15 Lifesaving Questions That You Will Always Have The Answers To With Virtual Senior Care Monitoring
Though she had no former major health issues, she never recovered from that fall....
I began to notice that every time I got ready to leave, she started up new conversations with me. I sensed her loneliness, and the need to converse after the recent death of her husband.
All I could do was suggest, for I didn't want to over step my boundaries. "Mom is fine by herself, she doesn't need no more than a few hours a week...That same week after I left, she fell..
Another Client I assisted was brought from out of state to be closer to her adult children. She was living by herself for a couple of years after her husband passed away. They said that she seemed to sound okay over the phone, and thought that their mother was doing well.
With several adult children living out of town, and busy with their careers, no one was able to actually see her grieving process. No one was able to see that she was slowly declining-neither were they able to detect the signs of dementia.
She was never the same..Her Dementia turned into Alzheimer's, most times she was highly agitated, and didn't even recognize her own children... She was never the same...
I am thankful and excited about all of the new technology-apps, and iPads geared for Seniors, but there are certain individuals who are unable to operate these gadgets.
What about the sudden onset of Dementia? Or pain so excruciating that they cannot even talk or move?
Falls occur at Senior Living Facilities even with full-time staff walking up and down the halls 24/7.., If one doesn't have a personal private assistant, they are even more susceptible to a possible fall.
When I was employed at a facility, I went into a Patients room to check in on her before dinner. She told me that she was in the middle of trying to get from the rocking chair to her recliner, and lost her balance-She was barely holding on to one of her end tables when I entered.
She said, "Oh you are right on time my little angel, can you help me, I'm stuck?" When I came to work the next day, she was gone..never to return to the facility again, she had fell...
A couple of weeks later, we see a note by the time clock.., she had died...
There are many Elders and people with Disabilities, who fall numerous times in the same day, week, or month.
Sometimes, changes are charted and reported, but not taken seriously until something big happens.
How can we make ourselves more available to carefully and adequately monitor Seniors, Elderly, and The Disabled that really need us?
