Medical Alert Monitoring for Seniors
Maintaining your independence is important to you. Arpel’s medical alarm systems can help you do that.
Security is more than just alarm systems and CCTV cameras. Sometimes, home safety and security take the form of medical alert monitoring. If you or a loved one lives alone and is especially susceptible to a fall or accident, a life alert device is an excellent investment. While admitting you need extra help can be challenging, it’s always better to have a safety measure in place, even if nothing ever goes wrong. At Arpel Security Systems, we’re committed to helping you and your loved ones stay safe with medical alert systems. Our Vancouver, BC-based team is here for you, whether you’re ready to purchase a device or you need some help narrowing down your options.
What Is Medical Alert Monitoring?
Medical alert systems are essential safety measures that monitor seniors and alert the proper authorities in the case of an emergency. When we think of life alert systems, we typically imagine a device that only contacts paramedics. While this is their primary purpose, many devices can also be programmed to alert family members, guardians, and caregivers. Some medical alert devices may work a little differently, but in general, this technology works by sending a signal to a monitoring system whenever a medical emergency is detected. The alert is evaluated, and medical professionals may be contacted. Falls and other types of injuries are most often associated with triggering life alert devices.
How Our Systems Work
Arpel Security Systems is proud to provide a selection of devices that keeps you safe while allowing you to maintain independence. Medical alert monitoring is a vital part of residential security for many, and we strive to offer only the highest-quality products. We provide wireless medical alert devices that can be worn on the wrist or as a pendant around the neck for convenient access. Each device is water-resistant, so you or your loved one can wear it while showering or swimming, when the risk of a fall or accident may be heightened. Our medical alert monitoring systems work as follows:
- The user presses the button on the bracelet, necklace, or another piece of jewelry
- The device sends a signal to Arpel Security Systems’ 24-hour Central Station
- An operator immediately responds to the alarm, alerting the appropriate emergency medical services and the designated contact person
Consider the Details of Each Device
It’s easy to overlook the little details when you’re making such a big purchase. However, you may want to evaluate some of the features available to you. You’ll also want to consider whether your device will need updates and how long the battery will last. Be sure that it’s a device you or your loved one can set up with minimal assistance. Check for other details such as range, wearability, and volume.
Medical Alert Costs
Before you make your final decision, don’t forget to check the price tag. Some devices come at a premium, and others have lots of fees and hidden costs attached. Make sure you understand complicated pricing plans and monthly payments before you sign off on your new device. It’s also a good idea to look at discounts you may be able to use, as well as guarantees and cancellation policies. Our team can help you make the right decision for yourself or your loved one.
