I thought it would be easy to get info re this vias search. WRONG. Would some body give me a quick resource link for an alert for when someone is getting out of bed.

 

Thanks

Thanks so much Cheryle...did not think about Amazon and the one at the Alz Shop was really expensive.

 

BTW: thankfully this is not for us...yet

Here's a company that specializes in bed and chair alarms.

http://www.kerrmedical.com/bedandchairmonitors.aspx

 The last one on this page is a talking bed alarm. Not recommending any one in particular but for certain patients who tended to exit the bed often, the talking alarm was helpful. You can record your own voice and tell your LO to lay back down. This might give you a little more time to get to them. All a matter of choice. For most alarms you will need a pad or mat. Select one for the bed if that is your concern. There are also chair pads available and mats for the floor.

Hope this helps

Stephanie

There are other styles, e.g., infrared motion sensors.
