My elderly mother(89) loves to garden and lives alone 400 miles from me. The gardening is what keeps her at her home by herself. Does anyone use for daily care calls and prescription reminders. They look like what I need. thanks

kandw101, can't help you with the question, just wanted to say that my mom lives alone and is annoyed because she can no longer rake her leaves. She gets short of breath and then gets scared, she is 96. We should all be so lucky to be as contented as they are being with at home and in the garden.

Many areas have there own check-up systems. One of ours is connected to a local hospital.

Check around. It may be that there is already a local agency doing exactly what you want.

My parents have the monitor pendant too, but there's is from their home security company, ADT. The operator listens to what's going on and calls for emergency services. It's worked perfectly each time Dad has fallen.

RE: Elderly care calls.

I have been looking after my now 94 year old mother for 8 years. I am 64 and my income is very low. I live quite a bit of time in Costa Rica working on a project there. Has anybody made use of the video networking technology to make care calls (my thought was to have a caregive accept the call or the video conference on behalf of my mother just so she can see me and I can see her on the screen..also I want to help her do range of motion exercises or read her an article for example..just be together online..
