Medical alert systems provide peace of mind to caregivers of aging loved ones. They also can help your loved one age in place longer. How a traditional medical alert system works is, you have a base station unit in your home and a wearable pendant. Pendants can be worn as a necklace, on the wrist or attached to a belt clip. Some systems are very discreet as the industry has come a long way.
Once the pendant is pushed or if you have automatic fall detection and you fall, it will call into the medical alert monitoring center. You will be connected to a call center agent who will get you the help you need. Please note that automatic fall detection is not 100% accurate but it is a great addition to have if you are prone to dizzy spells or falls. There are also mobile on-the-go medical alert systems that can be worn anywhere outside of the home. These are great for seniors who are active and on-the-go.
Medical alert companies have many add-ons that help caregivers track their loved one’s well-being such as activity monitoring, medication monitoring as well as carbon monoxide and smoke detection systems. If you are in the market for a medical alert device, MedicalAlertAdvice.com has honest reviews, pricing information and everything you need to know about which system your loved one may need.
