Keep Your Elderly Love One Safe And Secure With Keyless Door Locks
Ok, this is not so much a great gift for very elderly senior citizens as it’s a great gift for those who might be caring for a senior citizen – keyless door locks are just great.
When I was my mom’s caregiver, I had to hire professional caregivers to help me out as there were times that I was just lost in what to do. So, I gave out a lot of house keys and, sometimes, with very short notice, I’d give a ‘caregiver’ the boot – never to see my key again.
After a few visits with my friendly locksmith, it dawned on me that one of these keyless door locks would be just what we needed.
As I hired new caregivers, I’d set a code for them and, as they quit or I fired them, I just deleted their individual key code. Voila! My home was instantly secure again!
I love these locks, even now that Mom is no longer with me. In fact, with the use of this lock and my new car that doesn’t have a key, I no longer even carry a keyring! Such freedom from looking for lost keys all the time.
On this webpage, you’ll find both keyless door locks and keyless deadbolts; both would be a wonderful addition to any senior citizen’s home.
One word of warning though; if you’re dealing with a dementia or Alzheimer’s patient who might be left alone, think twice about putting something on their door that they have to remember a code for. They might get locked out and can’t get back in.
Note also though that most of these keyless door locks and deadbolts also come with keys.
Keyless Door Locks
These electronic touchpad keyless door locks are all highly rated on Amazon.com. All of these locks have the ability to add multiple people; some, like the Lockey in the last link below, only allow 6 unique user codes at a time. Make sure that you carefully read the descriptions before purchasing.
Don’t worry if the lever is on the wrong side of the door lock for your particular door; most of these door handles are reversible.
