Senior Medical Alarms Reduce Risk of Injury
Senior Medical Alarms
I know that when most people hear about senior medical alarms that they're thinking about that commercial where the older woman falls down and hurts herself and can't get to the phone.
However, senior medical alarms go way beyond the personal pendant or bracelet type that can be used to alert the alarm company, who can then send first responders to the scene if needed.
Senior medical alarms can also alert you if the temperature in the house or apartment gets too high or too low. Bed alarms are also available, and beneficial, especially for caregivers taking care of Alzheimer's patients who have a tendency to either wander, as well as those who have a tendency to fall out of bed.
A number of senior medical alarms can even be placed on doorways. This type of senior medical alarm is called a dementia wandering alarm and is ideal for various forms of dementia, but also Parkinson's disease.
These alarms are especially valuable and beneficial and alert others in the home if a loved one has opened a door and made an effort to wander outside. These systems create an alarm and or call a specified telephone number to alert caregivers or family members to a potential wandering situation.
As you can see, senior medical alarms come in a variety of shapes and sizes and deal specifically with certain issues. If you have an aging parent or loved one that you worry about, consider one of these alarms.
