According to the Administration on Aging,
about 28% of seniors live alone. Not all seniors have somebody to care for
them, so who comes to their aid during an accident? Slips and falls happen unexpectedly,
so it's important to be ready for an emergency at any time. This is when a
medical alert comes into play.
Seniors should consider medical alert systems because they help them stay
independent and safe. Medical alerts allow independent seniors to live life to
the fullest with peace of mind.
Medical Alerts Keep Independent Seniors in Their Lifelong Home
Would you want to leave the home you have
lived in for years? Probably not. But it's common for family members to send
their aging loved ones to assisted living. This doesn't have to be the case if
you have a medical alert. Medical alerts can help you live a longer and happier
life because you will:
- Age in place in your lifelong home.
Aging in place means to stay in your home as long as possible. A medical alert
ensures that you are always protected, and can keep living peacefully at home.
- Avoid the cost of assisted living. Assisted
living is one of the most expensive alternatives when you age. Plus, most
seniors don't like the idea of living among strangers in an unfamiliar place.
Living at home with a medical alert is a great way to save money while you age
in place in the comfort of your home.
- Create a senior-friendly home. A
medical alert is always by your side, but you must still prevent accidents.
That's why it's important to have a have a senior-friendly home.
The last thing you want is for an accident to occur. A medical alert will
motivate you to do small renovations at home. This makes your home safe and keeps
