Should I get a medical alert system? Many seniors live on their own without grown children nearby to assist them when they have a medical emergency. These individuals can really benefit the most from such a system.

Know Techie’s recent article entitled “Should every senior citizen own a medical alert system?” gives us some reasons why every senior citizen should have one.

A medical alert system is a simple device that monitors a person in their home and sends an electronic signal, if the emergency button is pressed. At the call center, a medical professional responds to the call. If the person can’t talk, help is sent.

Some Features. A medical alert system for seniors should have the following features:

  • Ease of use
  • It should be comfortable to wear and water-resistant
  • Have a long-lasting battery and GPS
  • 24/7 live assistance; and
  • Automatic fall detection.

It is also important to look at the alert’s attractiveness because some elderly fear the stigma associated with such a device.

Promotes Peace of Mind. A caregiver and/or a family member will have peace of mind. If anything happens, they will have access to immediate assistance. This can improve a senior’s quality of life.

Emergency Help. Every minute matters in an emergency. A medical alert system will ensure that the seniors can access medical help right away. Every call center has experienced health experts to handle any situation.

If you don’t have a caregiver, the thought of having continuous monitoring can give you peace of mind.
