Is It Time to Get a Medical Alert System?

A medical alert system includes equipment that is worn around the neck or wrist and when pushed will send a signal to a monitoring operator. The specialist will communicate to the customer and send help if needed. These systems are great as they give families peace of mind that help will come when needed. Similarly they provide options to seniors who wish to continue living independently.

If you're debating whether it's time to get a medical alert system for yourself or a loved one consider the following:

  • Is it hard to get around? Do physical impairments exist, such as problems hearing, seeing or walking?
  • Do they struggle with balance? Have they fallen in the last twelve months? Do they use a walker or cane to get around?
  • How often are you person alone? For several hours a day or longer? Would someone be there if you fell down and couldn't get back on your feet?
  • Do major medical problems exist? If so, have you been in the hospital in the last six to twelve months? Do your conditions include the heart or lungs?
  • Do they worry about safety and what would happen if a medical emergency came up? What about if intruders entered the home - what would you do?
  • Despite medical issues do you desire to continue living at home?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions it may be time to investigate the installation of a medical alert system. Medical alert systems allow seniors and those with major medical concerns to continue to live at home for a longer period of time. Installation is often simple and can be completed by the homeowner or a family member. The equipment is affordable at typically $1 a day and provides the reassurance that should a situation arise emergency services will arrive timely.

Choose a company with a strong reputation and compare and contrast pricing and contracts before making a final decision. Look for equipment that can sense falls and other emergency situations. Also look for a strong warranty program should the equipment stop working.

Overall, a medical alert system is a strong option for those that enjoy their independence but are looking for additional measures of safety should something occur. Mobility issues and medical concerns are often the trigger for someone to install a medical alert system. However, being alone, after losing a spouse, is another time in which many decide they need additional support to feel safe again.
