Independence and quality of life –in old age too with TeleAlarm
The demographic shift in Germany brings questions about the care of the elderly. For many, life in an assisted living facility in advanced age is increasingly out of the question. The decisive factors for the decision against assisted living are among other things that it means less independence and moving out of one’s familiar environment. Yet the issue of how to combine humane and respectful care with independence does not just concern the elderly. Those who have unexpectedly lost some of their mobility through accidents or other strokes of fate and are dependent on help must also deal with this issue. The TeleAlarm care-phones with their home emergency call button offer physically restricted people an opportunity to remain in their familiar environment and still retain their independence.
