Older family members can live independently for longer periods of time thanks to technological advancements in the area of smart alarm wellness systems. According to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), nearly 90% of seniors want to remain in their homes as they age. Most retirees (82%) would prefer to remain in their own homes even if they needed day-to-day assistance or ongoing health care.
However, for relatives of an older adult, it can be a delicate balance ensuring their aging loved ones’ daily activities haven’t changed while trying to achieve reassurance that they are safe. The best solution is to equip the living space of a relative senior citizen with an alarm system that can always keep an eye on their welfare.
Ensure Their Safety
How is Mom doing? Has Dad left the house yet? With Alarm.com’s Wellness solutions, you are always in the know.
Utilizing activity awareness and predictive analytics, this Wellness solution monitors the quality of life and well-being discreetly around the clock. It’s never been easier to see if a change has occurred in your loved one’s behavior patterns or if a life-safety emergency is about to occur. Wellness is a system that uses non-intrusive sensors throughout the home to alert you when meaningful activity has occurred.
With the Wellcam camera, your dad can call you with just a touch when his phone isn’t nearby. Better yet, you can see and speak with him through the Wellcam video feed in your app.
Stay One Step Ahead
Any increase or decrease in activity? Wellness can help detect them by alerting you to a change in routine or unusual behavior.
- Wandering: Dad’s bed sensor indicates he hasn’t been in bed since 2 a.m.
- Appetite: Mom has opened the refrigerator door less than usual this week.
- Inactivity: Dad’s chair sensor indicates that he sits down more and gets up less.
Receive alerts informing you of these various situations and receive reassurance knowing activity is happening during the hours you’d expect.
In addition to bed sensors, emergency buttons, and door sensors, the Wellness Solution can connect to a security system, lights, locks, thermostats, video cameras, and more. So, full automation is possible and seamless!
