If you’re a caregiver for a senior loved one, this one’s for you.
With the current pandemic causing so much uncertainty in our everyday lives, one thing you don’t want to worry about is staying connected with people you love the most. Older adults are at higher risk for contracting COVID-19, and as a result many are staying home and avoiding close contact with others as much as possible. For seniors living independently, this can lead to feelings of isolation or potential health risks in the absence of caregivers. Our new Cox Homelife Care system can help caregivers stay connected to their loved ones, even from a distance.
Here are some of the perks Homelife Care can offer.
The pandemic has limited our access to the outside world, including access to the people we care about the most. It’s hard to accept that the safest and healthiest thing for our seniors right now is social distancing. However, being apart shouldn’t mean loneliness or that they’re not being cared for. Homelife Care works seven days a week, 365 days a year. You may not be able to see some of your loved ones in person right now, but our Care Professionals ensure there’s always someone there.
Senior Confidence and Independence
With a Homelife Care system, seniors can enjoy more independence knowing there’s always someone there to help. Moreover, it can also alleviate any fear or guilt caregivers may feel while separated from their loved ones. Seniors can enjoy the freedom of living independently without feeling isolated and without interruptions. This system is designed to protect their wellbeing and their privacy with location updates only given in emergency situations. They can go about enjoying activities like cooking, gardening and walking around the neighborhood knowing that in the event of an emergency, help isn’t far behind.
Easy to Use
With this medical-alert system, you don’t need to be physically present to know your loved ones are being cared for. Whether they fall or experience another kind of emergency, the Homelife Care system will connect them to Care professionals who are available 24/7 and ready to help. Customers are monitored using features including:
A mobile Hub powered by cellular connectivity ensures you’re always connected: The Hub with a 24-hour rechargeable battery allows for two-way communication between caregivers and seniors – both at home and on the go.
Automatic Fall Detection Pendent: Designed to be worn at all times, the GPS enabled device will contact a Care Center if it detects a fall in or outside the house, even if the senior can’t call for help. It also provides the location of the incident.
Family App: With this app, caregivers are always in the loop. Notifications provide emergency alerts, incident location and updated details if transportation is necessary. The app also offers appointment and medication reminders and a “check-in” feature to keep everyone connected and keep the caregiver up-to-speed on how their loved one feels each day.
Wherever you are and anywhere loved ones go, Homelife Care keeps you connected. It extends the features of an in-home medical alert system to the outside world using cellular networks. Unlike a cell phone which can be difficult to use in an emergency and easily be lost or forgotten, Homelife Care is designed to always be on hand and ready in the case of an emergency. Equipped with GPS, the system ensures caregivers will always know if, where and when an emergency occurs and what happens next.
Peace of Mind for Seniors and Caregivers
Now more than ever, seniors and their caregivers need peace of mind knowing they’re protected while staying in place. Whether that means being reminded to take medication or assured help is on the way when emergencies arise, Homelife Care has it covered. As a Cox Homelife subscriber, older adults have the confidence of a life-saving connection while caregivers have the visibility they need to monitor and support them from afar.
