I asked this question on the forum but probably didn't post it in the right spot. My dad is 76 and mentally sound but is physically crippled. He can get around ok but slowly which he is ok with. I have found a monitoring system that only costs about 100 bucks a month. He would not have to do anything but it lets me know if he is having trouble or is inactive. He lives about 2 hours away. I was thinking this would be a good first step to helping him and helping me with "keeping a hand" on him without intruding on him.
Does anyone have any experience with this type of device?
