In May, we celebrated Mother’s Day. We will celebrate Father’s Day very soon….
Many of us may have seen our parent(s) face-to-face for the first time in several months — or possibly a year or longer.
If we notice changes in their health, mobility, or wellbeing, we may now be the ones who worry about them, instead of the other way around.
As we prepare to be better caregivers, protectors, and friends to our elder loved ones, we realize that older family members may need our assistance and care more now than ever.
If you feel that now is the time to consider DME (durable medical equipment), physical or occupational therapy, home care, assisted living, or hospice, it may be time to consider the medic alert system, as well. Many people feel a PERS (Personal Emergency Response System) is only for an elder person who falls. However, it is for anyone — regardless of age — who would benefit from the ability to get help ASAP in an emergent situation.
800,000 seniors are hospitalized after a fall and the average hospital costs around a fall is $30,000! This is a staggering statistic that many families are experiencing. One in three (1/3) of seniors 65 and older will fall this year. Nearly half (48%) need help up after they get down. For those who cannot get up, their health is typically compromised, because they lay there for hours, or worse, days. If this happens, their families feel that they are not able to remain independent. They start looking for other options to keep their loved ones “safe” and oftentimes it means moving their loved ones out of their family homes.
A medical alert system will not prevent a fall, heart attack, stroke, or any other emergency, but it will get help IF/WHEN it happens — even if you cannot speak!
A new subscriber, Ms. JoAnn R., had this to say about the Around the Clock Medical Alarms service: “You have been so easy to talk to and the setup was easy. Les was so nice and explained everything well. I really like the button around my neck. I have told people about you! Thank you and God Bless ALL of you. My daughter got to know Linda by phone and is very pleased!”
