Commenting on the article, the in-home health care services provider notes that high-tech is making home health care for the elderly easier, but looking after ill and disabled seniors will still be a full-time job

Technology can be powerful, but there is no substitute for the help of a compassionate and skilled caregiver.

Tender Caregivers also notes that, while technology is making it easier to keep tabs on those we love, at a certain point many families find themselves calling on outside help....

An August 28 article in MedCity News discusses a new report forecasting that the use of home health technologies will triple by 2020, particularly in the United States and Canada. Moreover, a spokesman for Research firm Triactica cites the aging of the general population as a major reason for the growth of this market. Tender Caregivers, a provider of in-home health care services for the elderly in California and Virginia, notes that technology has already made it possible for more elders to be cared for in the comfort of their own homes than ever before. However, the firm also notes that looking after ailing and disabled seniors remains a challenging task that is very often extremely difficult for spouses and family members without some outside support.

The explosion in home health care technology has provided everything from home monitoring systems and easy blood glucose testing, to in-home dialysis machines, says Tender Caregivers. A great many of the home-monitoring systems have made it possible for relatives to care for relatively independent seniors while maintaining busy lives of their own. At the same time, the firm points out, especially when seniors are in need of regular physical assistance, there is no substitute for the compassionate and knowledgeable assistance of an actual human being, and even the most loving, dedicated, and concerned family support system has its limit. Also, more elaborate home health-care systems, including dialysis machines, may work best when operated by experienced personnel.

Due to the sometimes constant need for support of aging and ill individuals, spouses and children of elders with serious healthcare challenges can often find themselves at wit’s end. Tender Caregivers also notes that, while technology is making it easier to keep tabs on those we love, at a certain point many families find themselves calling on outside help of in-home caregivers who are tasked with providing ongoing care to older individuals. From 24/7 live-in care to shorter time commitments ideal for giving much-needed breaks to resident family members, Tender Caregivers notes that the firm’s services can be a crucial component in the compassionate and loving support system all seniors needs to live a full and happy life.

Assistance provided by Tenders Caregivers includes a broad assortment of tasks, from basic hygiene and health matters, to assistance with meals and laundry as well as shopping, errands, and assistance with various sorts of paperwork when necessary. They can also assist with light daily exercise and can even participate in social events when appropriate.

Readers who are responsible for caring for a disabled or infirm senior and who would like assistance in providing excellent care to them around the clock are invited to contact Tender Caregivers for more information on elderly home care.
