“None of us wants to be reminded that dementia is random, relentless, and frighteningly common.” ~ Laurie Graham
Terry Pratchett wrote, “The baby boomers are getting older, and will stay older for longer. And they will run right into the dementia firing range. How will a society cope? Especially a society that can’t so readily rely on those stable family relationships that traditionally provided the backbone of care?” Not only the Dementia victims suffer – many of their extended family and friends, and especially those providing care for them, suffer too.
This article from The Times tells us that The World Health Organisation has warned that, within a generation, Dementia cases will triple around the world, and just caring for people with dementia will cost $2 trillion in ten years, which is double today’s figure, threatening to “overwhelm health and social services”.
The WHO is now urging governments to wake up to the threat posed by the incurable condition as the global population age since it estimates that today’s 50 million dementia sufferers will reach a staggering 152 million by 2050.
But how does that affect Caregivers, who are often the often the adult children, of Dementia sufferers now? How can IPS Safety Inc. help relieve the amount of stress the Caregivers suffer? How can we save them time and money, and increase their peace of mind, while at the same time improving the safety and quality of life of the Dementia sufferers?
Our two-way sound, night vision, plug-and-play cameras can be taken out of the box and set up in minutes by a Caregiver, and if they have questions, they can call our office and we will walk them through it. We even have a hidden camera to reveal elder abuse. And our tracking/fall device/SOS device is portable, waterproof, and has two-way sound, like a phone! Our vanguard product is our Trike Transporter: Seniors love this exception, safe, and affordable way to enjoy a bike ride and relive happy memories.
