It’s that time of year; back to work for you and back to school for the family. Your schedule is getting busy now the summer holidays are over, and your concern for your elderly relative(s) is growing now you’re back at work. Perhaps you’ve been considering your care home options, however, we’re here to suggest an easier, more affordable option for you and your loved ones.
Saying “no” to a Care Home
Although we’d like to, it’s impossible to be available every minute of every day in case a relative needs your help, whilst living your own life.
Previously, the option of going into a care home would have been the obvious solution. But there are ways for elderly people to keep their independence still living at home, whilst safely supported by Careline365.
Careline365 – Putting Concerns at Ease
Our alarm technology is simple to use and is a reasonable price so that many can benefit from the independence it provides to older people. Your elderly relative will be able to contact help when in need without worrying about disturbing you at work or at night. All they need to do, is to press the red help button on their pendant. This device is worn around the wrist or neck.
The monitoring team will respond to the alarm to reassure your relative, before contacting the help needed appropriate to the situation. Commonly, the monitoring team will contact family, friends and/or neighbours – alongside the emergency services should they be required.
At Careline365 we recommend you also use a key safe to securely hold your front door key that can only be accessed by someone who has the correct access code. You won’t need to give out copies of your door key to many different people caring for you. Instead just give the correct code to anyone needing to come to help you.
