For those of you empty nesters who may also be caregivers for older parents or others or some of you may yourself be the older parent, take a look at this article about the personal emergency response system and see what you think. My own mother has this medical alarm and it works well for her. She can hear them talking all over her apartment, although it is pretty small. But she had it while she still lived in her house and they could hear her there too. It wasn’t a huge place either, but had several rooms and roundabout doorways and walls and such. Made her feel better and that she wasn’t so alone.
