Hi, My Dad died on 10/06, and now it's just my 63 y/o mother and I living together in a rural area. My mother has type 1 diabetes, and considering our finances are up in the air, I need to get a full-time job. My mother does a pretty good job taking care of her diabetes...however I'm afraid that when I am working, her blood sugar will go too low or she'll go into DKA, and won't be stable enough to call 911. I've thought of getting her life-alert. I know that senior-safety also goes to rural communities. Or maybe a symptom-detector? But that costs around $500... Does anyone have any advice, or suggestions?
