Q: What do caregivers think about wearable sensors?

Wearable technology has been developed to alert caregivers when their patient or loved one gets out of bed (“wanders”), if they fall, or if their behavior is out of the ordinary. This means that a caregiver can leave the room, run an errand, or get some rest without worrying that their charge is in danger. This peace of mind is so important to ease caregiver stress.
