Celebrating Valentines with your Aging in Place Loved One
Celebrating holidays, specifically Valentine’s Day, doesn’t have to be expensive. This article I found from the Daily Caring provides many FREE ideas for celebrating Valentine’s Day with your aging-in-place loved ones, with links to cards, arts-and-crafts projects, and games that will make your holiday special, but not expensive.
Special, but not expensive…that goes for how we care for our parents too on a daily basis, not just holidays. As seniors age, we all think about how, and where, care should be provided. Should Dad move to an assisted living home? Can we keep Mom at home, if we provide part-time care? Is there a better aging in place solution that doesn’t cost a fortune?
One option is to keep an elderly parent/patient in the comfort of their own home and use a remote monitoring system. Without the use of loud alarms, or prying video cameras, Safe at Home Sensors by Aging in Place Monitoring allows you to check in remotely to a portal that tracks where the loved one is in the home as well as historical data such as, “how long was Mom in bed last night?” The portal allows you set up rules for notifications too that come to you through a text, or phone call, or email, and these rules can notify as many people as you like through the use of a call-tree.
Celebrate Valentines Day with your elderly loved one. And on any given day at any time of the day, check on your loved one without a direct phone call or text. Give yourself a gift this Valentines Day with the Remote Monitoring Systems from Safe at Home – it will be good for your heart.
