According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2010, coronary illness was the greatest reason for death in those over age 65. At the point when a crisis happens, early intervention enhances the possibilities of a full recovery. Indeed, the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute brings up the importance of prompt medication for a heart attack, stressing that survival rates are enhanced if action is taken immediately.
What’s worse is that as we age falls become a life altering issue that can be dealt with by determining certain factors in an aging one’s life. As stated by the CDC, one of three seniors over the age of 65 fall every year, a quarter of them endure moderate or extreme damages. Of the 2.3 million seniors treated for fall damages in U.S. throughout 2010, more than 662,000 needed hospitalization. The three keys behind quick response and limiting the future affects include:
- Getting Help When You Need It: Medical alert devices provide access to immediate help 24 hours a day, seven days a week. These medical alerts can dispatch relatives or responders, a rescue vehicle, police, or fire response within minutes. This can allow you to get the help or medical attention you need when you need it the most even if you are unable to summon help.
- Convenience: Medical alert devices are particularly intended to be easy to use. They are commonly worn on the wrist or around the neck, and open two-way voice communication with the call center at the push of a button. This allows an aging senior who has been injured the ability to receive help when it’s most needed.
- True serenity: According to a study in Age and Aging, it is not unusual for seniors to have a fear of emergencies or falling. This apprehension can shake their trust and can even make them fearful of doing normal physical daily activities. Realizing that help is accessible if something happens can offer true peace of mind for both seniors and for their families.
