My sister and I are looking for options to maintain my mother living in her home without needing to get worried excessively concerning her being on her own. My brother and I usually are about sixty minutes away from Mom’s house. Mom is in fairly very good health currently yet getting older. My dad has passed and Mom is residing alone and wishes to continue being in her house of 36 years which we can acknowledge. We looked at medical alert buttons but they seem ancient with all of the brand new technology these days. Is any one making use of the Alarm.com Wellness system or at the very least have any advice? It seems to be fairly very affordable and could work keeping a watch over our mother who absolutely wouldn’t don an emergency button!
There are many new options available that place sensors in the house and detect falls, etc. There are also emerging AI solutions that leverage Alexa for example.
