Markus is 42 and works as a caregiver in an assisted living home for dementia patients in Vienna. He loves his job and takes care of different seniors every day. Two weeks ago, the assisted living facility got a new resident with advanced Alzheimer’s dementia – Mr. G. had previously been cared for by his family and a mobile caregiver. Recently, however, the sick senior began to manifest severe states of confusion, which sometimes even degenerated into violence. His grandniece was injured while trying to wash him. Due to his condition, care in his own home was unfortunately no longer possible, which is why his family now had to hand over the care work to professional hands with a heavy heart.
As a long-time and dedicated dementia caregiver, Markus has cared for nursing home residents with similar symptoms. However, in the first week since Mr. G.’s arrival, a dramatic incident occurred. When it came time for Markus to help his new charge take his medication, Mr. G. panicked and grabbed a bread knife. Fortunately, Markus was able to fend off the attack and remained unharmed. However, he needed the support of his colleagues – and since he started using the SafeMotionsafety watch for lone workers, help is just a quick push of a button away. With the help of the watch, Markus was easily able to contact his colleagues, who quickly provided him with assistance. Die wertvolle SafeMotionSoftware ist jedoch nicht nur für die Alarmuhr, sondern ebenfalls für Notrufknöpfe, elektronische ID-Karten etc. verfügbar. Markus’ residence wants to offer its employees the best possible security while they are at work, so it uses the system in both smartwatch and ID card variants. Markus and his colleagues are happy about the innovative safety management and together with SafeMotionthey can take care of their home residents without worries.
