Breaking Down Barriers: Revolutionizing Mobility Monitoring in Older Adults

Ensuring the safety and well-being of older adults is a top priority for caregivers and community administrators. One of the most significant challenges is effectively monitoring mobility without infringing on privacy or compromising dignity. Traditional methods often involve intrusive cameras or wearable devices, leading to residents’ resistance and concerns about privacy.

There are various challenges that senior living settings face when it comes to monitoring resident mobility.

  • Privacy Concerns: Many residents are uncomfortable with constant surveillance by cameras or intrusive wearable devices, which can infringe on their privacy and compromise their dignity.
  • Resistance from Residents: Residents often resist using cameras or wearables, making implementing effective monitoring solutions challenging.
  • Limited Coverage: Existing monitoring methods may have limitations in terms of coverage, especially in larger communities where it’s impractical to install cameras outside of rooms or ensure that residents always use wearable devices.
  • Complexity: Some monitoring systems can be complex to set up and maintain, requiring significant time, money, and resources.
