How to install Locks for Dementia Patients at Home Schlage Encode Install

This is for your loved ones that are living at home and have Dementia family that wants to physically run out or sneak out the door to try and “go home” or just attempt to get out of the place they life or stay with that feeling of “I’ve got to be going” syndrome. I did this with my 92 year old mom to keep her safe and to lower my 94 year old Dad’s stress, as she was trying to get out and my Dad could not keep up. I hope you find this helpful for your family member or friend. We basically turned the keypad to the inside so mom could not get out and then used the deadbolt on the bottom to keep the door secure. Let me know your experiences and how this helped.
