When someone is unable to care for themselves, it could be a result of an illness or medical condition. The right monitoring systems can help seniors identify and prevent dangerous health issues and manage their medication. They also give caregivers peace of mind that they’re keeping their loved ones safe at home.
Identifying and preventing medical emergencies
Medical emergencies are a common concern for seniors and their families. The most common type of emergency is related to a fall, which can result in serious injury or even death if not treated quickly. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), falls are one of the leading causes of death among adults aged 65 years or older.
Other medical emergencies include stroke, heart attack and sudden cardiac arrest–all conditions that require immediate attention from trained medical professionals who can provide life-saving care until paramedics arrive on scene. If you’re concerned about your loved one’s ability to recognize these types of situations as they arise or respond appropriately once they have been identified as an emergency situation, remote patient monitoring may be right for them!
