Smart Home technologies can play an important role in creating more functional living spaces for people with age related conditions. Working with your occupational therapist, health consultant or architect, we can help you to take advantage of smart home innovations to achieve a more supportive living environment in the home.
These technologies are helping people live longer in their homes more independently in the later years of their life allowing more choice in where they wish to live.
For clients with acute disabilities, smart home technologies can be explored as an add on benefit to any medically designed aids they may have been issued to create more complete and convenient day to day living environments that provide more independence.
Wireless touchscreen control can consolidate the user experience of all the services in a room such as heating and cooling, intercom, lighting, blinds, motorised doors, TV, music and radio. For a person with mobility restrictions, they still can have easy control of the space from their armchair, wheelchair or bed.
Security and access control systems can monitor doors alerting carers if someone has left the home when it is not safe to do so or monitor the occupancy patterns of rooms to identify if someone has potentially been bedridden.
Smart Home technologies can also be a complementary solution to support external care givers both while assisting on the property and remotely when away, even on their smart phone.
For people building their last home, smart home technologies can be designed and implemented creating more opportunities to adapt and personalise the home services for different stages of life giving you more long term choice.
The ability of fall detection sensors to relay an event to families and carers provides greater safety and assurance. Sensor technology can also be implemented to monitor abnormal patterns of living, for example alerting carers if a person has not moved from bed after a particular time in the morning. Bedside call assistance devices can provide one touch alerts to carers via automated phone dialling or SMS.
These are just some of the amazing and life-change assisted living technologies which GreenStar specialises in.
Not only can such assisted living technologies prevent an individual from having to relocate to an expensive external care facility, they also make effective use of personal carers, by keeping them informed remotely and potentially reducing difficult-to-access support time from carers.
With organisations such as The Summer Foundation pushing for the inclusion of disability-friendly technology in new housing projects, assisted living technology is becoming more common, and for good reason. With new funding options through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Smart Home technologies can create new possibilities and choice for people living with disabilities or age-related conditions.
Such technology not only provides a better standard of living for the elderly, it also reduces the number of younger people living with severe disabilities from having to relocate to nursing homes, which are traditionally designed for the elderly.
