7 Reasons to Buy a Medical Alert System Now

A Senior Comfortable with His Medical Alert Device

Medical alert systems are fast becoming one of the most cherished possessions of the elderly. Whether you purchase one yourself or receive it as a gift, you will soon appreciate the importance and convenience of elderly alert devices in your daily life. Disabled individuals, young or old, also find them a welcome companion at home or wherever they go.

Before you decide to buy a medical alert device, consult with your family and your primary caregiver to find out if it is a good fit for your needs and circumstances. You need to be able to understand how the alert system operates, have the ability to press the alert button, and communicate with the Call Center. If you can do these three things you are an excellent candidate for a medical alarm alert device.

Although there are many reasons for owning a medical alert device, they fall into seven main categories:

#1 – You Live Alone – Most seniors who live alone enjoy their independence, but this can become an issue at times. You may fall and can’t get up, burn yourself when cooking, your back can go out, or you may contract a sudden illness. This list can include many other incidents such as recovering from injuries, surgeries, or lingering sicknesses that you can’t handle alone.

#2 – No One Nearby to Help – Although you may live in a great neighborhood, other residents around you may be absent from home for long periods while at work. It may be the same for your children, grandchildren, or younger friends. Living with an elderly spouse may not provide the help you need in times of emergencies.

#3 – You Have Health Issues – Many elderly persons experience dizziness, have weaknesses, or unsteady gaits in their walk that create mobility problems. If you have fallen one or more times in the past, you are a strong candidate for a GPS medical alert device.

If you are the type of person who worries a lot, you can find peace of mind with your alert system. Others have memory or wandering issues that can leave them alone or frustrated and don’t know what to do at times. Some individuals under the care of one or more doctors don’t want to follow all of their physicians’ advice and this creates additional safety issues.

#4 – Your Medications Have Side Effects – Some of the elderly take a lot of medicines, some of which may produce unwanted side effects. This alone can make living by yourself at home an accident waiting to happen. Dizziness, drowsiness, diarrhea, insomnia, headaches, and other conditions can occur that can through you off balance more than once during the day or night. Having a call button for medical help is a blessing when these side effects become serious issues.

#5 – You May Experience a Fire, Burglary, or Natural Disaster – Living alone or with another elderly person may not equip you with the ability to deal with a fire, burglary, or natural disaster. If any of these occur, you need assistance as soon as possible and this is where your medical alert device is a life-saver.

#6 – They Are Affordable for Anyone – Compared to living in a nursing home or assisted living center, a home medical alert system is a bargain. The nationwide average cost of living in a private room in nursing homes is more than $83,600 per year. Living at home and using a medical alert device will cost less than $40.00 per month.

#7 – Medical Alert Systems and Devices Are User-Friendly – Current users of medical alert systems report they are easy to understand and use. Unlike cell phones that can be challenging for disabled adults and seniors, medical alert devices are simple and fast to use. Another issue with using cell phones to call for help is forgetting phone numbers and pressing tiny keys when an emergency occurs. Wearing your device as a necklace pendant or on your wrist is easy to navigate by just pushing one large button.
