Confounding Door Lock - Seniors

This ingenious, strong Alzheimer’s door lock requires no key and does not look like a lock. It opens by pulling and rotating the door-jamming "blocker" out of the way of an in-swinging door. Caregivers can unlock the confounding door lock easily, but persons with dementia (who do not know the trick) can try for hours with no success.

This Alzheimer’s safety device works on doors that swing inward only. It's easy to install for any handy person, requiring only three screws (provided). It can be installed on wood or a metal frame and requires a drill and a screw driver. (provided)

Can be installed on wood or metal doors, requires a drill and a screw driver. Not recommended for use on exit doors - for safety reasons. Lock access only from inside.

Recommendation: When using this lock to deny access for people with dementia, locate the Confounding Door Lock either exceptionally high or exceptionally low - where one would not expect to find a lock. The combination of an unusual appearance and unusual location will aid in disguising the device.

My wife has stage 6 Alzheimer's and will attempt to wander very often. The Door Guardian does a great job of keeping her safe.

Well worth the price! August 29, 2017

Recently purchased the Guardian Lock and has already proven to be effective. Very easy to install in less than 30 minutes and easy to operate for my 85 year old Father while keeping my 83 year old Mother from wandering. I would highly recommend this product to anyone.

I recently purchased (1) Door Guardian to help keep my 83 year old Mother from "Wandering" out of her home during the time my 85 year old Father takes a nap. Easy to install (less than 30 minutes) and works effectively. I just recently ordered (2) more for making the entire house secure. The only downside of this product is the quality of the Phillips screw heads. I drilled the proper lead holes but just make sure you have the "exact size" Phillips screwdriver/bit to install this product.

Works great easy to install. Husband has Parkinson's/dementia and can't figure out how to open the door.
