You’ve made the final decision on a medical alert system and though it seems like a once-and-done decision, there are many ways you can ensure you are getting the most out of your service.
LifeFone offers these pointers on how to maximize your experience:
- One of the most important things we encourage our subscribers to do once they install the system is to push the button as they move about the home. The goal is to ensure that the subscriber feels comfortable understanding the range of the system and how loud it is from various locations in the home. This simple step helps subscribers gain confidence in their purchase!
- We also recommend that subscribers push the button approximately once a month to become familiar with how the system works. We want our customers to feel comfortable and confident so that if a true emergency occurs, they will push the button without hesitation.
If you didn’t purchase any accessories, it’s not too late. You may find that you want to add wall mounted help button. While subscribers should always wear their pendant or wristlet, some people still like to locate several of these buttons a foot off the floor in various locations in case of an emergency.
Another valuable accessory is the lock box. In the event of an emergency, EMT’s need to access the home and if they can’t get in, they may break down the door. Some choose to leave a key with a neighbor but if they aren’t home, and even if they are, those extra minutes trying to access the key can be very important. LifeFone recommends a lock box. You choose the code and in an emergency, LifeFone provides the code to EMT’s and precious minutes are saved!
