While it may seem like the technological revolution only favors the younger generations, the advent of smartphones, easy to use computers and the growth of tech-enabled healthcare services have significantly made like easy for seniors.
Studies show that about 80% seniors own a cell phone and 70% seniors frequently use the internet. All of this suggests the increase in recognition towards the value of technology. Seniors living out their golden years, caring for themselves within their own homes find the availability of services such as telemedicine as an excellent way to maintain a quality of life while being safe and healthy.
Medical Help a Phone Call Away
With smartphones and smart voice assisted speakers that allow voice as well as video chat, it is possible for seniors to easily connect with their caregivers. Since these devices can also be used with simple verbal commands, it is easy for them to contact telemedicine facilities to stay on top of their health game.
Relying on Connected Health Gadgets
Manufacturers are now making a range of Wi-Fi connected scales, blood-pressure monitors, and thermometers that allows you to sync data to your smartphone. This makes it easy for seniors to track their health while also easily sharing it with their healthcare service providers online. Gaining easy remote access to medical advice and opinions saves a lot of time through reduced house calls for practitioners who no longer need to be physically present and seniors who do not need to make the cumbersome journey to a healthcare facility.
