Although this video is in reference to caring for an elderly parent; the information contained is applicable to many carers across a number of caring roles and situations. They do advertise their own shop for purchasing the different technologies mentioned in the clip, however many retailers will stock these items so you should feel free to shop around. What is good is that they highlight some very simple but effective interventions that can help make the home environment safer.
