My grandmother passed away in the restroom and nobody knew until later when it was too late to save her. It was years ago but whenever I think about this I feel really bad. I wish there were something, anything that would notify me or one of my family member when she passed out. We might be able to save her. The tragedy inspired me a lot, the problem I try to solve is so simple, it was just the fact that "no matter how much you love somebody, you can't be with them 24/7".

I think it would be helpful.
