Why Telemonitoring is Needed

The number of Americans over the age of 65 will double by 2030, so that factor alone will keep the home care industry busy. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the increased demand for home health aides will be as high as 41% by 2026. The challenge, like so many other industries, is hiring and retention.

Ongoing staffing issues, exacerbated by the recent pandemic, has caused substantial changes to the senior living industry. Families are delaying admission to assisted living and nursing homes, and some assisted living communities are not accepting admissions. That leaves families like yours looking for resources to keep your aging loved ones safe. This is where Telemonitoring saves the day!

#Telemonitoring is a noninvasive, remote way to watch over your aging loved one. It will enhance home care services and increase the level of care for seniors. Using motion detection sensors, our remote care team can monitor activity by movement (no cameras). Lack of movement, or too much movement, will trigger the remote care team’s system to check on your loved one. In the event the senior cannot be reached, predetermined steps are followed to ensure your loved one is safe!

Telemonitoring is more than a sensor system. The remote care team can also help with monitoring vitals such as blood pressure, weight, medications, and more! It provides ongoing records that can be shared with your loved one’s doctors and team. Weekend check-ins on Thursdays gives you peace of mind that your loved one has what they need for the weekend, such as medications and food.

Telemonitoring will also help with isolation. Clients look forward to their calls with their remote care team. It is not just a service, but a relationship. Remote Care Coordinators provide face-to-face video chat addressing one’s psychosocial needs.
