Choosing a trusted medical alert system provider is a big decision. What are the pros and cons? What are you getting for your money?
Here, LifeFone dispels some myths about its trusted medical alert system providers. If you still can't decide if LifeFone is for you, read the LifeFone reviews at the bottom of this article.
Myth: Most medical alert systems are set up like security systems, so if someone falls they're hard to access.
Truth: Trusted medical alert system provider LifeFone has an easy-to-access pendant that is both lightweight and waterproof, so there's no need to get up in order to reach any units that can signal for help. With the pendant worn around your neck or on a wristband, wherever you feel comfortable wearing it, its lightweight feel means you'll hardly notice it, and because it's waterproof, there's no need to worry about it getting wet.
Myth: If I am worried about the fall risk of a parent, spouse or other older adult, I shouldn't bring it up because it might hurt their feelings, and it's none of my business.
Truth: The reality is, helping your loved one or friend reduce the risk of falling is a caring act that can help him or her maintain the highest degree of independence possible. Yes, it is ultimately up to the senior him- or herself, but you can be a cheerleader for removing hazards in the home, finding a fall protection program - in short, working on risk factors that something can be doneabout. Let the person know that you fully support this important goal.
Myth: I don't really have anyone elderly in my family, so a medical alert system probably would be useless.
Truth: With LifeFone's easy-to-access bracelet, they help in any sort of emergency.
Myth: If I am concerned about falls, I shouldn't mention it to family members or my healthcare provider - they might just try to slow me down!
Fact: Fall prevention is a team effort...so make it the subject of conversation with your doctor, family, and anyone else who is in a position to help. People who care about you want to help you reduce your risk.
Still not convinced? Read a few of these LifeFone reviews from actual LifeFone customers:
"I had LifeFone for 3 days. I went into congestive heart failure. I was having a very hard time breathing. So much so, that I was unable to dial 911 and tell them where to go. I pushed the button for LifeFone and the paramedics showed up soon thereafter, otherwise we wouldn't be having this conversation." - Dick Butler, Mableton, GA
"I was alone when I found that I was having difficulties breathing. I pressed the LifeFone button - within seconds a calm, quiet voice called and asked if I was all right. All my family was called promptly! My thanks for your rapid, efficient response to my call for help." -J. Herman M.D.Hewlett, NY
"One month ago today I fell in my house, I pressed the LifeFone and my life was saved. Without you I would not be here.... there is no way I can tell you how grateful I am to you and how efficient your operation is -- Thank You." - K. Parker Miami, FL
