Eight years ago my nephew had a stroke and he lay on the floor for 2 days before I found him. We had a relationship where he came to see me without fail 2 days a week. In between we might communicate once or twice by phone or email. So when I had been unable to reach him for several days I got anxious. I knew he had not just gone away as he has a cat. I got a taxi down on the friday and found him just able to get to the door.
He was fortunate enough to make an 80% recovery from the stroke. His mobility is still impaired in that he has a weakness on one side. However he has retained most of his brain function and is still able to build and repair computers - allbeit more slowly.
I had cctv outside and we discussed the possibility of locating a camera inside his home in a place where I would normally expect him to pass once or twice in the day. We settled on the hall because he has to go there to open the door and pick up his post. However it doesnt infringe his privacy in other parts of his home. I have a similar camera located just outside my kitchen door where it obviously shows when I go out the garden etc.
We both have the app on mobile devices and its a shared system so we can keep a check one one another. These cameras cost about £30 on Amazon. They can run for about 4 weeks in between charging. So long as they are located in an easy to reach place anyone could probably manage to rechange and locate them in between.
They are probably ideal for people who live a distance from elderly or otherwise vulnerable relatives whom they want to keep an eye on without overtly intruding.
