Don't know if I posted this before or not but it was something we did for Mom that helped us all A LOT! I bought a cordless doorbell at the hardware store and mounted the button on her water mug. You could mount it on anything big enough to find easily (so it doesn't get lost in bedclothes or beside a chair cushion) that is light enough for your PD patient to grab. This works like a hospital call light and was a real help when Mom's vocal cords weren't working so well. She would punch the button and the doorbell would ring where we had the chime plugged in. This was so helpful when I was in the basement doing laundry or in a room with a fan on where I wouldn't hear her voice.
Hope this idea helps someone.
