The National Council on Aging (NCOA) says that for older Americans falls are the leading causes of fatal and non-fatal injuries. Every 11 seconds an older adult is treated in an ER for a fall and every 19 minutes a senior dies from a fall!
These horrible statistics can be changed with a medical alert device. While they don’t prevent a fall from occurring, it could at least prevent further damage or death.
Medical alert devices offer safety and the ability to get immediate assistance, which is so important, especially for seniors who live alone.
The medical alert devices we offer are used to enhance the care we provide giving seniors the freedom and independence to go anywhere with confidence. All of our devices are simple, safe and easy to use.
Our most advanced device is the Personal Emergency Response System with GPS and Fall Detection. It is used to track motion and we are alerted if the device senses a lack of activity that may signal a health emergency. This device also detects when a person wearing the device falls and automatically calls them to ensure they are alright. The devices GPS allows us to locate the person if they are unable to call out or do not answer a call. For device features and additional information, click here.
When a senior falls there is not always a chance for them to seek help, our devices provide the assistance they need to feel safe and independent whether at home or out in the community.
