Best Information for Helping Elderly Live Independent

My father is pretty old, and he is still as stubborn as ever. I think I would call him as stubborn as a mule, but that would be unkind to the mule. My father is far more stubborn and in particular, he refuses to stop living alone, even though he has had to falls this week. I am really upset about this situation, but I am reading about ways to make independent living for the elderly. I have some ideas that might make it more safe for my dad to live on his own, and I am going to have to try to implement them, since he won’t change his mind about coming to live with me, or moving into a nursing facility.

I wish that he wasn’t so stubborn on this matter, because I really love him and I worry about him a lot when he is by himself at his house. I think that one thing that could help to make him more safe is a system for automation when it comes to the doors. That would probably be helpful in preventing strangers from breaking in, and other factors like that. I am not really sure how much it would cost to set up a system like that, but I had read about some system like that a time back. I can’t quite remember what it is called off of the top of my head though.

I am going to check back and see if I can figure out what it was called. I will do a few internet searches and see what I am able to turn up on the subject. It might be that I can figure it out with some ease, and that would be great of course, but I also might not be able to find what I am looking for.
