How Smart Home Security Helps Aging Loved Ones
Support Aging-in-Place Lifestyles With Technology
Seniors live with more risks overshadowing their daily activities. That’s why many seniors or their caretakers choose communities where the elderly can receive constant supervision. However, according to an Alarm.com study, 87% of seniors want to stay in their homes as they age, but they share fears about mobility, feeding themselves and staying safe.
This more recent lifestyle choice is commonly called “living in place.” Instead of heading off to a nursing home or elderly community, living in place gives older people the opportunity to spend their advanced years where they feel most comfortable –
at home. Find out how that’s possible with some integrated smart home security technologies that we install and customize right here in Spring Hill, Tennessee.
Medical Alert Buttons
When a younger adult falls, they might end up with sore muscles and a bruise. However, when an elderly person falls, the injuries could prove fatal. When your loved one experiences a sudden medical event, both of you want to know they’re one button press away from professional assistance. Backed by a 24/7/365 response team and automation Fall Detection, MobileHelp devices can even notify an expert when your loved one can’t press a button.
This highly-rated PERS (personal emergency response system) minimizes the stigma of wearing alert technology by creating more stylish devices, including one that looks like an Apple Watch! Seniors without a landline won’t need to pay extra to receive the benefits that MobileHelp provides, as the devices use cellular technology for both the mobile and in-home options.
Garnering praise from distinctive sources like USA Today and Reviewed, Alarm.com’s Wellness system provides advanced, intuitive care options that allow elderly people to live independently. Caretakers get complete insights that far surpass the medical alert button. Alarm.com’s Wellness monitors a person’s activity and provides real-time alerts before an emergency happens. As you can see pictured below, you’ll also receive a responsive activity gauge that you can view anytime.
Harnessing the power of AI-enhanced automation, Wellness monitors your loved one’s activities through analytics that track their movements throughout the day. If something seems abnormal, such as when someone stays in bed for longer than usual, Alarm.com’s Up & About system warns you promptly. Like MobileHelp, Wellness also sends notifications when the person you’re caring for can’t push a button.
