Elder Care in Rancho Bernardo: Hi-Tech Supervision Tool Hits Market

Surveillance Companionship For Elderly In Rancho Bernardo

Hi-Tech Elder Care Supervision Solution

A company named Golden Age, based in Tennessee, has introduced a product that combines state-of-the-art technology with an operational system so simple that even seniors with very little exposure to computers can use it.

The detailed, customizable surveillance system that Golden Age has developed might be the answer for many who use elder care in Rancho Bernardo or elsewhere during the day, but need a watchful eye on their activity around the clock.

Sensor-Based Observation and Alerts

The foundation of the Golden Age setup is an array of wireless sensors. Each one is sensitive to light, weight, or some other metric, and performs an action—usually sending a text message or phone call to family members—if something out of the ordinary triggers it.

For example, a sensor on a medicine cabinet might alert caregivers if it is opened at an unusual time, like the middle of the night. A motion sensor in the bedroom can automatically turn a light on if it senses that a senior is getting out of bed.

Easy To Use

The system also includes pieces of technology specifically designed for use by seniors with little or no experience using computers. Providers of elder care can help set up a video chat or check email, but Golden Age offers a highly simplified system that most seniors can use by themselves. As far as the sensor system goes, the elderly person does not have to do anything to manage it; it works on its own.

A Solution for Elder Care Supervision in Rancho Bernardo Worth Exploring

Round-the-clock care can be expensive to arrange for seniors, so once this observation system is installed and customized to the house’s unique features, it is ready to send alerts at any moment. Golden Age’s product can be one solution for giving many seniors the ability to continue safely living at home.
