The request came when mum lost some night sleep and a routine shift was made, but also checking if she needed a shift due to her incontinent. Mom is very immobile, and the shifts required a lot of both her and the staff. Now I know that mum is cared for when there is a need and she can sleep through the night if no change is needed. It is also good to know that she does not sit or lie down with wet nappies for many hours, which in turn can lead to urinary tract infection. Since mum struggles with words, I know that a “sensor assistant” helps her to speak out, so then we as relatives feel confident that mum is well», says daughter Siri.
