 Live-In Care | Overcome Wandering Worries Pt. 2

Live-In Care |Using advanced cellular triangulation technology, the cellular network can provide a highly accurate location of the wearer for emergency officials, and it will provide continuous location updates to account for the wearer’s movement while emergency responders are en route. Innovative? In a word, yes. The company was co-founded by its CEO Jim Nalley, an eight-year veteran of the U.S. Army. As an officer in communications in air defense, Nalley spent five years at DSC/Alcatel USA, leading a large network build, design and service team.

EmSeeQ can dramatically reduce the gap between the initial report and the rescue, saving precious time and lives. And it works more reliably indoors and in areas where there may be interference, unlike GPS systems which must have a clear eye to the sky. The device is available in two models: a wristwatch-style with a buckle that can easily be removed and one with a secure clasp-style band that requires two hands for removal to prevent impaired individuals from taking it off themselves.

Increasing Care Facility Security

Despite these efforts, if circumstances demand that the patient be placed in a nursing home or long-term care facility, inquire about the facility’s security policy. Be sure that the facility you choose has both prevention and recovery measures in place, including adequate supervision, alarm systems, a resident database with vital statistics and current photo and a cooperative relationship with local authorities for activating search and rescue response quickly.

If the facility does not meet your requirements, consider placing an EmSeeQ device on the patient even while he or she is in the nursing home or long-term care facility. Inform the staff of the simple and easy procedure for activating the system. Increasingly, long-term care facilities are offering the EmSeeQ to residents as a value added service.

The EmSeeQ is surprisingly affordable. For about $25, or less than the monthly cost of a typical cell phone, the EmSeeQ service is a small price to pay for the peace of mind that comes from knowing your loved ones will be located quickly and safely in the event they wander from home or a care facility. –-Parent Giving
