Know where your beloved is around the clock!
Older adults are at higher risk of incidents like falls and injuries, syncope, and stroke. Many of them have multiple diseases and may experience exacerbation. Acute states e.g. respiratory infections may cause sudden decline of the health status. All these states require quick response and treatment to promote full recovery. Sudden changes in wellbeing usually affect daily activity and impair mobility. Therefore, the possibility to monitor localization of an older family member may increase safety, augment self-confidence of the older individual.
Moreover, people with cognitive impairment may experience sudden change in mental health called acute confusional state or delirium due to multiple causes. Additionally, they may become disoriented in place, especially in new environments. Therefore, outdoor localization monitoring may be extremely helpful in such situations.
Be informed in time if her/his health is down!
Sudden decline of health in older adults may be due to multiple causes including infections, dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, diarrhea, falls, medication errors and many more. Timely reaction and providing medical assistance are crucial to start adequate treatment and prevent complications. An older individual may not know how serious the situation is and may think that “feeling not well” is normal. The possibility to access health parameters by a caregiver creates opportunity for early diagnosis of health problems and promptly seeking medical care.
Take advantage of health data at hand in conversations with doctors!
Medical visits may be stressful for older individuals and their caregivers. On the other hand, doctors ask for some objective measures of health status, e.g. blood pressure, heart rate, glycemia, weight, changes in medication regimen and others. Having physical condition data at hand in a mobile device may make the process of exchanging information more efficient and may prevent errors due to miscommunication. Additionally, it may increase patient’s satisfaction with care and augment patient’s participation and self-care. Using novel technologies for communication in health care may improve the quality of care based on accurate and timely data.
