Front door locks


New member
Aug 25, 2021
My Mum has dementia but lives on her own home with support and visits every day. She often leaves the front door key in the front door lock. This means that I cant open her front door with the key I have. This week she was unwell and struggled to get to the front door to let me in. The front door is a pretty new UPVC model. I've asked her not to leave her key in the front door but she forgets and I think she likes leaving it there because she can't lose it (which she has done many times). I would like to change the front door lock so that she can't leave the key in the lock and where I will always be able to get in. Can members recommend a solution, or the brand of a lock that might fit?
