Selfhelp’s remote sensor, telehealth and cognitive stimulation technologies are playing an important role in the care of patients in the early stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
Remote motion sensors in the homes of these seniors can be programmed to learn their daily routines and send automatic alerts to Senior Source staff members when patients stray from their normal activities. These alerts will trigger swift intervention by our registered nurses and social workers. Sensors will also send alerts when seniors have accidents at home or are engaging in out-of-the-ordinary or at-risk activities like staying in bed all day or forgetting to eat.
Our telehealth technologies support seniors in continuing to live independently, keeping them safer in their own homes. Teleheath devices collect biometric data daily via our clients’ phone lines, monitoring their vital signs, reminding them to take their medications and follow their health regimens.
Clients with Alzheimer’s disease can benefit from participating in Selfhelp Alzheimer’s Resource Program (SHARP). Dakim’s cognitive stimulation programs provide engaging and appealing activities designed to enhance memory, cognitive abilities and overall outlook. The SHARP program focuses on preserving and maximizing the healthy and positive aspects of each client’s personality and capabilities, enabling participants to remain alert, involved and connected.
