Now more than ever, home safety is essential! The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines aging in place as… “the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level”. The comprehensive home safety assessments provided by a certified Senior Home Safety Specialist™ are essential to allowing older adults to remain in their homes by preventing injuries and maintaining independence. Every 11 seconds a senior is admitted to an emergency room due to a fall. This is NO time for a fall.
“I think we are in an environment where this service will be in even greater demand. My mother recently died in a nursing home six weeks ago. With all of the COVID-19 cases and deaths that have taken place in nursing homes it is now an important time to help keep our aging family members safe at home as long as possible.” – Doug R.

For the elderly, Health and Safety Monitoring is Essential!
Innovative PERS and Advanced Remote Patient Monitoring:
As you know, COVID-19 is pushing U.S. healthcare to adopt practices it should have integrated years ago, and telehealth is at the top of the list.
ADVANCED REMOTE PATIENT MONITORING is required to achieve the best outcomes. Age Safe America, is delivering the most complete set of resident and patient monitoring services available, along with providing liability reducing protocols for elder care organizations. During this period of rampant COVID-19 outbreak, urgency is required to manage and suppress the spread of the virus through continual monitoring and early identification of symptoms. In addition to infectious disease management, our solutions are demonstrating utilization and efficacy for chronic disease management, increased adherence, improved outcomes, and lower hospitalization at profound levels. Forward-thinking, responsible elder care operators are incorporating advanced monitoring in order to take every precaution to protect their customers, to reduce liabilities, and implement return to work health mentoring for employees.

- 24/7 monitoring and real-time engagement if new health conditions or decline of existing conditions are identified.
- 24/7 monitored medication and treatment reminders, responding in real time when non-adherence matters are identified, to improve adherence rates.
