Supporting Aging Parents

As children, you felt loved and taken care of by your parents, but as they age, you may find a role reversal taking place. You begin to shoulder some of that burden yourself, all while taking care of your own lives and perhaps also those of your own children. CreateAbility’s solutions alleviate much of the stress and frustrations and allow you to restore your relationship with your aging parent.

Caring for an aging parent is different for each family and CreateAbility’s Independence Keeper can be customized for your mom or dad, wherever they call home, to maintain their independence. Below are some other solutions made especially for aging parents and the sons and daughters caring for them.

Reducing Falls

Learning that your mom or dad has fallen can be extremely frightening because falls are the leading cause of fatal injury among older adults. And since one in four Americans 65 and over falls each year, reducing the risk of falls or even predicting a fall before it happens can be advantageous.

  • FallStop: assesses, predicts, and detects falls

Reducing Wandering

A confused parent suffering from a form of dementia (called sundowners) might attempt to wander away from their home or independent living facility thinking they have an appointment to keep or that they need to get to work. This puts their safety on the line and can be scary for everyone involved. CreateAbility’s solutions are designed with this in mind and employ distraction tactics to keep your parent safe or alert you if they need assistance.

Coordinating Care

Whether your parent requires professional caregivers or a team of family members all doing their part to keep them healthy and safe, keeping everyone informed of tasks is a job all to itself. CreateAbility has solutions that simplify organizing and communicating within the team of people that are caring for your mom or dad.

  • BEAM: a cloud-based portal for coordinating, tracking activities, and communicating within a personal or professional care team
  • MeMinder: individualized checklists for each member of the care team
  • Independence Keeper: helps older adults maintain their independence, wherever they call home

Monitoring Vital Signs

Vital signs can provide information to determine the overall well-being of your parent or act as the body’s warning signs that something is wrong. Accurately tracking them is essential to keep them on track to manage long-term diseases or for assessing daily health.

Taking Medication

Your aging parent most likely has a litany of daily medications for them to maintain the best possible health. But remembering to take the medications every day or taking them under the right conditions can be challenging. CreateAbility can provide innovative solutions to ensure that an aging parent is correctly taking their medication.

  • SmartMed: remote medication management
  • Independence Keeper: helps older adults maintain their independence, wherever they call home. The system capability to play music serves the dual purpose of music therapy and playing favorite music at specific times of day as a prompt to take their medication

Rural Seniors

Living far away from your aging parents can be nerve-wracking. You might have questions about their well-being running through your mind constantly. If your aging mom or dad lives in a rural area where their access to health care is limited, you can quell some of your worries and still stay involved in their healthcare with CreateAbility’s solutions.

  • Rural-Health-Mate: for rural older adults with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or congestive heart failure (CHF)
  • FallStop: assesses, predicts, and detects falls
  • Independence Keeper: helps older adults maintain their independence, wherever they call home

Incontinence

Thirty-seven million older adults who live independently have some type of incontinence. Discussion with your aging parent about the subject, while necessary, can be uncomfortable. CreateAbility’s solutions can help monitor normal toileting activities while maintaining their dignity.

  • Independence Keeper: helps older adults maintain their independence, wherever they call home
  • MEMBRAIN: minimal system to detect a resident’s activities of daily living (ADLs) relative to their typical baseline (coming soon)

Alzheimer’s

Improving the quality of life for your mom or dad with Alzheimer’s emerges out of different sources, from facilitating relationships to pet therapy, but ultimately their physical health needs to be taken care of to engage in other activities that make them happy and fulfilled. CreateAbility’s solutions track and monitor activities so that they can pursue other interests that they enjoy on a deeper level.

  • Independence Keeper: helps older adults maintain their independence, wherever they call home
  • MEMBRAIN: minimal system to detect a resident’s activities of daily living (ADLs) relative to their typical baseline (coming soon)
  • SmartMed: remote medication management

Parkinson’s

Parkinson’s disease is particularly draining, physically and mentally. The ups and downs of the disease can be just as debilitating as the disease itself, and while it carries its own distinctive problems, CreateAbility has solutions that can provide stability.

  • Independence Keeper: helps older adults maintain their independence, wherever they call home
  • MEMBRAIN: minimal system to detect a resident’s activities of daily living (ADLs) relative to their typical baseline (coming soon)
  • NGAGE: an exercise tracker for people with Parkinson’s (coming soon)
  • FallStop: assesses, predicts, and detects falls
