In-Home Chronic Disease Management for Independent Senior Care
As we age, so our healthcare needs change — and the ability to react quickly to these changes and implement a medical and wellness solution is essential for maintaining a high quality of life. Chronic disease management can help seniors living at home to achieve this and live healthier, more active and enjoyable lives. Here are some insights from our senior home healthcare services.
Remote patient monitoring for healthier, happier living
Through telemedicine service centers software and monitoring devices, healthcare teams are able to track your health data unobtrusively and quickly identify when a patient needs increased care. In addition to early detection of potentially serious health problems and reduced chance of hospitalization, these systems also help healthcare teams introduce lifestyle changes, counselling and therapies to help manage conditions from the start.
In addition to increasing the ability to recognize the onset of chronic diseases like diabetes, congestive heart failure, hypertension and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, these systems are also able to increase safety in the home by reducing the risk of falls. This is a significant step, as one in every three seniors fall in their home each year, often leading to hospitalization and a lengthy recovery. Among seniors who are suffering from chronic conditions reporting more falls that require medical intervention, it is vital that remote patient monitoring systems can assist with chronic disease management to reduce these incidents.
For patients concerned with rising medical costs, these systems are also a great choice because reduced doctor’s visits and hospitalizations directly impact on healthcare bills.
