Jean Peters felt a wave of anxiety sweep over her as she watched video footage of her frail, 85-year-old mother being ridiculed by a nursing aide at York Gardens senior home in Edina. “That is why I am so rough with you.” Now, nearly two years after catching the incident on video, Peters and her sister Kay Bromelkamp have become zealous proponents of using miniature cameras to catch abuse in senior homes.The female aide can be heard repeatedly chastising the elderly woman, twice calling her a “grown-ass adult” as she tugged on her clothing and yanked at her bra. The cameras, which cost as little as and can fit inside a teddy bear or potted plant, have surged in popularity despite privacy concerns and calls for more regulation.

Many families want to know how to install cameras after detecting suspicious signs, such as sudden mood swings or unexplained bruising, said Cheryl Hennen, state long-term care ombudsman.

A half-dozen states have established rules governing electronic surveillance in senior homes, but Minnesota law is still largely silent on their use, which has allowed the technology to proliferate.

Now’s the time to invest in a nanny cam so you can keep tabs wirelessly and even review the footage later using USB-compatible storage.

Features like motion activation, night vision, and smartphone connectivity mean your nanny cam is as convenient as it is useful!
