#HappyHealthyDays from Electronic Caregiver! We know firsthand how important health and safety are for you and your loved ones. We also know that issues surrounding longevity, safety, security, independence, health management, aging in place, and peace of mind are relevant for both caregivers and individuals.
Our elder population is growing rapidly. By 2030, one in five Americans, 72.7 million, will be aged 65 years or older. This number is projected to reach 83.7 million by 2050. With a rise in population comes the question: how can we ensure that those who are aging do so in a healthy and beneficial way?
The Value of Aging In Place
We support those who wish to maintain their independence by living at home with services and products for health management at home. While the research about aging in place is somewhat limited, we do know that with a growing older population, knowledge about the costs—and benefits—associated with staying at home during the golden years is vital to decision making.
Recent research suggests that aging in place saves money at the individual, state, and federal levels. Additionally, there are numerous social and emotional benefits when individuals are able to choose to be at home.
The Connection Between Independence and Longevity
We also know that several factors contribute to longevity, including:
- Physical activity
- Education level
- Better standard of living
However, many people often discount the ability to “do for oneself” as a part of living longer and living well.
One of the main concerns among seniors is losing independence. It can feel like a loss of control. While some may not be able to be as independent in terms of where they live because of physical or cognitive decline, it is important to help maintain as much independence as possible.
Remaining independent can help with staying connected to the community. These emotional connections play an important role in longevity. Studies show that there is a 70% reduction in cognitive decline in those who maintain social ties as compared to individuals with low social activity.
Peace of Mind with Remote Health Monitoring
Still, it can be hard to know if you or your loved one is safe and secure. That’s why health management at home plays a vital role in these connected
