An elderly monitoring system is different than most gifts you could think to give your mother. While you might think your gift tells your mom that you care about her and want her protected, she may look at it differently. It’s so important to talk to your mom before ordering an elderly call button for her. Have a conversation with her about the idea, and make sure she is open to it. Some seniors can be stubborn. If you spring this sort of thing on your mother, she may not want it… or much worse, she may keep it but not wear her button. So talk to your mom about getting an elderly monitoring system. Share with her that wearing that elderly call button is not about taking away independence, but about living independently for many years to come!
