Technology is a great way to keep seniors happy, healthy and home for life. With Christmas right around the corner, consider getting your favorite senior a tech gift that they’ll love, that will keep them connected to family, and keep them safe.
The Smart Speaker is an amazing tool for seniors. It allows them to utilize their voice to create lists, play music, check the weather, and even get medication and doctor appointment reminders. The Smart Speaker helps seniors keep track of their lives even when memory fails them.
Did you know that many seniors fall at night because of the dark? They can’t see the trip hazards! Motion sensor lights are a must. These lights come on as soon as they detect motion within 10-feet. This is great to avoid hospital trips and to keep seniors safe.
Instead of worrying about who could be there for your loved one if they fall, get them an Apple Watch. The Apple Watch comes with “fall detection alerts” that you can have sent to you in case they fall. They are also able to contact an Emergency professional right from their watch instead of having to get to a phone.
Do you live far away from your senior loved one? Send them a Facebook Portal. Many seniors use Facebook every day to post pictures and view photos from their families. Facebook Portal takes it to the next level. Video chat with them using this device. The Portal also helps to check who’s at the front door, listen to your favorite music, watch the news and more, hands-free.
Many seniors have a hard time hearing smoke detectors. In case of an emergency, using this smart smoke detector cuts down on the lag time. Receive cell phone alerts when smoke is detected. Nest Protect speaks up if there’s smoke or CO and tells you where it is, so you know what to do. It also lets you know if batteries run low. This keeps the smoke detector working in proper condition to keep your seniors safe.
