Senior Care Center has announced that they have published a blog post that presents the best apps for senior citizens. The article is titled, “Top 20 Apps, Programs, and Devices for Seniors and Their Adult Families” and lists 20 apps and devices. Senior Care Center recommends that seniors and their adult families take a look at each one of these to see which one would work best for them.
Casey Ryeback, a representative for Senior Care Center, says, “Seniors and their families already have plenty of responsibilities. From coordinating care to wrestling with health issues and making great memories together, there’s always more to be done for older adults and their adult family members. Luckily, there are a number of gadgets, devices, and apps that can help you and your loved ones navigate life as a senior or a caregiver to one. Whether you need to remind your loved one to take their medication or want your kids to have the best possible relationship with their grandparents, technology can provide the boost you need.”
The first item in the list is GrandPad, which is a simplified version of the iPad, that can be used by people of any age and level of dexterity. It can be used for sending text messages, uploading photos, and making video and audio calls, thus allowing seniors and their adult family members keep in touch.
The second item in the list is Meal Reminder, which can help seniors remember to eat healthy and nutritious foods. This smartphone app can help a senior stick to a planned diet or eat at certain times of the day. Also, visual and auditory clues can be provided by the app to ensure that the senior is notified.
Third on the list is Alarm.com Wellness, which is paired with an at-home security and monitoring system. The app connects with the smartphone of adult family members and will notify them or the caregiver if there is a change in the seniors’ activity levels, such as if they are entering the house or leaving at unusual times, or if they are not getting out of bed for a number of days. The app can also be used to monitor the security, temperature and light in the home where the seniors reside.
The above-mentioned article is part of the efforts of Senior Care Center to educate seniors and their loved ones on how to enhance the care provided to seniors. Those who are interested in these may also want to take a look at the releases issued by Senior Care Center on their Press Advantage media room.
Fourth on the list of apps and devices is MedMinder. This is a sophisticated pill dispenser that reminds the seniors or their caregiver about the appropriate times for taking medicine. This is obviously important because the elderly can be forgetful, especially those who have Alzheimer’s or dementia. Also, with so many kinds of pills to take at different times of the day, it could really be difficult to remember when to take each pill. There are four models and all are big enough to be filled with the medications that are required for up to several weeks at a time.
Another reminder tool for seniors is Reminder Rosie, which is a sophisticated alarm clock that can be customized using voice-activated technology. The loved one can record his or her voice to provide gentle and kind reminders for certain times of the day. The benefit is that the seniors get to hear the voice of their loved one and be comforted by it.
Senior Care Center advisors are familiar with assisted living facilities in a number of popular cities, such as Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Houston, Philadelphia, Dallas, Atlanta, Boston, Miami, San Jose, Seattle, Phoenix, Minneapolis, Las Vegas, San Diego, and Denver. These assisted living advisors are available to guide seniors and their families in finding the most appropriate assisted living facility for them.
