Emergency Medical Alert Systems can Save a Life
Emergency Medical Alert Systems
Emergency medical alert systems, whether worn as a necklace, or bracelet, or an entire home alert system is a great way to relieve the stress and worry from those with aging parents, especially when you can't be there.
Like many people, I always worried about my mom when she was home alone, especially because of my long work hours. I did some research and found a number of companies, including nationally recognized brands that provided a variety of options when it comes to these systems.
I was happy to find that the wristbands and necklaces or pendants that they offer now are waterproof, which is perfect for when Mom takes a shower (although I do request that she wait until somebody can help her).
One of the most popular emergency medical alert systems on the market today include the pendant worn around the neck or the wristband, each equipped with a help button. The wristband and pendant connects wirelessly to a base station about the size of an answering machine, but provides two-way communication to the company providing the equipment.
Don't forget to ask if responders are available 24/7 including holidays! When the button is pressed, a representative from the company will answer the call, and based on need, will send appropriate emergency responders.
Most emergency medical alert systems function on traditional phone lines and have a good range that provides a sense of security that we all want when it comes to our elderly loved ones.
