Your home is more than just a place to sleep—it’s where you create memories and build connections. Whether you’re laughing with family or chatting with neighbors, these moments make our houses feel like home.

For many of us, staying in our familiar surroundings and maintaining our independence as we age is important. So, we put together a few practical tech tips to improve your safety and well-being at home:


Consider Your Options

Personal health technology has advanced in recent years, providing tailored options for different lifestyles and living situations. It’s a good idea to talk to your doctor about your health concerns and get recommendations for safety technology that suits your needs.


Look into Medical Alert Systems

These systems offer features like GPS tracking and automatic fall detection to give you peace of mind during emergencies. Choose a system that fits your needs and do a practice run with a trusted person to ensure you know how to use it.

Before making a decision, consult with your doctor to address any potential risks and make sure the system meets your needs.


Improve Home Security

Enhance your sense of safety by investing in security systems with features like doorbell cameras and smoke/fire detection. Receive mobile notifications and communicate with visitors through the doorbell camera for added security.


Use Monitors and Sensors

Modern technology provides solutions for monitoring movement and detecting falls to reduce accidents and provide quick assistance when necessary. Look into reputable companies that offer these solutions.

It’s important to be aware of factors that contribute to falling and discuss them with your healthcare provider. Stay informed and stay safe.


Try Health Tracking Devices

Stay on top of your health goals with tracking devices that monitor heart rate, blood pressure, and sleep patterns. Consult with your doctor to find the right device for you.

These devices can provide real-time updates on your health status and help you manage your health effectively, such as heart rate, blood pressure readings, sleep patterns, and more.

These devices typically fall under four categories.

  1. Fitness trackers: Track heart rate, blood pressure, daily activity, sleep cycles, and many other features.
  2. Thermometers: Body temperature can tell you and your doctor a lot about your health.
  3. Medical Alert Systems: As mentioned earlier, these devices can track and alert you or emergency personnel if there is a fall.
  4. Heart Rate Monitors: Your active and resting heart rate can provide a wealth of information with regard to your overall health.
