Everywhere in Arkansas, seniors who wish to keep living independently can count on Alert1® medical alert systems to work in their nieghborhoods. Arkansas has the 10th highest number of people over 65, according to the Arkansas Division of Aging and Adult Services, and Alert1's medical alert devices can provide protection for those who want to age independently. Many seniors rely on family or professional caregivers to help out around the house, but they may sometimes find themselves alone. If an elderly individual in Northwest Arkansas or anywhere in the Natural State should slip and fall or otherwise need help, but cannot reach a phone, a wearable medical alert necklace can be key to contacting emergency services right away. Caregivers of seniors aging in place can install medical alarm systems in the homes of their loved ones to provide extra security when the older individuals are alone.
