Caring for the Elderly

‘Age UK’ estimates that there will be 14.5 million people with hearing loss by 2030.

The Royal National Institute for the Deaf (RNID) claim that around 2 million people in the U.K. have hearing aids,  however, only 1.4 million use them regularly

This number is expected to rise and by 2030 the number of people with hearing loss is expected to reach 14.5 million

The trem-bel wristband system is designed to be simple, smart and practical

 

 

Our research has shown that many elderly or disabled users are not willing or able to embrace complex levels of technology, so smartphones, for example, are alien to them. Living alone is not easy if you are physically fragile, profoundly deaf, and/or with poor eyesight. However many people do prefer to stay in their own homes for as long as possible, aided by loved ones or carers.

For family carers, who may juggle a full time job with looking out for a loved one, life can be filled with anxiety as they may find themselves responsible for two households. Shopping, making sure any medication is taken, enough food is available and much more.  With up to 70% of us expected to be carers for someone at some point in our lives, we have looked at how elderly retired live and what would help those that care for them  Like Lisa who speaks here, who cares for her mother.

 

We can upgrade technology – but we can’t upgrade people
