We recently moved my elderly aunt to an apartment near me. I have hired an aide to be with her 9 - 5 weekdays. We had someone at nights but my aunt hated her so I fired her and she is now alone at night and on weekends. H and I stop by once a week or so at night and on weekends, we go by twice a day and have dinner with her once. She can't live in my house because she has always lived alone and my dogs and cat scare her and my house is too messy and noisy for her. I am looking into medical alert systems for her. She is ambulatory with a walker, can toilet and feed herself (but not cook anymore). Her memory is pretty good but she gets confused occasionally. The doctor says she has mild Alzheimer's but I am taking her to a neuro to confirm or deny. Amazingly, she is now directly across the street from a locally renowned Alzheimer's day care facility which I am checking out this week. If she qualifies, we will get free transportation. I am not sure how much it will cost or if her insurance will cover it but she has sufficient resources to pay something. My question after all this is does anyone have any recommendations for a particular service? I am in downstate NY but most of the ads say that they are nationwide in monitoring. I am looking for a 24/7 service that will notify the local police, fire or ambulance if needed and contact H or myself (H works in town so I would list him first). The prices range from $18 to $35 per month. She should be provided with either a necklace or a wrist watch type device.
