Aged Parents Are Like Little Kids

Ailz has bought her parents a new phone. Now they've got two. One each.  So if Dad is alone in the garden and falls and can't get up or Mom goes for a walk and ends up on a street she doesn't recognise- both things that have happened recently- there'll be no excuse for them not summoning help.

Will they do as they've been told and take a phone with them everywhere?

What do you think?

We've given my mother similar instructions. When we remind her about them she goes, "pish tush" and changes the subject.
