Personal Alert Systems for Communicating within the Home

Alert1 Senior Woman Standing Next To Table

Millions of accidents happen every year, but residents rarely think about how they can access emergency services from their homes. Tripping and falling are among the highest threats to seniors, but burns, cuts, and accidental poisonings can also happen in the safety of a person’s home. What’s more, catastrophic medical events, like heart attacks and pulmonary embolisms, are impossible to predict. If you’re spending most of your time in the house, odds are that’s where you’re going to experience a medical emergency.

Moreover, seniors living with family may find themselves in very large houses – places where it may be difficult to call for help in the case of an accident. If this is the case, you’ll want to ensure you have an emergency system in place to address the potential inability to call for help.

Using a Medical Alert Device to Communicate Accidents at Home

If you experience an accident at your family’s home, calling for help may be difficult. If this happens while you’re wearing an Alert1 pendant, however, fast and effective help is available at the push of a button. By pressing the help button, you will be connected to the Command Center. While they won’t be able to connect you to people in the house on the same line, you can very easily tell the operator to call someone else who is nearby. This is an easy way to receive help without calling an ambulance.

Of course, if your accident becomes an emergency, an Alert1 device will allow you to contact somebody nearby and call for medical help at the same time. All you need to do is communicate this to the operator.

To that end, if your home uses one of Alert1’s home landline-based systems, the; Voice Extender can be an invaluable tool. This product is ideal for large homes and can be used as a speakerphone for 2-way conversations. The system is compatible with both Home Medical Alert and the Home Fall Detection products, both of which are designed to keep you safe at home.

Alert1 Medication Reminder & Organizer
 While medical alert systems are great for communicating to other people, they can also be used to convey important information to seniors. The Automatic Medication Dispenser & Organizer includes an audible alarm that notifies patients of dosage times, reminding them to take important medications on a regular schedule. If you or your senior has trouble remembering to take medications, this tool is a great option. 

At-Home and On-the-Go Medical Alerts from Alert1

If your medical alert system needs exist in both your home and outside, you shouldn’t have to choose – or worse, pay for separate devices. With Alert1, you can access comprehensive emergency communication services both inside the house and while on the go. Users can wear their mobile devices while out and about, then switch it out for the home device when back safe and sound.

Whether your need for medical alert monitoring stays domestic or extends beyond the home, you shouldn’t have to choose where you can and cannot be safe. Flexibility is important for changing senior lifestyles, which is why Alert1 has multiple options to suit your personalized needs.
