As technology evolves and becomes more sophisticated, it can be leveraged to help seniors who are experiencing a health crisis.
Specific programs can record the movements of the elderly, providing details such as eating and sleeping patterns. This information can be used to alert caregivers to physical or cognitive changes. These programs, which can be customized, can identify problems at their start.
Another program allows patients to record medical instructions. These instructions can then be re-played—and even translated into different languages—anytime. This can give patients and caregivers the opportunity to make sure they correctly follow medical advice.
Used correctly, technology can provide seniors with greater peace of mind.
