My mother recently turned 71 years old, and she remains absolutely active as well as independent.
She has no trouble driving herself wherever she needs to go.
She mows as well as rakes her lawn, weeds the gardens as well as handles all of the household responsibilities, but despite her good health, I worry about her living alone, and i make sure to call her every afternoon as well as I usually stop in for a visit, however that isn’t enough. Last year, for Mother’s Day, I invested in a security system for her house, however the security system includes motion-activated lighting, surveillance cameras, door locks, glass breakage sensors, smoke detectors as well as an alarm, and whenever someone enters the house, it’s necessary to punch in the security code. If the wrong or no code is provided, the alarm sounds as well as my mother as well as I both get alerted. If the people I was with and I fail to provide the password, the local authorities are notified, for the first several weeks after the security system was set up, my mother tripped the alarm several times. It took her a while to get used to the codeâ€¦ Now that she’s usual with the operation of the security system, she truly enjoys it. She enjoys that a chime sounds whenever someone pulls into the driveway. She just enjoys watching the footage from the security cameras on her ipad. She’s started feeding the neighborhood stray cats, as well as she watched them eat from the dish. I appreciate that there’s a panic button. If there’s an emergency, she can just hit that red button to get help. The security system has given both my mother as well as I peace of mind.
