My 90 year old mom has been in respite care for one week after falling and remaining in her bathtub several hours. Fortunately she only had a small cut on her elbow and plans to return to her home soon. Before she had always refused to use any alert jewelry, insisting that she would always carry her phone with her and wouldn’t need anything else. Her phone was out of reach after her fall. Now she has finally admitted that she just might need an alert system in case of another incident.
Does anyone have any tips on what fall-alert systems work best? Mom is adjusting to living alone after we placed my father in memory care a few months ago. She is in very good health and likes her independence but refuses to have anyone but me check in on her. I live close by but work long hours.
BTW, this forum has helped me tremendously the past few stormy months.
