Knowledge and awareness are key to preventing fires. Your parents and loved ones continue to live on their own longer, are more self-sufficient, and can largely be in charge of their own lifestyles. Of course, that doesn’t stop you from being concerned about their safety, and making sure their home is as protected as it can be from fires. At LifeFone, safety is our priority.
With the aging population living a more independent lifestyle, often as their loved one, you become concerned about their safety. Mom and dad feel comfortable in their home, and don’t want any outside interference, even from their family. However, as their child, you would like them to take precautions to ensure their safety at home.
Do you wake up feeling tired even though you should have had a good night’s sleep? You may be suffering from sleep apnea, a disorder that causes you to stop breathing multiple times throughout the night. According to the National Institutes of Health, these lapses in breath can last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes.
We are all familiar with a lockbox when looking for or selling a home. Real estate agents hang them on homes that are for sale so buyers can come into a home while keeping the house secure. Unlike the flower pot or door mat, lockboxes keep your keys safe with a combination lock.
Most people think of personal medical devices and other similar systems as being something used by the elderly or the ill, but these devices can be literal life-savers for individuals who work alone at night. With a LifeFone Mobile Alert you and your family can be connected and safe whether you’re at home or working alone.
Caregiving for aging loved ones, for many, comes without warning. One day Mom or Dad is fine, the next, they have suffered a trip or fall or a surgery from which they need help with daily living tasks during recovery. When you’re thrown into this role, there are many steps you will need to take to help Mom and Dad adjust to your role as caregiver.

LifeFone, provider of medical alert systems, also offers a mobile alert response device that operates from an app you install on your smartphone. With this device, you can easily summon assistance if you’re in an emergency situation.
