Visiting Angels Helps Seniors Embrace Technology for Caregiving Needs

July 10th, 2012

When someone needs extra help to remain living at home, the endless list of new responsibilities for family caregivers can be overwhelming. Thankfully, with the help of professional caregivers such as at Visiting Angels and a little modern technology, aging safely at home can be a practical long-term care solution.

When faced with caregiving challenges, many are compelled to place loved ones into assisted living or nursing homes. But with the use of technology among seniors growing every day, there are now more options than ever. These easy-to-use devices and tools can make home care a more comfortable and convenient option for both seniors and their families, while also enhancing safety and independence. Options include personal emergency response systems for an instant connection to an emergency response service, automatic pill dispensers/reminder systems and webcams combined with sensor monitors to track movement within the home.
