Hello Everyone, our mum has recently gone into hospital and had a partial hip replacement after falling down last few steps of our stairs. She is in early stage of Alzheimers and so far everything seems to have gone well (although the surgery was done quickly everything else seemed to grind to a halt over Christmas). She has now been moved from surgical ward to rehabilitation ward and we spoke to social services today about an enablement package on her return home. SS mentioned a Key Safe which we had not heard of before. We understand it is secure and is attached to a wall outside the property. We have said to go ahead with this but SS did say to us if they put the order in it cannot be cancelled so we needed to be as sure as we could be about saying yes. We thought we would go ahead with it as SS said that it would most likely be different people who would be coming to the house to help mum and we were not sure how mum would feel about different faces visiting whether this would confuse her. We were just wondering if any of you have experience of this key safe and whether it is possible if you don't like how it works whether you can stop using it as I am now wondering whether it would be taking the decision away from mom as to who she lets into her house, although we all live together myself and my sister work reduced hours one of us in the morning the other in the afternoon. For instance you sometimes hear how carers cannot get into a property as the person living there wont let them in, if you have a key safe would they just let themselves in regardless. Many Thanks I hope this thread has not been too wordy its just that we have never had to have anyone come into the house before as mum has up to now been fairly capable and mobile.
