Around The Clock Monitoring Can Be Provided By Comfort Keepers' In Home Senior Care In Wichita, KS
Find out how our in home senior care providers go the extra mile by providing around the clock monitoring for you and your home in Wichita, KS
When a senior loved one has dementia, Alzheimer's disease, or another condition that affects their ability to remain safe, many families consider nursing homes or other institutional environments. The good news is that with Comfort Keepers' around the clock home monitoring support there are other options.
Comfort Keepers caregivers have specialized training to work with seniors who need cognitive support or protection due to lapses in memory or judgment. No matter how hard family members may try, they cannot be available 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. Further, even if they could, most family members would not want to take away a loved one's privacy to that degree. Comfort Keepers’ in home senior care provides support when family members cannot be there and monitoring systems can do the rest.
Some of the home monitoring technology includes alarms, sensors, and pressure mats. Devices range from door and window security and motion sensors to carbon monoxide and smoke detectors. Unlike standard alarms and sensors, Comfort Keepers alarms include third-party notification. Messages can be sent to family members and/or a central response center based on preferences.
Pressure mats help caregivers know when seniors are out of bed. When a senior steps onto the mat a message is sent to the caregiver to alert them of this action. This is important if wandering has become an issue. This way, seniors can have the privacy they deserve while remaining safe.
Technology is also available for senior use. For example, a SafetyChoice® Centralized Monitoring Station allows seniors to ask for help or summon their in home senior care provider with the touch of a single button. This service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
