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.

Not sure, never got to use it on patient December 17, 2018
Reviewer: Danny Beauclair from Burlingame, KS United States  
I ordered it for my dad, but before I could see him interact with the lock, he went down hill and had to go to hospice to die confined to a bed. I think it would have worked tho. Sorry I could not make a better review.

The door guardian is amazing.  It's so easy to open and close, but an Alzheimer's patient could never figure it out.  It was easy to install and not terribly obvious.

Helped with our problem December 11, 2018
