For assisted living communities, their residents and their families, preventing falls is a daunting and difficult challenge.
1/2 of assisted living residents fall every single year. Less than half of them tell their healthcare provider.
Falls cause 2.2 million annual ER visits and are the leading cause of injury death for older adults.
Up to 40% of assisted living falls happen at night - when there is less staff on hand, and low resident visibility
That’s the bad news. The good news is the problem is preventable.
An ultra-thin bed sensor and lighting system are installed in mere minutes.
When a user gets out of bed, lights are automatically activated, illuminating pathways to nighttime destinations.
Return to bed safely and the lights automatically turn off. No buttons to push. Nothing to wear. It’s that simple.
Luna Lights is more than just a lighting solution. If the lights remain illuminated for an extended period of time, a notification is created and sent to caregivers. Lights remaining on for too long can be correlated to falls or other issues, so caregivers can use this information to be more proactive about care and ensure residents are safe at night.
Through cloud-based analytics technology, we’re able to track precisely how long and how often night-time trips are occurring. Insightful data is then delivered to caregivers or clinicians to help them recognize resident behavior changes that could signal underlying conditions.
With daily reports, there is no information lost between shifts of caregivers. Day staff knows exactly what happened with residents at night, and can use that information to ask more productive questions like, “Are you feeling OK, Mrs. Jones? It seems you haven’t been sleeping well.”
Caregiving is increasingly high-tech. Start-ups addressing the health of people 50-plus received $1.3 billion in funding by midyear 2015...
