My mom lives alone about 20 minutes from me in a two level home and is in her 70's. She is beginning to get very forgetful and "scatter-brained". I have brought up the topic of her living with me or one of my five sisters (yes...six daughters), but she doesn't want to be a bother to anyone-even though we tell her repeatedly that she will never be a bother. She enjoys her freedom and her independence. We are all pretty local, so we all check in on her quite a bit with calls and visits, but I was thinking that it might be a good idea to get a LifeAlert necklace or something similar. Does anyone have any experience with anything like this? The group of sisters is getting together after the holidays to discuss our options because I want to have a "plan" in case something bad should happen instead of waiting for an accident and THEN taking action. So, I would appreciate any feedback you all have in regards to these necklaces, buttons, or home systems.... Thanks!!
