The elderly need to be monitored and looked after. Surveillance cameras are a fantastic way to help protect and monitor a nursing home or elder care facility. Group homes and nursing homes are at an all-time high as more and more retirees choose to make them their permanent residence. Security is a top priority when you consider the record number of impaired and elderly people living in such large groups. A well installed CCTV system can be an effective way to keep staff, residents and the property safe from intruders, vandalism, and theft.
