Selfhelp works with leading producers of emerging technologies to improve the quality of care we provide for our clients. We are innovators in the use of sensor, telehealth, brain fitness and medical alert technologies, implementing them to make the aging experience better for seniors.
GE Healthcare’s QuietCare wireless motion sensor technology is used in our client’s homes to monitor their daily activities, providing security for our clients and peace of mind for their families and caregivers. Seniors in our housing and NORC programs are protected and empowered by remote sensors as well. An additional level of support is provided by Rescue Alert’s Personal Emergency Response System and call center service.
Selfhelp clients who are homebound can benefit enormously from our use of video conferencing technology. We’re working with major technology vendors to create virtual Senior Center programs, so that every senior, regardless of physical or cognitive disability can engage in computer based socializing and community activities from the comfort of home.
Dakim’s Brain Fitness systems are offered at five locations in our housing complexes, Senior Centers and Selfhelp’s Alzheimer’s Resource Program (SHARP). These advanced computer programs engage seniors in cognitive stimulation and learning activities that enhance memory, mental agility and overall well being.
Selfhelp’s telehealth technologies support our clients in their desire to live independently by providing timely health information to Selfhelp’s nursing staff, so we can deliver more effective care and targeted preventive intervention. Advanced Monitored Caregivers, Inc. provides telehealth disease management systems for our Home Care and Senior Source clients.
Our technology partnerships are part of Selfhelp’s ongoing commitment to fostering independent living and addressing the changing needs of our clients.
