How InteliLiving helped me to detect a fall of my grandmother
I checked the InteliLiving app in the morning and could see my Nan, Lois had commenced her day and I was due to take her out for lunch later that day.
I decided I wanted to go over earlier with my daughter for brunch so decided to ring Lois to set this up however she did not answer and I thought she may have gone out for a coffee with her friends.
I then checked the InteliLiving app again and could tell there had been no movement for a long period of time and became concerned so I drove straight over to find her laying in the bedroom post a fall. She was very relieved naturally to have me come and find her which would been much longer had I not had the InteliLiving app.
Thanks to InteliLiving Susan is worrying less about her mother
Susan lives in Toodyay and her mother Nella lives alone in Mirrabooka.
Nella has been feeling unsteady and her daughter Susan worries being so far away means her mother won’t have a way to get help if something happens.
One morning Susan couldn’t reach her mother by phone and worried about her safety. To check on her mum, Susan took the day off work and drove 2 hours to Mirrabooka. On the drive, all Susan could think about was if her mum was hurt or injured and trying to call for help.
When Susan was close to Nella’s house, she got a call from her mum. She was fine and returning the many missed calls. After installing InteliLiving, Susan has a weight off her shoulders knowing that InteliLiving is always there letting her know that things are OK, and will alert her if she needs to take action. Meanwhile Nella is happier that Susan doesn’t need to worry unnecessarily, and feels safer in her own home with InteliLiving looking out for her.
How InteliCare is bringing peace of mind to this WA care organisation
SwanCare is a fully integrated care organisation providing a number of services for older Australians at our large 15 hectare site in Bentley, WA. The InteliCare platform seemed like an ideal system for us to test out for monitoring the in-home activity of our residents and in particular raise alerts when regular behaviour patterns change, potentially indicating an issue such as sickness or a fall.
Our staff were confident with the information they received from the system, and felt that they had a good idea on the activity level of each resident and were able to assist with any issues that came up. One of the key features of the system is to identify when a resident has fallen and provide assistance quicker.
We’ve also had a great feedback from family members monitoring the activity from their own mobile phones as well – they felt that they had a better idea on the health and safety of their loved one, and had better piece of mind over their care.
We find that for true peace of mind monitoring, the InteliCare system sits up the top – with a large number of optional sensors for behaviour monitoring, backed with great local support and willingness to adapt the system, we are confident in offering the system to our residents to provide great in-depth monitoring and quickly raising alerts to any potential issues.
