With new technology, many of our day-to-day tasks have become simpler. Seniors can especially benefit from the latest smart devices to make their lives easier and smoother, especially those who remain home. Let's take a look at 3 devices that can help your loved one live easier and safer.
Seniors who live at home may not always have family members nearby to check on them. Luckily, in-home sensors and alerts provide peace of mind to seniors and their families. These sensors can detect movement or changes in behavior.
HoneyCo is a start-up company that provides seniors and their family members the ability to receive 24/7 alerts about what is going on in the home. Sensors are placed throughout the home to detect movement. These sensors detect and report unusual movement, such as your loved one getting up at 3 am to use the bathroom but never coming back to bed. You can also receive alerts if there is no movement from your loved one at all.
Garage Door Opener App
If your loved one is forgetful and often misplaces their garage door opener, an app can handle their needs quickly and efficiently. Apps can be added to a smartphone or tablet for ease of use.
The Chamberlain MyQ Smart Garage Door Opener is a device that can be installed in your senior's home and works through a free app on the phone. The app allows the user to open and close their garage door with just a click of the phone. If they forget to close the garage door behind them, they simply use their phone to close it instead of walking back to the garage.
Blood Pressure Monitor
Many seniors deal with high blood pressure and must monitor themselves every day. Luckily, there is technology available that can monitor blood pressure and share the information with doctors or family members.
The Blip Blood Pressure Monitor can support 2 user accounts, meaning the information recorded by the senior can be sent to a loved one. As the user takes a reading, the monitors automatically upload it using an existing wi-fi connection. The second user also receives notifications via smartphone or email.
