David E. Williams – Healthcare Innovations for Older Adults

As the population of older adults grows, so does the number of seniors living alone and in need of help that they can’t always get. Many people want to age in place, but don’t have a way to do so safely. This is especially true for individuals who live alone or with caregivers who are not available 24/7. It’s easy for things like health issues and accidents to go unnoticed until it’s too late. Using healthcare technology allows you to monitor your loved one from afar without being intrusive or overbearing. By using devices such as motion sensors, cameras, and smart home systems, you can keep an eye on them while still allowing them their independence. You’ll be able to see when something has gone wrong before it becomes a major issue – whether that means someone falls out of bed at night or doesn’t take their medicine during the day. With this kind of monitoring system in place, there will always be someone watching.——————– Timestamps: [00:00] Introduction to the channel[01:14] Introduction to David E.
