Hello all, my mom is 72 years old and she is suffering from chronic disease (BP, Diabetic, etc.) and at times she forgets to take the medication. She wanted to stay alone at her place as she is more comfortable there.
I recently came across a remote patient monitoring company that checks all the vitals, medicine intake, etc. Looks like they have nurses review the vitals and other information on a 24/7 basis and will only contact me, if there is an emergency. They also have fall detectors and monitor my mom's daily activity. They will also setup Doctor appointment, with my mom's doctor, if they see any abnormalities. This does not include any in-home care. If this works as advertised, this will be a godsend for me. The great thing is that, I can also login to the portal and review all her information as when I want.
Have you heard about a service like this? What should I look for and what is the going rate for this type of remote patient monitoring service. Their basic charge is around $85/month. Is this reasonable? From my point of view, this is great as this relieves me of taking care of her on an hourly basis and can attend to her, as and when she needs help. This way I can also keep my job.
I’d love to hear your feedback. Thanks.
