The number of senior citizens worldwide is increasing at an astounding rate. Over the next 20 years, Canada and the US alone expect to see an increase in senior citizens (people aged over 65 years) by 68% and 70%, respectively. While this increase reflects improvements in healthcare, an increase in the need for senior care is also expected. According to the AHRQ, senior citizens had the highest inpatient stays every year.
As we age, our bodies experience wear and tear, leading to certain conditions that require treatment. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that almost 85% of citizens over 65 years of age have at least one chronic health condition, and over 60% have at least two chronic illnesses. For these chronic conditions, like hypertension and Alzheimer’s Disease, the elderly population often needs constant monitoring, e.g., blood pressure monitoring, heart rate monitoring, etc. Due to these debilitating conditions, elderly citizens often experience loneliness, depression, wandering, and even falls.
Moreover, the difficulty that the elderly population face during hospital visits is quite discouraging. Many patients are not compliant with their medications, and many need regular assistance in following prescriptions. Statistics show that almost 18 million or half of the senior citizens expressed the need for some assistance with their daily activities, and this number is increasing. These facts suggest that the burden on families and the healthcare system is probably more significant than ever.
With that in mind, imagine having a healthcare provider next to you all day long. Typically, home assistance is provided by some family member, relative, or nurse, but this is being revolutionized by artificial intelligence (AI). The AI industry, collaborating with healthcare providers, has designed various software, apps, and devices that provide remote senior care. Luckily, the elderly population can now access remote patient monitoring all-day long.
We at Sensights.AI offer a variety of solutions for remote senior care. You or your loved ones will be able to access high-quality, nurse or PSW-supervised services 24-hours.
Our teams have designed apps and devices that steward the elderly without getting burdened or taking breaks. Insights blood pressure monitor and heart rate monitor are some devices that aid in constant remote patient monitoring or the vitals of seniors can be monitored with the simple use of camera. Moreover, the elderly who experience problems with their memory (Alzheimer’s disease) can be reminded about their medications and alert them if they are wandering.
Lastly, our emergency alert solutions, like the fall detecting device, are an essential tool for every senior citizen. The fall detecting device, for instance, immediately detects if a person falls and notifies the nearby rescue teams or healthcare providers. A timely call to the care system can be life-saving for your loved ones.
Today, the goal of the healthcare system is to provide high-quality services to everyone in need. It has become challenging to achieve this target with a limited number of healthcare providers and a growing number of senior citizens. However, incorporating AI in the circle of care has led to significant progress towards attaining this goal.
