Is it necessary to have a home alert system if your parents have full-time care?
My parents are living at home and the family wants them to have as much support as possible. Up until the last year or so, my parents have had part-time care during the week and I'd check in on them on a regular basis otherwise. So they've had a Lifeline for 2 or 3 years and it's been well worth it when they were by themselves.
My sister and I are reviewing expenses to cut what is no longer necessary now. However, we don't want to eliminate anything that is truly enhancing their safety. That's why I thought I'd ask my fellow caregivers what they would do or how they've actually handled the same or a similar situation.
We have caregivers during the day and I stay with my parents every evening and overnight. They are never left alone. Thanks for any feedback on this !
