In many states, including New York, it is legal to install video monitoring devices in the rooms of residents of long-term care facilities. Think of "nanny cams" (usually for nannies to monitor infants and children).
Whether in the home or in a long-term care facility, we can install video equipment for monitoring your loved one. Cameras installed in a private home afford you the ability to interact with your loved one via audio and video.
In long-term care facilities, only video will be used (since many states do now allow audio recording in this manner). However, video monitoring provides important information, even without audio, as in the case of my relative.
Depending on the package selected, you will be able to monitor video alone, or interact with your loved one via audio and video. You will also be able to view the camera footage at any time via an app on your smart phone.
