Sensors
I just want to comment about the fact that sensors have really helped the home care workers so much. I know a few home health care centers that do part time service for the patient. These are usually available if the patient is able bodied and can perform almost everything with little or no problem. The sensors or the little necklaces that can alert when there is a problem can really save those peoples' lives. When you get that old falling down is like falling off a building. You just aren't going to recover very well and you may not be able to get up like you could when you are younger.

Technology and home care
It is amazing to see how technology is improving and advancing in every industry. I never would have considered installing censors around for home health care use. It is a fantastic idea though that could help care takers know if something has happened in the home.
