Regardless of whether you're young or old, the bathroom is typically one of the most dangerous rooms in the house. The danger does rise as the individual ages because the bathroom in many times is a very small space that is prone to slippery floors and surfaces.
Picturing your loved one lying on the floor following a stroke or a debilitating fall with no way of mobilizing their body to summon help is an image almost too hard to bear. Your parent should never have to experience such an event, and with the help of a senior alarm button they don't have to!
Medical alert systems provide senior citizens with extended independence within the comfort of their own homes. With help available at the click of a button, seniors can prolong moving in with a loved one or into assisted living by simply wearing a medical alert bracelet or pendant.
With more seniors every year choosing to live at home, medical alarm systems are increasingly popular. These medical alarm systems are one of the most important elements of ensuring the safety and good health of seniors who aren't ready for a nursing home or assisted living facility.
There have been hundreds of medical alert systems reviews posted on the Internet and published in magazines, and they all use various criteria to rate the quality of medical alert systems. The reviews often have several things in common that they all look for, including the quality of the monitoring center, the cost of service, the length of a service contract, and the quality of the equipment used. At LifeFone, we are in the top ranks for all of these criteria, making us a leader in the medical alarms industry.
A reliable medical alert system installed in the home of a loved one can make an incredible difference in their lives. In fact, it can be the difference between life and death for many of today's seniors.
