Helping You To Stay in Your Home
By Deborah Kaylor, RN, BSN

Are you worried that mom is not taking her medicine? Or maybe your uncle has had a few falls and could benefit from the assistance of in-home technology. SeniorCare at Home can help.

We offer a variety of services to keep you or your loved one living independently at home for as long as possible. We start by learning about your needs. Then we develop a care management approach that provides the right types of support. Whether it's a caregiver that can help with meal preparation and personal hygiene or in-home technology such as a Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) or an automated medication dispenser, we offer a personal touch. Instead of a box with equipment and instructions arriving at your doorstep, we show up to install and explain the use of any in-home technology. And it's all part of a care plan that we customize for you.

For example, with one click of the button on your PERS pendant or wristwatch, you are connected with a SeniorCare at Home team member. Our PERS is more than an "emergency" button. It's a personal concierge service. Click the button whenever you need assistance. If you're not expecting visitors and someone is at the door, we can stay on the line to make sure everything is fine. If it's an icy day and you want us to stay on the line while you get your mail, we are one click away.

Or maybe your loved one is struggling to keep up with complex prescriptions. If so, our automated medication dispenser is an easy way to help ensure the right amount of medication is taken at the right time. The dispenser stores and allots medications. Like an alarm clock, it notifies you when it's time to take your medications. If a dose is missed, our call-center nurse phones to discuss why the dose was missed and stays on the line while the medication is taken.

For more information about caregiving and in-home technology options, call SeniorCare at Home, an affiliate of Presbyterian SeniorCare, at (412) 828-6686 or (724) 884-1300. Or visit www.SrCareatHome.org.
