3 Benefits of the Neposmart Indoor Security Camera for Your Elderly Loved Ones

 

My paternal grandfather has moderate to severe dementia, and my maternal grandmother has slight dementia. Since neither lives nearby, my family isn’t able to see them very often. During each phone call and visit, we notice the signs: the repitition of stories, the confused pause in conversation, and especially when they forget who you are.

There’s not a lot you can do regarding their dementia, but there is something you can do to monitor them during this difficult time. Whether they live in a different city, state, or country, you can install a Neposmart Indoor Security Camera in their family room, kitchen, or any area that they use frequently. How would this help?

 

  1. Monitor the camera from your smart phone, tablet, or iPad. Check on them throughout the day, or every couple days.
  2. Check the footage from earlier that day if you don’t see them on the camera.
  3. Use the two-way audio to call out to them. Have you ever heard of the saying “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up?” Simply call out to them using the audio feature and they can respond if they are nearby and can’t move.

 

In the rare event that something’s happened and you can’t reach them on the phone, you can check the security camera from your smart phone, tablet, or iPad and find a way to reach them.

Illinois was next to follow suit. California, Virginia, and Maryland have joined since. A few more states are in discussion. Each bill looks a little different with some having some parameters and others having no restrictions.
