  • Have Peace of Mind Knowing Your Elderly Loved Ones Are Safe

    A granddaughter caring for her elderly grandfather in his home.

    Many of us have aging parents or grandparents whom we are responsible for looking after, and among the many things that we have to consider when providing them with adequate care is their personal safety. Aside from various aging-in-place features that can be added to their home, what else can you do to ensure that they’ll stay safe? Below are some great product options to consider that will give you additional peace of mind regarding the safety of your elderly loved ones.

    1. Lockey M210DC Double-Sided Keyless Deadbolt Lock

    The two-sided keypad of the Lockey M210DC enables you to securely lock exterior doors from the inside as well. This can definitely come in handy for cases where you’re taking care of a senior who suffers from dementia or Alzheimer’s, as these types of diseases can put your loved one at an increased safety risk. Sadly, it is not uncommon to hear stories about elderly persons with dementia being found wandering down the street miles from their home, often confused as to how they got there. With the Lockey M210DC, you have an added layer of protection that will ensure a greater level of safety. Thankfully, you won’t have to worry about keeping up with the keys for this lock, because there are none! All you have to do is enter the code of your choice into the keypad, and the lock opens as needed. As with all mechanical locks, only one user code will be allowed, but you can establish different codes for the interior and exterior sides if you so choose.

    2. Foscam 720P HD Wireless IP Camera

    According to statistics published by the Centers for Disease Control, more than one out of four seniors (age 65 and older) fall each year, with 20% of those falls resulting in serious injuries such as a broken hip or concussion. At 80 years of age and older, more than half of all seniors fall each year. These harrowing statistics underscore the importance of being able to carefully monitor the elderly person(s) in your care, so that you can quickly respond to any emergencies that may arise. Using the Foscam 720P HD Wireless IP Camera, you can have an “eye in the sky” to keep tabs on your elderly loved one. The Foscam IP camera can stream HD-quality video and audio directly to your laptop, tablet or smartphone, and you can remotely pan, tilt and zoom to check up on the finer details of the surveillance area when needed. If you’re taking care of a senior who is particularly accident-prone, this camera can be an invaluable asset.

    3. BeHome247 Home Automation System

    Perhaps you’re looking after a senior who can’t do many things for themselves, and even smaller tasks such as turning off all the lights or locking the house up at night can be too demanding for them to take on. The BeHome247 Home Automation System offers you the ability to control many of the basic functional aspects of the home–e.g., lights, door locks, thermostats, etc.–with nothing more than a few mouse clicks or screen taps. Using the BeHome247 online interface, you can turn off all the lights at night, lock all of the keyless locks, and adjust the thermostat to a comfortable setting, all within a handful of seconds. And what’s more, you don’t even have to be home to do it! This type of convenience will save both you and your elderly loved one quite a bit of time and effort, and ensure a greater level of safety for them as well.

    Taking care of an elderly loved one is a major responsibility, so any help you can get to ensure their safety and well-being will go a long way. Using the above home automation products will not only help you navigate your daily duties, but it will also offer you greater peace of mind.
