Life Changing Apps for Seniors Receiving Home Care Services

Senior Home Care, Medical Alert SystemsAt Best Home Care, our home care professionals help seniors find the ideal homecare services for their unique needs every day. But we know that finding comfort and peace of mind goes beyond just home nursing, personal care assistants, and home health care. New advances in technology have created many options for fun and practical smartphone apps that can make life easier for seniors and their home caregivers.

If you are providing home care services for seniors, be sure to check out some of these apps:

 

  1. Pillboxie: This app reminds its user to take medications at the correct time throughout the day. Not only can this app help seniors manage their meds, it helps homecare assistants know which meds have been taken and when.
