How a Medical Alarm Works

A medical alarm is designed to be worn around your neck, through a specially designed necklace. Medical alarm systems allow the person wearing the necklace to easily notify the medical alert company, who will call the police or your emergency contacts in the event of an emergency based on the personalized care plan set up by the user.

Medical alarm systems allow the person wearing the necklace to easily notify the medical alert company, who will call the police or your emergency contacts in the event of an emergency based on the personalized care plan set up by the user. For instance, if you have an elderly family member that you believe is prone to falling and would be unable to get up or support themselves in such a situation, it's very important that they have a medical alarm for their own safety. The medical alarm allows them to notify the medical alert company that they have fallen or injured themselves. When the medical alert company receives the notification that the alarm has been set, they will come on through the speaker system and attempt to contact the individual. If they cannot receive contact from them, emergency personnel and contacts will be notified.

Medical alarms are the basis of an emergency care plan

Caring for someone who is elderly or prone to falling or injuring themselves can be difficult to do. The medical alarm system allows you to have an emergency care plan in place. Essentially, they will wear the medical alarm at all times, so that if they fall or injure themselves, they can simply press the alarm button and the company will be notified. It's a very efficient emergency care plan and it allows them to get emergency help in a time of great need.

Medical alarms move with you while on the go

If you're a snow bird, the medical alarm can travel with you. The base unit can be re-positioned at any time simply by notifying LifeFone or your new, seasonal address. If you're going on vacation, LifeFone subscribers automatically receive a LifeFone Emergency Response Card. This card is engraved with your name and personal identification number and allows quick retrieval of key information needed in an emergency.
