How Technology Is Making Remote Senior Care Possible
UK – As more people are living longer, better quality of life and independence into older age are of increasing interest. One way to help preserve the self-sufficiency of seniors while ensuring that they’re cared for when needed is using remote devices to help monitor their well being as well as provide assistance if desired.
Meet Birdie, your care companion – a digital platform service for family members and care management to remotely oversee and coordinate the health and wellbeing management of an elderly relative using in-home monitoring equipment, including sensors, cameras and bracelets. Birdie allows family members to sign up for Birdie’s services via the app and add other individuals who may be responsible for monitoring the elder’s health and wellbeing in order to coordinate support, transportation, doctor’s appointments and meal deliveries. Through the app, everyone is connected and informed of any occurrences and has access to additional services from third-party service providers.
