Keeping an eye on mum.

5 out of 5 stars

Since I gave up work to look after mum who has Alzheimer's, I've found the constraints of 24 hour care a battle. I had to think twice before popping out to the corner shop to pick up a bottle of milk or spend hours in the back garden for fear of her wandering. When I popped next door one day to have a quick coffee with a neighbour only to return to find the house empty with my mum halfway up the town, I realised something had to change. It was a friend who kept a canary device to keep an eye on her dog while she was at work who recommended one. I bit the bullet and bought one from Amazon immediately. I positioned it on the living room table so that I could not only watch my mum watching TV in her usual spot, but also see through to the hallway and into the kitchen. The app was easy to download on my phone and I could set it to alert me if there was movement while I was away. For the first time in ages I felt I could go for a walk in the morning without worrying about not knowing what my mum was up to. As soon as my mum was up and about the motion detector would alert me and I could see exactly what she was up to. If she looked like she was about to leave the house for a wander I would head straight back in time to catch her before she'd got down the road. It also alerts me if mum has gone downstairs during the night-time as she sometimes doesn't gauge the time of day. It has given me such peace of mind and although I would still never veer too far away, has stopped me from feeling like a prisoner. The freedom is priceless. I would certainly recommend a canary home security camera for their home.
