Medical alert systems can help your family in many ways. When it comes to protection, peace of mind, and security for senior citizens, these systems offer the most benefits. Medical alert systems also offer peace of mind for families that cannot be nearby their loved ones all the time, as well as other benefits. Medical alert systems can help your family during accidents, emergencies, and even fires.
Accidents can happen to anyone while they are home and at any room or location on the property. For many people, dialing 911 or heading to the hospital is simple. However, for seniors, contact help can be difficult if not completely impossible during an accident. Having a medical alert system on hand means that seniors can call for immediate help as soon as an accident occurs. Medical personnel can arrive as soon as possible, without the victim of the accident ever needing to use a phone or attempting to go to the hospital on their own.
As we age, it can be harder to move around in slippery spots like the bathtub or on unstable ground like icy or wet sidewalks. When a senior falls down, there may not be any visible injuries, but there could be hidden injuries that need immediate treatment. Medical alert systems ensure seniors get fall treatment right away and get to the hospital if necessary by providing fall detection technology. This technology automatically detects falls and is able to alert the monitoring service of the accident immediately.
Medical emergencies like a stroke or heart attack should be treated as soon as possible to decrease the risk of further damage. These emergencies make it hard for seniors to speak or move, affecting their ability to seek help. With a medical alert system, help is only a button push away, which could be life saving in the event of a critical emergency.
There are many other types of medical emergencies that could make it difficult for seniors to contact help. These emergencies include low insulin, shock, breathing problems. Medical alert systems offer safety and peace of mind to both seniors and their families during emergencies, because help can be contacted quickly and efficiently. With fall detection technology, this call for help can be automatic and effective even if the person wearing the medical alert cannot push a button.
When a fire breaks out, it is easy to panic, especially for senior citizens who may be living alone. A senior may not be able to get to the phone or may not know what to do in the event of a fire. Authorities can be alerted of a fire more easily using a medical alert system, especially a pendant or bracelet. For those with breathing problems or existing health conditions that could be compromised by smoke inhalation, a medical alert system can be life saving.
