Learn How A Security System Can Help You Keep Your Loved One With Alzheimer's Disease Safe


When you have a loved one who suffers from Alzheimer's come to live with you, adding a security system to your home can be a great way to ensure they are as safe as they can be at all times. The following guide walks you through a few reasons why you may want to consider installing a security system in your home:

Keep Your Loved One from Leaving the Home at Night

Alzheimer's disease can sometimes make it difficult for someone to have a regular sleep schedule. When someone who has Alzheimer's disease cannot sleep in the middle of the night, there is a chance that they may consider wandering outside of your home, which could lead to them getting lost or injured without you even knowing they are going. An alarm system can be set up to sound an alarm if the door is opened throughout the night, which will alert you so you can wake up and stop your loved one from leaving your home.

Help You or Your Loved One Get Emergency Care When Needed

If you, your loved one, or someone else in your home is injured, the security system control panel will have pictures on it that allow anyone to summon emergency departments, such as an ambulance, police, or firefighters to come and help when needed. People with Alzheimer's disease may not remember the numbers to dial on a phone, how to use a cellular phone, or where a phone is located during an emergency, so being able to push a picture of the emergency department they need during an emergency will better the chances of help arriving when it is needed the most.

Ensure Your Loved One Is Being Properly Cared for When You Are Away

If you work from home, there is a good chance you will have to hire a caregiver to take care of your loved one while you are at work. Many security systems now also have cameras that are installed throughout your home that can be streamed to your phone or computer. This allows you to be sure your loved one is being properly cared for by caregivers when you are away.

Keeping your loved one as safe as you can when they live in your home is important. The security system ensures you are doing everything in your power to keep your loved one from being lost, attacked, or injured.

Troubleshooting Your Business Phone System

About a year ago, we realized that there was a huge uptick in the number of customer complaints we were experiencing about our phone system. People didn't like the interface, and it was difficult to transfer incoming calls to the right department. To fix the issue, we started exploring the possibility of switching to a different phone provider. I was nervous about the transition, but the company we found was incredible to work with. This blog is all about different telephone systems that might work for your company, so that you don't have to settle for bad service or frequently dropped calls.
