In a medical emergency, getting the medical care you need as soon as possible can often mean the difference between a fast recovery, a serious medical episode and even death. For this reason, individuals who live alone, with no one available to call for help in the event of an accident or emergency, are at particular risk. When you have an elderly loved one or care for an individual with a medical problem, then that person’s wellbeing is always on your mind. You, however, cannot always be by their side. Providing your loved one with a medical alert system will ensure they get the help they need if an emergency ever occurs when you are away.
Fast Notification Means a Quick Response
Depending on the type of accident or emergency, receiving swift medical care often makes a big difference in the severity of the accident or episode and the individual’s ability to recover fully. Without a medical alert system, an individual living alone might not be able to reach a telephone in the event of an accident. Medical alert systems equip an individual with a call button which they can wear or carry with them everywhere in the house. If an individual falls and breaks a bone or has a medical episode, such as a heart attack, the ability to call for help will always be right at his or her fingertips.
An Increased Feeling of Security Improves Quality of Life
When an individual with a serious medical condition or an elderly person lives alone, the fear of falling or having a medical episode can often keep them from living full, active lives. With the safety of having an alert system on hand at all times and available anywhere in the house, people living alone have the ability to live their lives confidently, without the fear of incurring a potential injury with no way to call for help. For this reason, medical alert systems not only save lives by inciting a quick emergency response, but they also improve lives with increased security for both the individual and the caregiver.
Medical Monitoring for Your Loved Ones Day and Night
If you have a loved one who is aging, lives alone or who lives with health problems, then a medical alert system will not only provide you both with peace of mind but could also be a potential lifesaver in the event of a fall or other medical emergency.
