Do most assisted living communities have security cameras?

    Resident security is a top priority at assisted living communities. That's why most locales have a number of safety measures in place to protect residents both inside and out of their homes and around the facilities. Security cameras make up just one part of a well-planned program, which covers the grounds 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

    Residents can rest easy knowing security cameras placed around the community serve as both a crime deterrent and a monitoring system, in the event one of the residents is in need of assistance. It's reassuring to know that security cameras watch and record all action around an assisted living community, and that security personnel review all of the action to prevent unauthorized visitors – or, on the flip side, to keep an eye on memory-impaired seniors who have a history of wandering off.

    Another function of these "eyes in the sky" is to ensure the security of any medical supplies and medications, both over-the-counter and prescription, located within the assisted living facility. No one should have to worry about their personal effects or safety, especially those who require assistance in their day-to-day lives. With the installation of security cameras, assisted living communities show their commitment to resident safety.
