When you think of your loved one entering home health care or assisted home care, you likely think of their health. You may think of the nursing they require, medication management, and other aspects of their daily care plan. What you may not consider are the simple comforts that can make a huge difference during this time in their life. One of those options to consider is to install motorized window shades. If you have not heard of or considered motorized shades, here are some ways they may be ideal for your loved one in assisted home health care.
One of the leading motorized shade functions is the ability to connect the shades to your smartphone device. This allows you to raise or lower the shades without leaving your chair or bed. For a loved one that is bedridden, this is ideal. They can adjust the shades to their desired height. They can also raise or lower them when the sun is becoming too bright or the room is becoming too hot. This ability allows your loved one to maintain control of their comfort and their environment.
Timer Motorized Shades
Having a timer motorized shade gives you and your loved one several independent aspects. For example, if your loved one tends to nap or go to bed at a certain time, you can simply set the timer. At that time, the shades will move down to darken the room and offer privacy. You can also set the timer to raise the shades or use a smartphone connection to raise the shades when your loved one wakes up for the day. This allows them privacy and the ability to rest on a normal schedule without having to interrupt anyone or wait for assistance.
Voice Assistant Enabled Motorized Shades
There is a rise in the purchasing of voice assistant devices. These devices allow you to do everything from adding items to a grocery list to setting reminders. One of the additional things the voice assistant can do is raise or lower motorized shades. Your installation technician can set the motorized shades up so they connect with the voice assistant technology. From that point, it will only take your voice to operate them.
If you believe motorized shades may make life easier and more comfortable for your loved one during their home health stay, contact a window shades company, such as Gallery Window Fashions. They can give you a demonstration of the different styles and functional motorized shades they have in stock. They can also discuss with you other needs your loved one may have and show you additional shades that may help.
