NannyCam

NannyCam

Any one here use a nannyCam at a loved ones room in a nursing home? My mother is in a home in Texas and they told us we could put in a NannyCam/Safety Care camera. I am researching how it works and which kind would be good to use in that kind of environment. any suggestions would be appreciated.

My father-in-law is not making any sense. He talks with regular and made up words all the time. How do other caregivers handle this?

I'm also wondering if this really is "normal" for dementia. All of my dementia information says that people with this disease will sometimes not make sense. However, he is not making sense all of the time. He's seeing things that aren't there and making up words.

Recommended men's razor?

Recommended men's razor?

Dad has used a refillable razor (replaceable blades) for years. But I watched him shave the other day, and he actually scares me with how fast and rough he is. He only nicked himself once that day, but I think it's going to happen more often.

My 84 year old brother has Dementia with Lewy Bodies

Hello, my brother is 22 year older than me. There are no siblings in between. He never married and have no children. We cannot convince my brother who stays with me and my son that my son has not taken his address books. He has been with us 2 years and insists that my 26 year old son, who is twice as large, wears his clothes, wears his shoes and took all of his address books. We try to deflect, but sometimes it turns into full blow shouting matches. My son now… read more
