It’s funny how you reach a point in your life when you become the person worrying about your parents. They live alone in the house and for years they live in peace and go about there day to day lives.
Unfortunately, sometimes things happen that interrupts that status quo.
Safety and Security
Falls are very prevalent in the older community. You don’t realise until you start having conversations with different people and how prevalent it is. Sometimes, they end up in hospital for a short stay. Other times they can be in there for a long time and worse still, some never return home to their normal lives.
Mostly, people just want to be able to live their days out in their own homes and enjoy time with their families.
We equip them with a mobile phone, an iPad and maybe a computer. They have the best Smart TV available with foxtel thrown in. So why don’t we have the latest hi tech security system for them to access.
So that’s when you need to start looking at a way that your loved ones can stay at home for as long as they want.
Doctors recommend that you get an Aged Care Assessment (ACAT). This is used to make a recommendation for the type and level of care that will best meet your relatives needs.
This is where a person comes and interviews your relative and asks if there are any areas that they need assistance with. It could mean getting assistance with things like;
- Domestic tasks such as laundry, cleaning or meal preparation,
- Transport to appointments, shopping,
- Assistance with personal care such as showering, dressing, cutting toenails,
- Gardening and home maintenance,
- Medication management,
- After hospital care

They are able to turn lights on and off at the touch of a button. Simplify daily routines with automated temperature, light and security settings.

Monitoring Activity Patterns
Understanding your family member’s activity pattern and getting an alert if it’s out of the ordinary.
Being alerted if your loved one is wandering or leaving the house at odd hours and being able to lock doors that have been left open.
This will not only bring peace of mind to you but also your loved one.
