I.L.S.A. for Professionals
I.L.S.A. for Healthcare Professionals
||You are a doctor, nurse, social
worker, home health aide, or occupational, physical, or speech therapist
who provides in-home care to an elder. The Independent LifeStyle Assistant TM
monitoring system (I.L.S.A.) can help you better serve
your patients by monitoring their activities in your absence and making
their needs clearer. It could help you concentrate efforts where and when
they are most neededmaking it possible to stretch your resources
without compromising the quality of care.
I.L.S.A. will be customized to
the specific needs of the elder and any agreement between you to protect
the elder's safety AND privacy. Some features that would ease your workload
and help assure you of your elders' safety in their own homes, include:
- Remote monitoring of vital
signs and chronic disease measures such as glucose levels.
- Remotely monitor medication
use and eating, mobility, and toileting patterns.
- Remind you of appointments
and help keep a list of things to do for your elder.
- Help you keep in touch with
your elder, healthcare providers, community services, and support groups
through email and a shared website.
- Provide alerts when your
elder is in danger, has fallen, or is behaving in an unusual way (not
taking medication, wandering, not moving).
