I want to install a granny cam in Mom’s semi private room. Cameras are now in use in dining area of her facility. 99 yo Mom has DX of Alzheimer’s, is fairly healthy but uses walker and would not be able to get up from a fall w/o assistance.
She has been in private Memory Care facility for 4 yrs. She eloped 3 times, has had issues with theft, caregivers refusing to keep her tv on religious station, housekeeping neglect etc. I have handled most issues.
Recently she sustained unexplained abrasions on both legs. The abrasions are in a strange “9 rung ladder” pattern on one leg with just horizontal wounds. Small abrasion on the other leg. I was only notified by a favorite caregiver, (who included photos), no notification to me from nurse or management -even though they were notified by caregiver.
At the point when I observed her wounds that day, there were some scabs but still some bleeding. This is not a recent wound. No explanation has been given.
I will report to state. Please share any experiences you have with different types of security monitoring. I think I will need to get permission from facility as well as roommate’s family. Thanks for any help!!
