    Through medical advancements, more people can stay with their loved ones and receive care at home. Most people prefer to spend the latter part of their lives at home rather than inside long-term care facilities. Through technology like medical alarm systems, telehealth and equipment like chairlifts, caregiving will be much easier and much safer. There are still some people who are a fan of the traditional caregiving but I hope they will be more open in this technology revolution for higher quality care. Thank you for sharing this infographic about long-term care. It’s really helpful and sums up the future of long term care.
