Today’s seniors live active, interesting lives. They don’t want an accident or injury to slow them down. That’s why—along with health and auto insurance—they invest in “fall insurance”: a medical alarm button that brings help quickly if they can’t get to a telephone.
These wireless, high tech systems are one of the great tools available for added safety and protection in the home. Lightweight and waterproof, medical alarm buttons enable wearers to summon emergency assistance from anywhere in their home or yard.
Following are common questions which people often have as they begin researching this technology:
Will a personal medical alarm somehow limit my independence?
No. Wearing a wrist button or pendant alarm around the house or yard in no way interferes with your independence. Instead, the button insures you’ll be able to receive immediate medical help in case of a fall or accident. A delay of minutes or hours in getting medical attention increases the risk of aggravating an injury. Speedy medical help cannot only reduce the severity of an injury, it can also help insure you’ll be able to return home to independent living.
