While we all know that getting older is simply a fact of life, it is not a fact that getting older means living in fear that something will go wrong and no one will be there to help you. There are senior medical alarms available to put those fears to rest.
Senior medical alarms such as medical alert systems provide you with 24 hour a day, seven day a week monitoring. So if there is a medical or other type of emergency, all you have to do is press the alert button on your medical pendant or bracelet. A call will be placed to the central monitoring facility and you will be able to speak to a medically trained operator. The operator will know your name and have your vital information. If you and the operator feel it is necessary, an ambulance ill be dispatched to your home. The operator will also have all of your contact information so he or she can call your family or friends.
Such a system provides peace of mind for seniors who live alone that they are never truly alone — help is just the press of a button away.
Advances in technology have made senior alert systems mobile. Packed with cellular and GPS technology, you can now take your portable base unit with you. About the size of a deck of cards, it easily fits into any bag or a carrying case you can wear around on your belt. The same rules apply — you press the button on your pendant or on the unit, and an operator will come on. Using the GPS, the operator will know exactly where to send help.
Senior medical alarms have made life easier and safer for the growing aging population. Monitoring costs just a couple of dollars a day; a mere pittance in the grand scheme of things.
