Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 23, 2011
With over 43 million adult’s nationwide now providing care for loved ones, according to a 2010 AARP study, the need for effective homecare solutions has never been greater. “Seniors want to live at home for the most part,” says Dan Stone, Assured Independence’s co- founder, “Our goal is to provide a new way for caregivers to support elderly loved ones at home. Our solutions utilize a series of wireless sensors that passively monitor activities patterns within a home, also known as ‘Activities of Daily Living’. If something abnormal occurs, caregivers are notified via text or email. Furthermore, caregivers are able to view real time and historical activity patterns via a secure website.”
“Ultimately, these tools help caregivers provide a higher level of care and reduce costs for seniors who live at home,” says Dave Hunt, “Imagine knowing when (or if) your mother has forgotten to take her medicine or prepare a meal or has fallen down with no one around”
The company has a strong belief that the role of a caregiver will never be replaced with technology. Instead, these solutions will provide crucial information about activity in the home when a senior is alone. If the systems detect that ‘activities of daily living’ are not being accomplished, the care plan can be changed. Even more encouraging, pilot programs in other parts of the country are showing that these types of products reduce hospital re-admittance rates.
“This is more than offering products to help seniors live independently. We are keenly interested in helping state and county programs deliver services to seniors in need. “ says Mr. Stone,” I recently attended a community meeting and listened to a county program director announce cuts to vital programs that support seniors in the community. There were literally people in tears. The fact is, traditional methods of delivering services to seniors in need are expensive and budgets are tight. With a starting price of under $600, our solutions will help bridge the gap between tight state budgets and the delivery of much needed services to our elders in the community.”
