Labor Day Gifts Your Aging Parents Will Love

Updated 8/7/15 11:24am | The summer is winding down, the grandkids are starting school—you may even consider brushing up on autumn activities recommended by Alert1. But before you “fall back” into your autumn routine, it’s time for the last holiday of summer: Labor Day.  You’ve probably already made your plans to have cookouts, go swimming, go hiking, and spend time with friends and family. But I’ll bet you’ve forgotten what could be the most important addition to your weekend festivities: a mobile medical alert system. You get to spend Labor Day with your mom, but are you able to be with her 24/7?

You might not think of Labor Day weekend as the time to give gifts, but after all, what is the holiday really about? Labor Day is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. Your loved ones have worked for many years to create a better life for you and your family. Take this holiday as an opportunity to thank them for all of their hard work! 

The Kelsi mobile medical alert is the perfect companion on weekend adventures. Its unlimited range means your mother can take it anywhere! If she ever needs help for any reason, she just needs to press the help button. Within seconds, a friendly voice will come on the line from the Alert1 Command Center. We are available 24/7 to help you! Our US-based operators undergo rigorous training so that they will be able to help you with any situation mom might find herself in. We will send her help quickly because we know every moment counts in an emergency. She will never be alone with Alert1 by her side – we stay on the line with her until help arrives.

I've never thought about giving gifts on labor day before, but I'm sure my parents would love the surprise!

I never would have thought about giving Labor Day gifts, but I have to admit that I'm totally into it. I will definitely take a look at your mobile medical alert. My parents love to take their RV across the country and I do worry about them. We're all getting together on Labor Day, and I will show them your product - I think it will be perfect for them!
