he world of elder care is never going to be the same again. With personal technology advancing at the rate it is, it is more likely than ever before for a senior citizen to be safe in their own homes. This doesn’t just include alarm systems or life line type call systems. New technology is moving forward making senior care easier than ever before.Consider the e Neighbor. This is a wireless sensor that can be attached underneath a bed. It records when your elderly loved one gets in and out of bed. If something unusual is noticed, it sends a message to authorities who then call the house. If there is no answer, emergency crews are summoned. Watch video in link below

Branch fell down while getting up in the middle of the night and was unable to get back up. She had left her life alert button elsewhere and had no way to call out for help. The eNeighbor noticed that she had been out of bed for an unusually long period of time in the middle of the night and it alerted someone to call her. When she didn’t answer their calls, they knew something was wrong. Emergency crews found her on the floor and brought her to the hospital. When the firefighters broke down her door, she had been on the floor for less than an hour.Many of these technological gadgets can be expensive and most are not covered by health insurances.
