homeowners to unwelcome activity, connected home security technology can keep both family and professional caregivers connected to aging adults and one step ahead of emerging health issues instead of reacting after an emergency has occurred.
Alarm Engineering’s Independent Living solution is powered by alarm.com, an intelligent smart home security platform trusted by millions, combines hardware and software to benefit you.
Unlike older technology which alerts carers only after something bad happens, we can now intelligently monitor quality of life through a suite of discreet activity sensors and smart devices installed around the home to proactively alert caregivers to potential health issues detected in real-time activity data.
A USA Today report explains: “Wellness can report about changes in activity levels, sleeping and eating patterns, bathroom visit frequency and medication adherence, as well as emergency situations like wandering out of the home or falls.”
For the older adult, Independent Living Solutions offers a full suite of smart home technology to make life safer and easier. Devices like smart thermostats and smart lighting can be automated and even voice-controlled, providing comfort and security without adding complexity. Video and smart locks enhance daytime security and make access easier for family and homecare visitors. Because this technology uses the security system as the brain, service is on hand, 24-7, to respond to an emergency signal or panic button alert from the home.
As more and more family caregivers learn about these new Independent Living Solutions, commercial care providers are also discovering the benefits. These scalable solutions can be installed throughout a residential community, enabling staff to develop personalized care plans, based on data-driven insights, that better serve residents’ needs.
