We are all some bit vulnerable to being attacked in our homes, but the sense of vulnerability is heightened for senior citizens, especially those who live alone. Elderly people usually make easy targets for burglars as they are less likely to offer resistance or report the crime. However, home security technology has become quite advanced, with sensor lighting and complex alarm systems among the innovations which pose a challenge to burglars. If you have elderly relatives or neighbors who live alone, you can help them to make their home more secure by checking in on them or assisting them with fitting security measures.
