There’s no need for personal staff when curtains can be opened automatically, fridges can tell us what food they need, floors can begin heating themselves up at a set time. And all before your feet hit the ground in the morning!
The capabilities are becoming more and more endless, extending beyond comfort to necessity. It’s not so unlikely that sometime in the near future, your doctor will receive a text because the health monitor in your clothing notifies them that your blood pressure has been up for two days. Or maybe even electronically let your family doctor know you’ve had trouble sleeping so someone can come by to check in on you!
There are currently products available in flooring that can sense if someone has fallen or is just sitting on the floor.
These technological advancements can transform life for two generations - caregivers and caretakers.
There are many ways to navigate the joys and challenges that come with aging. Technology is allowing us to help keep our elders at home longer than ever before.
Sure, there is the potential for a learning curve while mastering these new uses of technology but if we work to keep our humor and patience, the results will pay off in no time. Practical design and pre-planning strategies make it easy to see how a home can be designed into a multi-generational, modern living space.
And don’t forget – if the goal is to simplify as much as possible, our lane homes allow seniors to downsize and stay on their own property. In the last 4 or 5 years, this has become a very popular option for those wanting to stay in the same home but really minimize what’s required.
So, whether it’s technological support you’re looking for or another way to spend your golden years in your life-long, home, we can help.
