Hi, I've just joined this forum as I'm looking for information about a dementia friendly toaster for my mum. Mum was diagnosed a couple of years ago now, she's still managing at home and has carers three times a day to help her. The problem is over the last two weeks the smoke alarm has been set off twice by her burning toast. She has an alarm system linked to a care line and as they were unable to speak to her (because she couldn't hear them due to the alarm) the fire brigade were called out. The first time I was able to get a neighbour over to check on her but it was too late to cancel the call. After the first time I put tape over the controls and set it at the right temperature but she has obviously popped it down again causing it to burn. I suppose really the only toaster that would be safe would be one with a smoke detector attached to it. Is there such a one available ? I can't find one. The only other alternative is to take it off her or just for her to have toast when the carers are there to supervise. I don't want to take her independence away as she probably eats toast and sandwiches the most but I really don't want her to be a nuisance to the emergency services. Any advice welcome ? ? Thanks !
