Elderly care is care for seniors at their home or in an institution. It comprises care for demented people, but also palliative care and help in their homes. For elderly it is important to function in an independent way. We divide elderly care in three areas: home care, nursing homes and assisted living. Foston Europe offers innovative, technologic systems that can be easily integrated into existing systems, in every area of elderly care.
The most common integrations in elderly care are:
- Nurse-call systems
- Wandering control
- Access control
- Fire alarms
- Positioning systems
- General building automation
Home Care is care for people who need help in their daily lives, but still are able to live on their own. The care they get is mostly personal care, nursing and support in daily tasks. For this type of healthcare, it is important that people who receive healthcare feel safe and independent at the same time. Foston offers helping aids for the home care sector. These aids can be used to ask for help and for nurses to monitor the patients from a distance and be at help when necessary as quick as possible.
In our target group assisted living, seniors live in their own house, but they can profit the help of nurses from the nursing home every time of the day. The elderly that appeal assisted living, often struggle with a physical or mental disability, which makes them incompetent to completely taking care of their own. In this target group, our products are specially custimized for nurses to feel safe at any time.
Residents of a nursing home often need temporary or long-term help and nursing that can’t be arranged in their own homes. Nurses who work at nursing homes are responsible for multiple residents. In nursing homes, it is important that nurses have a clear view of the information of the residents, but also the schedule of other nurses. Foston helps with this process by offering a dashboard managing system and alarm systems. Our aim in this part is to create a safer environment for not only the elderly, but also the nurses.
