Helping our elderly live with dignity and familiarity can be difficult at times but technology and the world of hyper-connectedness are definitely making it easier. We hope that our vision will spur the creation of global communities of care not just to support our aging populations but to cater for all care needs.
My paternal grandmother in Melbourne celebrated her 95th birthday last February. Although still jovial and with her wicked sense of humor, she sadly has stage 3 cancer. 'Ma', as I call her in Teochew, is fortunate to have her 4 daughters who take turns caring for her in her final months. She is able to spend time at home amongst loved ones instead of a hospice or an aged care facility where she inevitably would have been alone most of the time and at best amongst strangers.
Aside from general companionship or a medical aid, choosing the right caregiver for the seniors sometimes means finding one that can provide care for certain conditions. Some of the more common conditions according to everydayhealth.com are:
- Macular degeneration
- Hearing loss
- Cognitive impairment
