My mom has a Lifeline alert necklace that signals the company when she has a fall. They are instructed to call me before automatically sending EMS. Many times, I have been able to run over and help her myself. There was a false alarm 15 months ago and another one this weekend. At this latest one, I was out of reach so they sent EMS. She is very angry over the intrusion and now refuses to wear her necklace. My siblings and I have all appealed to her as far as her safety, our peace of mind, etc. I wondered about warning her that I will call her every couple of hours all day to verify that she is okay. That or put her in a facility. She really is still okay living on her own (in my neighborhood) except for the fall risk. She is 89 and showing some early dementia. She suffers from depression and has gotten more and more irrational. She takes her frustrations out on me as well. I should mention that I found out we could put a second unit in her house to increase the likelihood that she will hear the company checking on her. The first (centrally located) unit is loud enough, but she can't hear it from her bedroom with the tv blaring. I am wondering if anyone has any other ideas.
