Remote Monitoring for the Elderly

September, 2012 TSG_PTIMG_620x920_man

Our partner companies deliver an innovative solution for remote care giving. The technology allows family members and trusted friends to help elderly or disabled loved ones stay in their homes longer. Real-time monitoring gives you insights into their daily routine, helping you understand what a normal living pattern looks like, and then be alerted if anything changes.

Our companies home automation systems, uses a combination of sensors and software tied to a web application. Families choose what to monitor, how to receive the information, and who should be sent alerts. Depending on sensor location, you can receive alerts when your loved one leaves and returns, gets out of bed, opens the refrigerator or medicine cabinet, and if he is moving normally about the house. You can also receive an alert if there is no activity within a specified time, or if your loved one pushes the “contact me” button for help.
Features and Benefits:
  • Secure and Unobtrusive.
  • You’re aware of what’s happening with loved ones while not interfering with their daily routine.
  • Monitored Only by Trusted Caregivers.

 

Through grouping, you control who sees information, what each one sees, and how they receive the information. For example, the primary caregiver may have access to all system information, but a neighbour helping out would only receive email or text notification if an exterior door was left open.

Quality of Life.
We all know there’s no place like home for an elderly loved one. But caring for them can take its toll. Our companies let the elderly or disabled continue to live independently, while their families share the care taking responsibilities between siblings, children, church members, paid professionals, neighbours and other caregivers included in the care network.
Easy to Use.
Your loved one doesn’t need to change his behaviour or learn a new system for both of you to enjoy the benefits of remote monitoring.

Reduced Cost of Care.
For less than the cost of one month in an assisted living facility, you can install one of these remote monitoring systems and monitor your loved one’s activities in the home with messages sent by e-mails, texts, or the internet.

Flexible and Expandable.
You can add additional features, such as automated lighting, to customize your loved one’s home and make it more safe.
