My mother has dementia and is 88 years old. She is also stone deaf. I lost my father two years ago. My mother lives in the same bungalow and seems quite content. She has no friends really and doesn't miss them. The TV is her friend.
I would like her to have companionship but she doesn't see the need for it. As I said she likes her own company. What I worry about is falls. Her mobility is very good for her age and her reflexes are swift. I was wondering about installing spy cameras linked to the internet so that I and/or friends could keep an eye on her. I would also love to know what she gets up to during the day. She never tells me. I feel bad about spying on her as it feels like an invasion of her privacy. I wouldn't of course place a camera in the bathroom. Feedback would be greatly appreciated from anyone who has used this. Thanks.
