90% of elderly people want to grow old at home, and this is a major challenge, as homes are often no longer suitable for elderly people who are losing their independence.
The home EHPAD is undergoing a major transformation, and the organisation and coordination of everyone involved must be embodied in structures. Through a call for projects, Ladislas de Cours is trying to create a new position in the home care sector, known as the Autonomy Advisor.
“Telegrafik offers connected solutions for making the process of ageing comfortable, whether at home, in an old people’s home or in an EHPAD […]
Our job is to inform families or carers if something happens. It is an ethical company that makes an impact […] More globally, our shareholders are affected. This is what drives us every day.”
The EHPAD is undergoing a major transformation, it must reinvent itself in order to be adapted to new diseases and guarantee better care”, explains Ladislas de Cours, Operations Director South at SGMR Les Opalines. In particular, in order to respond to the need for groups of EHPADs to set up more and more services geared towards care at home.
Why home care supported by an EHPAD resource?
“83% of elderly people report that they feel more reassured. The loved ones gain peace of mind on a daily basis. […]
Mentalities are changing, the younger old people of today will be the old people of tomorrow, and they are people used to all the new technologies and thus more likely to demand this type of solution”.
“The Otono-me EDAO & EHPAD solution is based on a video monitoring device installed in residents’ rooms. It is the only solution validated by a Hospital Clinical Research Programme: […]
The device has allowed a 15% reduction in the incidence of serious falls and a 47.9% reduction in costs incurred”.
“This project is […] one of the most successful technology projects followed through in recent years. The solution was very well accepted by the patients who felt safe. The project demonstrated the reliability of the ‘end-to-end’ platform, from the processing of sensor data in the home to the remote assistance service .
The success of this clinical study means that a larger cohort can now be planned in the coming months.”
“The ageing of our population raises a […] challenge, […] namely that of old age, of dependence, a subject that makes us uncomfortable. Dependency is here to stay, and this new vulnerable age of life is taking hold”, said French President Emmanuel Macron in a speech to the Congress of the Mutualité Française in 2018.
