Technology for Family Caregivers

Everyone wants to grow old in their own home. Your loved one is no exception – they want to be in their familiar surroundings with their years of memories. “Aging in place” and living at home and in the community longer actually can mean happier and healthier lives. But still, you worry about them. You can’t be there every minute of the day, so your loved one’s safety at home is always a concern. Fortunately, there are many technologies geared to keep your care recipient safe and secure, and to relieve some of your worries.
