As our parents and loved ones age, we are often torn between keeping them safe and healthy, while affording them their independence, privacy and dignity. We live busy lives, raising families, carrying on professions and participating in our communities socially. Add to this the care and attention often needed by our aging loved ones. How can we do it all; how can we not? Read about these two options.

FountainView at College Road, Rockland’s premier retirement community, offers maintenance-free living, safety and security along with services and amenities. Join our Clubhouse for indoor swimming, aqua and fitness classes and a myriad of leisure-time activities and trips. The community features studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments located on a beautifully landscaped 10-acre campus. A synagogue on premise offers three minyanim and study sessions. Glatt Kosher restaurant-style dining is in the elegant, newly decorated dining room.

BeThere24 alert and monitoring systems provide 24/7 monitoring of your loved ones without the need for any wearables or intrusive cameras. The system consists of wireless sensors discreetly placed throughout the home. The system tracks routines and activities of the senior, intuitively scoring those activities on a scale from healthy to failing. The caregiver is only a click away using the BeThere24 consumer-friendly app from the comfort of knowing Mom or Dad is fine, or, God forbid, not. Emergencies are immediately reported using a variety of options, 24/7 monitoring, a facility’s own staff/reception or to the caregiver of record. The devices are small, in most cases not even recognizable, and nothing is required to be worn, pressed or pulled. BeThere24 offers consumer-friendly technology to assure families that everyone is safe, and it’s a smart system, so it learns the normal daily activity of the client, and when that activity deviates from the norm, it alerts you and caregivers or healthcare providers so they may deliver the best care possible. It’s the path to greater independence, improved care and peace of mind for you and your family.

BeThere24 has teamed up with Fountainview Premier Retirement Living community in Suffern, New York to provide these monitoring systems to its residents. We will be participating together with a number of families in the Teaneck community to sponsor a meet-and-greet gathering to be held on Wednesday, May 10, at 7 p.m. at the Novogroders’ residence, located at 752 Washburn St., Teaneck, NJ 07666. Light refreshments will be served.
