I believe there needs to be some Aging In Place technology. My Virtual Companion TM is all wireless and easily retrofitted into any environment. This fits so well into the village because neighbors can be listed in a personal network of caregivers, family,freinds & NEIGHBORS. It also reminds about Medicine and other medical tasks like blood pressure, and weight. With a medical scheduler that reminds and re-reminds through audible & visual announcements, If the event still is not done an email message will be sent to My Circle of Care TM ( your support network )
EXAMPLE: If Elder Parent gets out of bed,lights automaticaly come on. An out of bed timer starts and the motion sensor in the bathroom alerts My Circle of Care IF there is a problem ( NO ACTIVITY ). Normaly when the elder gets back in bed the bed sensor turns off the lights and all is well. This also is great for Adult Children & Care Givers who can check the personal web site of the aging elder who chooses to Age in Place in the home that has served their family so well and now has an added custom technology tool, My Virtual Companion.
