Advanced Home Care Technology in Chicagoland
At Freedom Home Care and Medical Staffing, we use the latest state-of-the-art systems and technology to assist caregivers, allowing us to be proactive and confident that we are providing each client with the proper care in a timely manner. Our top priority is keeping your loved ones safe. To do that, we use some of the most advanced technology in health care available today.
What kinds of home care technology are available and how can you utilize them?
- GPS Tracking Devices: GPS tracking devices are one of our favorite tools to help keep loved ones suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s disease safe. There are a variety of devices we recommend, but you’ll find our top five here. (http://www.freedomhomecare.net/top-5-gps-tracking-devices-for-loved-ones-living-with-dementia) They’re inexpensive, efficient, small, and most can be used with any smartphone or tablet to track the wearer.
- Smartphone Apps: This seems like an obvious suggestion, but there are actually tons of apps you can use to log food, keep track of medications and dosing, log and manage blood sugar levels, manage dietary restrictions and more. Our caregivers are happy to help point you in the right direction.
- State-of-the-Art Motion Detectors: Motion detectors and bed sensors can be installed to help keep loved ones with dementia and Alzheimer’s safe and prevent them from wandering. They can also be used to monitor important medical information: bed sensors can detect movement and breathing patterns, alerting you to potential heart problems if the person is short of breath; if a senior is up more in the night, they can even indicate the onset of a urinary tract infection.
What advanced technologies are available directly through Freedom Home Care and Medical Staffing?
Our Client Wellness Tracking System (FreedomCWTS) is the piece of health care technology we’re most proud of. The system incorporates computer tablet technology and customized software to allow caregivers to check in, make notes, and send important updates in real time about the health and wellbeing of each client.
FreedomCWTS gives caregivers 24/7 access to the client’s schedule, medication list, care plan, caregiver profile, and office shared documents. Caregivers, families, hospitals and senior living facilities can even access secure messaging with the FHC office staff at any time. The FreedomCWTS system is also set to send alerts for falls, weight loss, change in appetite, change in insulin/oxygen levels, and blood pressure readings. When an alert is sent out, the Freedom Home Care and Medical Staffing team is notified and can follow up immediately.
The FreedomCWTS system has been proven to prevent hospitalizations. During a 6-month introductory period, FHC tracked hospital stays and found that the FreedomCWTS system prevented 93% of clients from returning to a hospital within 30 days of discharge.
We’re confident in saying that Freedom Home Care and Medical Staffing’s knowledge and access to advanced home care technology makes us the best choice in home care Chicago providers. Systems like FreedomCWTS help keep your loved ones safe and ensure top-quality care.
