Smart technologies are revolutionising care for those with dementia, allowing people with the condition to remain living independently, and with dignity, in their own homes.

Award winning aged care provider Feros Care is leading the way in using innovative technologies to improve independence and quality of life for people with dementia and providing support for carers.

Feros Care CEO Jennene Buckley said assistive technology helped reduce the risk of users being re-admitted to hospital or going into long term care.

“With no existing cure for dementia we must look towards technology to allow people with dementia to live independently in their homes for as long as possible,” she said.

“Technology is already available to help people with dementia be guided through their home, being prompted to take small actions that make them safer and alerting their carers or a response centre if they are in danger.

“Intelligent technologies are helping provide affordable, sensitive care, and enabling people with dementia to live healthier, more independent lives.

Feros Care’s growing range of LifeLink Telecare Smart Home technologies provides assistive products that support seniors and their carers by addressing specific needs, promoting independence, encouraging social interaction, memory support and health management.

The Feros Telecare solution includes a range of care and environmental sensors that can assist in managing risks associated with the health and home environment of a senior with dementia – with sensors automatically alerting a response centre, family or a carer, if an alarm is activated.
