If you have an aging loved one, you probably have thought a lot about all of the options that can help them stay in their home longer and more safely, such as home health aides or having a family member move in to help manage daily tasks. In some cases, though, these options are just not available or affordable. With options limited, some who might otherwise be able to live at home longer go to assisted living much earlier than anticipated. Others, without help or resources might stay home alone doing tasks that are increasingly difficult as well as increasingly dangerous for them to accomplish.
Home automation technologies are now making it possible for more aging adults to live at home alone longer using Ambient Assisted Living techniques and technologies. If you are not familiar with Ambient Assisted Living Systems or AALS, let us explain. Ambient Assisted Living Systems is a collection of techniques and technologies that extend independent living while enhancing care and quality of life. Traditionally, these techniques were used in hospitals and nursing homes and used to encourage as much self-care as possible. Now, AALS has evolved right along with the evolution of home automation and home security technologies. These technologies are used as an extension of care which provides additional support so individuals can live in their homes longer, and in some cases indefinitely.
When used for Ambient Assisted Living applications, home security and home automation technologies provide additional assistance and oversight that allows individuals to live independently longer. Here are some of the ways that smart home technology makes Ambient Assisted Living possible.
Smart home technologies allow seniors to live in their home longer, providing support without robbing independence or dignity. If you need more information about smart home technologies, call JM resources today.
