How can I keep track of my elderly mother?

Episode 1494 (13:39)

Matt from Placentia

Matt's mother has dementia and has a habit of leaving the house at night. How can he be alerted when her door is open? Leo says a better option — a GPS device that she can wear. There are bracelets and watches that will broadcast her location, but she could take it off. The GPS SmartSole is a good idea. It's an insole that goes into the shoe.

To monitor the door, Leo says that the Ring Video Doorbell is a good thing because it sets off an alert when there's any movement at the door and would send him the video signal. He can also monitor anyone who rings the doorbell and answer them remotely.
