It's vital to peace of mind that your loved ones be protected, and there's no better protection for your parents or other family members than the security of a medical alert in the house.
By allowing a fallen individual to reach for remote help in a timely manner after a fall or other accident, chances for a speedy and full recovery are vastly improved. Elderly lacking an alert system who suffer from injuries caused by a simple fall cannot get themselves help without the further pain and stress of carefully making it to a phone.
The last thing you want is for anyone you love to feel abandoned and helpless, so the sooner you act to ensure they have access to aid the better you and they will sleep at night, comforted by the thought that help is always within reach. There is something called the "Golden Hour" – if a love one falls and they spend less than an hour on the floor there is a greater than 90% chance of recovery and continuing to live independently. If however they are on the floor for a longer period of time, chances are that they will not make a full recovery and be more likely to need assisted care.
With luck the alert will never be needed – but if it is, you'll be happy knowing friendly and attentive operators have you, and your Mom, covered.
