Your mom (or dad) is living in a retirement home some 30 minutes from where you live.
The staff calls you about your mom to let you know she was found out of her room walking around outside without her walker and she fell…again.
Don’t you wish there was a better way to keep track of mom at her retirement home?
Now there is. And better yet you can now keep track of mom using your phone! Yes, technology has finally found its place in senior living spaces and it is helping families and staff better communicate about their loved senior.
A common problem for the families of seniors with memory loss is not being sure if Grams is receiving the care she is supposed to. Maybe you get a phone call about Grams and she has had yet another altercation with the same resident. Memory loss residents need a little more supervision to keep them safe inside & outside their residence.
The staff can only be at so many places at one time and the loss of independence is both frightening and frustrating for the resident & family. What to do?
If you could track Grams at her home and know she was getting her medicine at the exact time she was supposed to take it, you would probably not be as overwhelmed.
A lot of today’s caretakers are the children of Seniors who have families of their own, so time is scarce to say the least. Taking care of a loved senior can take a toll on your finances, health and mental well-being. If Grams lives across town from where the kids go to school you, the caretaker/mom might not have the opportunity to visit Grams as often as you would like.
Now There is a Better Way to Keep Track of Mom at Her Retirement Home!
In case you didn’t know, I’m always looking for new ways to keep Grams safe or even old (aka tried and true!) ways. I want you to have the latest information so you can make decisions to benefit both you & mom.
A lot has been written about the care that should be given to memory loss/Alzheimer seniors but nothing quite compares with this video I share with you below. We talk about the latest state-of-the-art technology designed to make your life & Grams’ retirement living more complete. I believe the technology being used here is the future of senior living as we know it because it creates transparency for the families of seniors.
No more wondering what type of care is being administered to Grams. If you’d like to learn more, watch this 19-minute video below:
Knowing how to keep track of mom at her retirement home is one of the best things you can do, not just for your beloved senior’s safety, but also for your own peace of mind.
This technology truly is the future for retirement communities and it’s one example of how technology can really help in keeping an eye on seniors and also preventing slips, trips, falls or other life-changing events that can have disastrous consequences for seniors.
