Home Medical Alarm - the Cost is Well Worth My Decreased Stress and Worry Level

Home Medical Alarm

I am worried about mom and dad being at home alone, or about their safety generally, when I can't be there. I'll tell you, my elderly parents (my dad is nearly deaf, and Mom’s eyesight isn’t too great) still live in their home, but I became increasingly worried about falls. What would my mom do if she fell down while doing laundry, and then laid there for hours because nobody knew? It's enough to give you nightmares!


I used to laugh at that commercial about help, I can't get up.., but not anymore. My friend's father slipped in the bathtub and, thank goodness, had a home medical alert system. If he hadn't, chances are he could've lain there for days without help.

I got online and did some research. I chose a home medical alarm system that comes with 24/7 monitoring capabilities, check-in services, and provide the equipment that can be activated by pushing a button or voice capabilities.

The system I chose is a home medical alarm system that comes with a base station with battery backup, two-way communication options, and remote phone answering. There's nothing more comforting than knowing that mom and dad living alone like they are and has an increased risk of accidents, like falling down or getting stuck in the basement have access to first responders.

Medical Alert Necklace for my Mom
by: Amy

Not long ago, I purchased one of those home medical alarms in the form of a medical alarm necklace for my mom. It can be activated by pressing on the pendant, but it also has a remote phone answering capability so that Mom can answer an incoming call through the base station.

This alleviates the need for her to feel that she has to hurry and rush to pick up the phone, reducing her risk of falls

Home Medical Alarm
by: Wendy

I bought a home medical alarm for my grandmother, and after doing some research, found a company that doesn't charge any cancellation fee, no activation fees, and affordable plan options as well as free delivery of the equipment.

You can't put price tag on safety and security, and this helps to calm some of my worries and stress when I'm not around.

She slipped and almost fell once, and scared me to death as after she was okay I got to thinking about what if I had not been there or come by for another couple of hours....the guilt and stress was too much. Had to get something done.
