Three Technologies to Make A Caregiver’s Life Easier
Every day, millions of Americans spends their days in the role of caregiver. In fact, it is estimated that over 65 million Americans are non-professional caregivers, usually family members who are looking after a loved on. While the experience can be wonderful and rewarding, it’s not without difficulties. The nature of caregiving is emotionally and physically demanding, and breaks and time off is rare.
Thankfully, modern technology has been able to make the lives of caregivers easier. If you’re a caregiver, here are three you may want to incorporate into your daily routine:
Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS)
Caregivers are busy and need to make sure they stick to a regular routine. Preparing meals, doing the shopping, speaking with doctors, and managing finances all take time and attention, and so caregivers cannot always be there to watch the loved one. A PERS device is a life-saving technology that alerts the caregiver and medical professionals of an emergency even when the loved one is alone.
It’s natural that, with everything a caregiver must pay attention to, there will be some things he or she will forget. However, medication should not be one of these. Medication reminders help caregivers administer medicine in the correct dosage at the right time, taking care of one less task.
One of the most important parts of caregiving is ensuring a daily hygiene regimen. However, it doesn’t matter how many times a caregiver has performed this routine, helping someone who is elderly or disabled bathe every day is a continuous physical challenge. Tubs that are specially designed for the disabled or elderly and can make an incredible improvement in a caregiver’s quality of life. Walk-in doors reduce the physical stress of lifting the loved one into the tub, and those with jet technology provide many on-going therapeutic benefits that can improve the well-being and quality of life of the one being cared for.
