Mom has very early Alzheimer’s but her physician cleared her to continue to live independently. She handles her life very well except for one area: she turns her house alarm on when she leaves but takes longer and longer to remember the code to turn it off when she comes home. The alarm goes off frequently and the disturbance makes the residents and condo association extremely unhappy. Any suggestions?
Many alarm companies offer a remote control similar to those for cars. One or two clicks on the control and the alarm sets or disengages. This may help the problem unless mom has progressed past the “very early” stages. Be sure to watch her closely to be certain she isn’t at risk as she continues to live independently.
