Can only recommend a NAS with RAID 5 (2-4 mirrored disks). Even better: Get two, place one of them in your grandmothers attic and set up a mirror between the two NAS units.

A RAID is not a replacement for a back-up. Yes, you get more protection from failed drives, but you are still relying on a single piece of hardware (the RAID controller), and if that fails all your data is gone.
