Mom and Dad are happy aging in place. They’ve been in
their home for many years, and they don’t want to move. Now that they’re
getting older, you worry about their well-being. Getting them each a medical
alert device is the perfect solution. They can stay independent, and you’ll
know that they’re always safe. However, you may be worried about the inconvenience
and expense of two medical alerts. Fortunately, Alert1 is here to ease your mind. In this
article, we cover 4 common misconceptions about getting a medical alert for
1. “They Will Need Their Own System”
This is the most common misconception people have. It’s reasonable
to think that you might need to purchase two medical alert devices for two
this isn’t the case with Alert1 medical alert devices.
If you plan on buying a medical alert for Mom and Dad,
you won’t need to purchase two separate systems. Alert1 offers medical alert
devices that can monitor two people at one single location. These devices are
our Home Medical Alert and Home Fall Detection System. Each system includes a base station and a
Mom and Dad can share one base station and have their own
help button. This minimizes confusion about whose button goes to which base
station. Your parents will get immediate help without any problems.
2. “Mom and Dad Live Together, They Don’t Need Medical Alerts”
“If Mom and Dad live together, they won’t need medical
alerts. They’ll have each other if anything happens.” But what happens when Mom
goes out to visit her friend or when Dad runs out to the store? They may live
together, but they won’t always be at home together.
When they aren’t together, an accident could happen. Mom could
fall and hurt herself gardening while Dad is out buying groceries. Dad might
slip in the tub while Mom is playing bridge. If this were to happen, Mom or Dad
would be left without help for hours.
With a medical alert, there’s no need to wait for hours. Mom
or Dad can get immediate help by pressing their help button. When each person
has their own medical alert, they will have extra peace of mind when they
Mom and Dad will have their own Circle of Care with
Alert1. The Circle of Care is Mom and Dad’s
emergency call list. When
an accident occurs, those listed in their Circle of Care will be notified immediately.
Mom or Dad will be contacted straight-away if something happens to the other.
After listing each other as their contact, Mom and Dad will
have space for two more people in their Circle of Care. That means you and
another loved one will always be in the loop when it comes to their safety. Let
Alert1 give your family peace of mind.
3. “Buying Two Means Double the Price”
Buying one medical alert device seems financially doable,
but you’re not sure if you can afford to pay for two. Getting two devices
That’s why Alert1 offers competitive pricing – especially
for two users. After purchasing a
medical alert device of your choice, you can add another device for 50% off.
This means both Mom and Dad will be covered at all times without breaking your
bank. At Alert1, our number one priority is keeping Mom and Dad safe.
4. “They Have to Live Together to Share Medical Alerts”
So you want to buy medical alerts for two, but it’s not
for Mom and Dad. Perhaps one is for your great aunt and the other is for your
mother-in-law. If they don’t live together, they won’t be able to share a base station.
Will they still qualify for the second user discount?
The answer is “Yes”! If you’re purchasing medical alert
devices for two people who don’t live together, consider Alert1. We offer a Mobile Medical Alert System and a Mobile Fall Detection System. They’re both mobile devices that can be
taken anywhere, anytime. When you purchase two mobile medical alerts, you’ll
receive 50% off the second user.
Because our mobile devices aren’t connected to a home
base station, your loved ones don’t need to live together. They will each
receive a mobile medical alert to use wherever they go. You can rest assured that
both your loved ones are safe without paying too much.
