Extender for vidcam base station?

For elderly parents in large apt., with no wifi in kitchen area due to distance from router, can a range extender be used from camera to its base station? The base station plugs into the router, but I assume these extenders are made to send signal to router, and not to an accessory like base station. Or will base station show up as wifi signal that is avail to connect router to? Thanks.
