What is Innovative Monitoring?
Santa Monica Senior living communities that specialize in memory care are required to have some type of monitoring system to prevent the individual from wandering. This addresses a major safety concern with those needing memory care services.
A memory care community specializing in senior care should be monitoring the residents for restroom emergencies, exiting their rooms and all entrances/exits. If one of these monitoring systems, a contact needs to be made to the staff for immediate assistance. Independent living communities don’t offer these monitoring services since the resident is not in need of safety monitoring.
These systems may also offer individual health needs. Good care comes with the best help, if there is an issue, monitoring systems will alerts staff of any emergencies to preserve the safety of the resident providing families the peace-of-mind knowing their loved one is safe.

How Does The Vigil System call for help?
The Vigil System utilizes passive sensors to monitor the movement of individuals while in their apartments. It then gathers the information about each resident’s activities and alerts caregivers when these activities are outside of their normal or safe behavior patterns. The expert staff will also receive calls if there are any issues.
- BED EXIT SENSOR – A bed Exit Sensor can detect when a resident fails to return to bed within a safe time period. This allows caregivers to check for falls or assist frail residents who have left their bed and monitor individual health.
- INCONTINENCE SENSORS – Incontinence Sensors in the bed alert caregivers immediately when a resident has been incontinent. Should suffering incontinence occur at the same time every night, the Vigil software will record this, allowing staff to toilet the resident and hopefully eliminate the incontinence episodes with further review.
- MOTION SENSORS – Motion Sensors detect wandering behaviors and track patterns with a complete call history log to help with care planning.
