The medical alert system is really simple for anyone to use. Wear a button on your wrist or around our neck. If you need assistance and cannot reach a phone, simply press the button. A responder will answer the call and ask you who you would like to contact. If you are unable to respond, an emergency call will be placed for you.
What is a Medical Alert System?
Medical Alert Myrtle Beach provides top rated medical alert systems, also referred to as “life lines” for the elderly. Thousands of American seniors now enjoy a restored sense of independence, and their loved ones are comforted with the knowledge that help is always just the push of a button away. A medical alert system consists of a med alert button that is worn conveniently on the wrist or around the neck. When pressed, the button sends a wireless signal to a base station in the house that notifies our monitoring center of an emergency. Within seconds, an operator will come over the two way speaker and send emergency help if needed.
Do I Need a Medical Alarm?
If you live alone or spend considerable time alone, you will want to consider a medical alarm system. If you are 65 and older this is especially important. According to a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control, 1 in 3 senior citizens experience a fall every year, and those seniors are now more than twice as likely to fall again.
Anxiety about falling at home or being left for long periods unassisted diminishes quality of life. Fear of falling causes many seniors to limit their activities and restrict their movement, leading to reduced mobility and physical fitness and increases the actual risk of falling. A medical alert service will allow you to enjoy living independently at home with the peace of mind in knowing that should you fall, help is always available at the push of a button.
Advantages of Medical Alert Systems
A study done by the AARP on medical alert systems has shown that seniors who purchase a medic alert system stay living independently at home 5-6 years longer than a senior who does not wear the med alert button. These seniors are able remain in their own homes, where in many cases they have lived most of their lives, and retain an active lifestyle, free from fear of falling and being unable to get help.
The hour after a medical emergency takes place is known as the “golden hour”, a window of time where it is vital to get help quickly to avoid long-term health issues. Seniors that don’t have a medical alarm have no way to quickly summon help in an emergency. With a medical alert system, however, emergency help is always available and protection is guaranteed for you and your loved ones.
Having a medical alert response system enables a life free from fear and increases quality of life. This has a dramatic effect on seniors’ mental and physical health and well being.
