As our population gets older, providing the types of devices (as listed below) to employees would create WIN-WIN situations for all involved — employees, employers, and the aging parents or loved ones. Doing so could:
- Reduce time away from work — i.e., less travel, less overnights, etc.
- Reduce stress and ease the employees’ minds — i.e., have the peace of mind that one’s parent(s) is (are) doing ok
- Allow some mobility around the apartment, home, or nursing home to see that everything is ok
- Allow for some limited conversations with employees and their parents if the parents needed something
