They live in the apartment downstairs (LR, BR, BA), and sometimes fall at night. Both mother and father-in-law are mobile, but need assistance walking. My FIL's mobility issues are from sitting in a nursing home where they didn't care if he got up to walk or not and now he is unsteady on his feet. In the NH he was on an alert system for any time he tried to get out of bed due to falls, but most of the time he ended up walking to the bathroom anyway because of the response time. He either wet himself or the bed in the middle of the night. Outside of sleeping down there with them, what would be the best system to have in our house in case this happens so we can stay upstairs and sleep in our bed? There is one bedroom downstairs, and it's the one they sleep in. I was possibly thinking about a walkie-talkie type device where they can ask for help to potty from us, and in short of putting a baby monitor downstairs (I would rather not hear their nightly conversations but will if it's necessary), what other type of device would make communication in the middle of the night easier, or alert us in case one of them falls and/or needs assistance? We are going to get a medical alert system, too. We have moved furniture so there is nothing in the way of them getting out of bed, they have rails on the bed to hold onto when they get up. My father in law doesn't like to wear Depends, and they seem to leak, anyway, and he usually ends up taking them off. Just looking to find out what other caregivers do that have multi-level homes.
