Home Modifications are changes made to the structure of a home so one can continue to live safely and independently. They may involve the installation of hand rails, the removal of shower screens, or even the widening of doorways and the addition of stair climbers.
Respite care (also known as short-term care) is a form of support for the carer and care recipient. It gives the carer the opportunity to attend to everyday activities or go on holidays while ensuring the care recipients needs are supported. Respite care may be given informally by family, friends or neighbours, or by formal respite services. Respite care assists the carer to improve their wellbeing and continue caring for the care recipient for longer.
Home Monitoring is using remote patient monitoring technology enabling patients with severe chronic diseases or conditions to monitor their blood pressure and other health factors from the comfort of their homes and share this information electronically with their physicians, family members and other healthcare providers. Tracking the patients results on a regular basis, can place carers minds at ease when they are not in the direct company of their loved one.
