Medical Alert Systems
If you’re like the vast majority of Seniors, you want to grow old in your own home. But you know that advancing years bring the likelihood of acute need for emergency medical attention. And when you most need to communicate clearly with emergency dispatchers or responders, you may be least capable of doing so. Today’s medical alert systems allow you to wear a device on a lanyard that connects you to instantly with a live person who will have immediate access to the medical information you have provided them, so that they can communicate with emergency responders without pressing you for details in the midst of a health crisis. Many devices are waterproof and can be worn in the bath or shower. Some are equipped with fall sensors that automatically alert a dispatcher if a fall is detected. You can send an alert that will send emergency medical help, or just a neighbor or family member. Most monitoring companies offer service without a long-term contract.
