How to assist seniors when you can’t spend time with them? Let technology help you with some caregiver apps for seniors.

Although there are many reliable nursing homes today, seniors still want to age in their homes where they have lived most of their lives. This can be risky if their kids or caregivers are not around, but with the help of technology, they can do it. Below are some seniors care apps which help assist seniors at home.

But the best thing you can start with is install the SimpliSafe Home Security System. This system is affordable, reliable and easy to set up. Not only can it help prevent crimes, but also alert for freezing temperatures, smoke, leaks and breaking glass. 

If you need a panic button, here comes GreatCall-an app-linked personal emergency device. It uses GPS with a gyroscope which allows you to track your seniors and you will receive an alert in case they are falling or in medical emergency.
