Many people in Greenville, SC, and surrounding areas have found that the COVID-19 pandemic has created serious problems for the aging population. It has led to an enormous change in lifestyle and increased isolation. More than ever, families and caregivers trying to navigate providing appropriate care while honoring dignity and independence are turning toward technology to extend their care and address today’s serious risks.
What are the challenges created by COVID-19?
- With COVID-19 and other health issues, life-threatening symptoms can develop quickly, so it is essential to access help quickly.
- Increased isolation means fewer people providing help and oversight.
- Many older adults have adopted a solitary and less active lifestyle. A decrease in activity can lead to decreased muscle mass, diminished mobility, and increased risk of falling.
- Loved ones may have increased concerns but do not want to infringe on privacy or independence.
Providing Independence, Ensuring Safety
Fortunately, even amid the continuing serious challenges that COVID-19 has caused, security technologies allow families to play a vital role in ensuring safety while providing the highest levels of activity and autonomy for their loved ones. For example, ProTec’s LifeGuard Medical Alert Response System is a device worn around the wrist or neck that establishes instant two-way communication with our UL Certified Central Monitoring Station at the push of a button. Upon an alert, professionally trained dispatch notify authorities and communicate with emergency personnel, and the caller, while help is en route.
