My father came to live with a few years ago. He had brain damage from a cardiac arrest, and needed 24 hour monitoring. At first he was up a lot in the night and was at risk to wander dangerously. I tried a baby monitor but found my sleep was unnecessarily interrupted by his snoring and by ordinary background household sounds magnified through the monitor. The Notifex with a sensor at his door was a godsend. He had independence to move about in his room, but I would receive an alert if he left the room. Now that he is less mobile and more at risk of falling, we use the Notifex with a floor-pad next to the bed to alert me when he gets up. I don’t think we could provide care for my father at home without this system in place.
