Baby monitor for taking care of elderly people

Caring for our loved ones, whether children or adults, is a sensitive issue that requires a lot of patience and where all help is small. Fortunately, today we have new technologies, which provide us with useful tools to make the care of dependents or babies more bearable.
In recent decades, life expectancy has increased significantly, so many of us are in the situation of being caregivers, both to our children and to our elders.

Taking care of elderly people.

When it comes to being aware of the latter, one of the most common fears is that they may suffer falls or blows. To avoid this, and to be able to control them, even at night or when we are in another room, it is essential to have a surveillance system, such as the Availand Follow Baby baby monitor.

Thanks to their night vision, we can control if they get up at night, and be able to help them if they need to get up to go to the bathroom for example. Many of the falls suffered by older people occur precisely at night since many of them do not want to turn on the light, or bother someone else, and end up falling or injuring themselves. These injuries can range from the mildest -as some chafing- to the dreaded hip break. So, if we monitor their movements comfortably from another room or from our own bedroom, we can keep an eye on them while we perform other tasks or rest and avoid situations of this type.

In addition, thanks to the motion sensor that incorporates the Availand baby monitor, we can also listen to them before they get up and go to see if they need anything. This function is very useful if we are combining the surveillance of our elders with other activities in another room. The Availand baby monitor will activate with the movement, so we should not be worried all the time if a movement occurs. For example, if the elderly person tries to get up, the baby monitor will notify us immediately.

Another of the fundamental concerns at the time of taking care of our elders is that they take off their diapers, clothes, or even bedding. Thanks to Availand, we can monitor these activities, and go to put them again if they have been removed.

Tranquility for caregivers and elderly people

In the care of both babies and the elderly, it is essential to have adequate instruments that allow us to combine their care with our daily lives, and that we not feel that our entire day is reduced to taking care of the elderly person.

Thanks to video communication systems, such as the Availand Baby Monitor, we can, for example, prepare food in the kitchen, and the elderly person can comfortably stay in the living room watching television. We can also be reading a book quietly while the elderly person sleeps in their bed.

In this way, we will turn your care into a more pleasant activity, and mentally we will find ourselves more rested since we do not need to go to the room where they are at all times. This “freedom” helps them enjoy a certain independence, which also helps them to feel less “burdensome” for us and at the same time helps them to feel accompanied and cared for at all times.

In this sense, the bidirectional communicator of the Availand Baby Monitor is also particularly useful. Through this system, we can communicate with them and ask them if they need something without having to get up. This function also produces an effect of tranquility, the people in charge know that there is someone on the other side who listens to them, they do not have to raise their voices in case of needing something, and they rest better since they feel more accompanied.
