Independent living for an elderly person, especially if the person has dementia can be a worry for family members and carers.
You need to know the person is safe at all times which can be a constant worry for you as the carer especially if you have to work or look after children.
Often care home costs and the trauma for the person involved in leaving their family home makes it almost impossible for you to contemplate making your loved one leave their home to move into a nursing home or into residential care.
So is there an answer that suits both yourself and your elderly parent or family member that you care for. The answer is yes. With an independent living monitoring system you can have the peace of mind knowing that your parent or family member is able to continue to live in their own home with the ability to allow you to be alerted if there is any change in their circumstances.
With an independent living system installed into the home of the person you can have 24 hour a day, 7 days a week cover allowing the person to continue to live a normal a life as possible in the comfort of their own home but one which also allows you to be alerted should the person have a fall, become ill or need assistance.
How does the independent living system work?
It is an easy self install system that passively monitors and will send out an alert message if a problem is detected (e.g., if a person went to the bathroom in the middle of the night and could not return to bed after a period of time).
Alert messages can be sent to a mobile phone or to a 24 hr Monitoring Center .That could be yourself if you set up the system or any other person that you delegate to receive alerts like a family friend or family member.
If there is no response to the calls from the 24 hr Monitoring Centre they can escalate the alert to the emergency services. The system also allows for the person to make emergency panic calls if they need urgent attention by triggering a Personal Alarm (included free with the system).
There are many benefits of this home monitoring system over other conventional systems like monitoring devices worn around the neck. We highlight some of the great benefits that an independent living monitoring system can give below.
