My mother-in-law is 78, lives on her own in the boonies, and is quite frail. We would like to get her some kind of device that would alert someone if she were to fall or have some other medical issue. My BIL and SIL only live a mile away so theoretically, they could respond fairly quickly to an alert but he farms and often has spotty cellular reception. My SIL works about 10 miles away, so during the day, she wouldn’t be much help. My wife and I are considerably farther away than that.
My MIL has a landline, internet, an iPad, and a iPhone. My wife suggested an Apple Watch but my MIL’s arthritis is so bad, I don’t think she’d be able to operate it.
Does anyone have any recommendations or experience with devices to assist the elderly in case of falls etc? A subscription service would be fine as long as it’s easy enough to use.
