Special protection for those at risk of wandering
As an added measure of protection, Comfort Keepers® offers bedside pressure mats and motion detectors. These devices help increase the safety level for seniors, and can provide family members with a sense of security.
When pressure is applied, the wireless bedside pressure mats (also known as bed alarms) trigger an alarm in the home and send an emergency notification to the SafetyChoice® Centralized Monitoring Station responders. The mats can be placed bedside or in other critical areas of the home and are ideal for monitoring the safety of people who are at risk of falling or wandering due to dementia.
Installed in a central area of the house, our infrared motion detectors signal the SafetyChoice® Centralized Monitoring Station when activated and tripped. The station will call the residence to verify that an intruder did not activate the alarm and, if necessary, call designated responders. When used to monitor the movement of loved ones who may wander, the system can send an alarm to the caregiver’s computer. If the alarm system is not reset, SafetyChoice® Centralized Monitoring Station personnel will follow instructions established by the client or caregiver. The motion detector can be turned off during the day.
These added security features integrate with a selection of in-home Personal Emergency Response Systems offered by Comfort Keepers®.
Comfort Keepers® will assess your safety needs and recommend the right product. Comfort Keepers will visit the home, work with the family to determine the specific needs, and demonstrate how these care products help seniors stay safe while maintaining independence in the home.
