My 84 year old mom always feels cold even when everyone else around her is comfortable. Now with the cold weather upon us & age she has the aide turn up the heat to over 80 degrees. (The thermostat in the room she spends her time in effects 3 other rooms, so the house feels like an oven in spots.) I was thinking about getting her an electric blanket for use while she sits in her recliner during the day. I was just wondering if there are any concerns? She has a 24/7 live in aide to make sure it is unplugged when not in use. Anyone use them for parents/patients? I was thinking of a large throw type.
