3 Ways Technology Helps Assisted Living Centers Effectively Serve Seniors, Wayne, New Jersey

Technology touches each of our daily lives, making us all safer and more connected to one another. Dedicated to improving the lives of older adults, today assisted living communities are using technology to enhance senior care in innovative ways.

3 Ways Technology Enhances Senior Care

1. Safety & Security

Many senior living facilities are using technology to protect their residents. Thanks to advancements in surveillance equipment, caregivers can chart an elderly person’s quality of sleep, mental health, and physical well-being. Around-the-clock security systems, door alarms, cameras, and emergency call buttons are just some of the mechanisms used to ensure senior care. Particularly for those persons diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, security technologies can be lifesaving.

2. Community & Connectivity

Without a strong social network, older adults can experience feelings of isolation, anxiety, and depression. As top-tier senior homes are discovering, laptops, tablets, desktop computers, and phones can keep seniors in contact with family, friends, and even each other. Especially for seniors who are mobility impaired, engaging on platforms such as Skype and Facebook can be crucial to their emotional and mental welfare.   

3. Consistency & Convenience

Last of all, technology helps assisted living facilities improve their quality of care. For instance, caregivers can easily access vital medical information about their residents thanks to software capable of organizing, updating, and storing extensive medical records. Also, by eliminating the possibility of human error, technology allows senior centers to serve their residents with more accuracy and efficiency.
