As a child, today I want to introduce personal emergency alert device to everyone. Why?
We are growing up year by year, but our parents are getting older year by year, and our physical health is worse than when we were young. Most people have to face various problems when they are old: unable to live alone; easy to fall; weakened resistance and easy to get sick; facing the threat of high blood pressure, heart disease, Alzheimer's and other major diseases.
Although these diseases are irresistible, we can take some measures: for example, ask caregivers and babysitters to take charge of the daily life of the elderly; strengthen the companionship of the elderly in daily life; pay attention to all corners of the home, and be careful if there are sharp objects...
However, if you spend a lot of money on hiring a babysitter every month, the expenditure in one year is not a small amount. For those elderly people who live alone, those who live on meager pensions are very unfriendly; and some children go out to work and often don't have time to go home to visit their parents. Instead of spending a lot of money, it is better to buy medical alarm equipment for them. In this way, children can be at ease when they are away, and there is no need to worry about their parents being unable to get help.
Why do I say that? Below are some common questions about medical alerts.
What is a medical alert system?
The medical alert system is a device that presses a button to get help in an emergency. The traditional medical alarm system consists of a wearable pendant and a base station connected to a telephone line. However, more businesses have built this technology into mobile devices and smart watches. Although most medical alert systems require you to press a button when you need help, some new technologies continuously monitor your physical condition and automatically seek help after an emergency medical situation occurs.
How does the medical alert system maintain the independence of the elderly?
Considering the following report issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in addition to major diseases, falls may be the biggest threat to the elderly, with long-term physical and psychological effects. With this in mind, responding quickly to emergencies is the best way to alleviate the fall data of the elderly. The medical alert system is equivalent to a safety net, which enables your loved one to seek help by simply pressing a button.
According to data from the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), 86% of senior citizens want to live at home for a long time. The ability to maintain independence is one of the important factors that affect the quality of life of the elderly. The medical alert system helps to achieve this goal and enables the elderly to enjoy their twilight years.
How does the personal emergency alert device work?
The process is simple: if you fall, please don't panic, just press the button, the receiver will emit the sound you set before, and your family or carer will come to help you. Some systems can even detect whether you have fallen and notify the medical center.
Do pendants need to be worn all the time?
Of course you can choose to take off the pendant, but it is best to keep it on. Rest assured, the pendant is waterproof, so it can be worn in the shower. But many elderly people worry about the stigma of the medical alert system and rarely wear it. Fortunately, some companies are developing medical alarm smart watches. These watches are simple in design and do not look like traditional medical alarm systems that are accepted by some elderly people.
