5 Helpful Gadgets that Keep the Elderly and the Aging Happy, Safe and Independent

August 27, 2013 Leave a comment

Do you have a parent or grandparent that would still like to live on their own that you worry about? 95% of people age 75 and older say that they want to stay in their own home indefinitely. This presents a potential problem for them as well as the family members who care about them. The possibility that they may fall with no one to help them up, that they may need assistance with various household chores and activities, and that they may even forget to take important medications is a very scary thought. Fortunately, there are various helpful gadgets that will make the lives of the elderly and aging much easier, happier, and most importantly safer.

1. Vacuum Cleaning Robot

When we’re younger, we don’t realize how much work and strength it actually takes to vacuum a house. The iRobot Roomba 630 Vacuum Cleaning Robot scours floors for dirt and dust with the push of a button to activate the robot. Also, if they drop food on the ground and cannot bend down to clean it up they can let the Roomba do it for them!

2. Sound Amplified Large Button Telephone

A Sound Amplified Large Button Telephone will reduce difficulty of making phone calls for people who are sight impaired. This can be extremely important and useful in the event of an emergency if reading glasses are not nearby.

3. Wireless Personal Emergency Response System

This system comes with a wearable pendant that can be pressed in the event of an emergency. In the event of a fall or an emergency, the person wearing the pendant can simply press the button and it will call an Emergency Monitoring Center, or a programmed contact of your choice. When an elderly person lives alone, there is nothing more dangerous than a slip or fall and a major health issue with no one around to help. With a Wireless Personal Emergency Response System, help can be contacted at the press of a button.

4. Doorbell Alert Strobe Light

People who are hearing impaired will not have to worry about the possibility of not hearing the doorbell with the Wireless Door Chime with Strobe Light Alert. This handy strobe light will make sure that the door does not go unanswered.

5. Monitoring System

If the person you are monitoring gives their permission, it is also a good idea to have a monitoring camera set up in that person’s house in the event that you cannot reach them and worry that they may be in trouble. With the INSTEON Wireless Security IP Camera with Pan, Tilt and Night Vision, you can check on your loved one from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection.

Pool Safety 101 – 7 Ways to Make Sure your Pool is Child Proof

August 23, 2013 Leave a comment

Pool safety is extremely important, especially when there are small children present. We’ve got a few ideas and solutions for parents and families who worry about the possibility of their children accidentally falling into the pool when no one is around. Here are a few safety precautions to consider:

1. Hot Tubs may be small, but they are still dangerous to unmonitored children. Regardless of the size of the pool or hot tub, they still present a risk when it comes to small children.

2. NEVER “step away” and leave children unmonitored in the water – even for 1 minute. Things can go wrong in a matter of seconds and it is important that a responsible adult be present at all times when children are in the pool.

3. Use devices that can detect if something (or someone) has fallen into the pool and will immediately notify you with a loud alarm like the AquaGuard Pool Alarm System or the Safety Turtle Base with Wrist Band.

4. The old “No running” rule still stands. Keeping the pool area mellow significantly reduces the risk of accidentally falling into the pool. Making sure things stay calm around the pool area avoids the risk of a child slipping on the wet ground and possible falling into the pool unintentionally or accidentally bumping another child into the pool.

5. Make sure your children know to only swim when a lifeguard or a responsible adult is watching.

6. Keep a locked, sturdy fence around the pool area so that children cannot wander over to the pool without the guidance of an adult. A Wireless Gate Alarm Transmitter works with the Safety Turtle Base Station and will sound if the gate that it is installed in gets opened and the Yardlock Keyless Wood Gate Combination Lock Kit will ensure that no one without the gate code can enter the pool area.

7. Check the PoolSafely.gov checklist to be sure that your pool area meets all of the CSPC safety guidelines.
