Arizona’s Medical Alert And Medical Alarms

October 13, 2010

Falling is a fact of life. As we age, falls are more prevalent. Often during a fall, a person is not injured. However, they do not have the strength to get back up. This becomes a problem to seniors living alone. If help is immediately available, the only injuries assessed may be scratches and bruises. After several hours and even a day or two, dehydration sets in and strokes and other injuries become more prevalent.  This is especially the case in Arizona where temperatures can reach 120 degrees. It is extremely important that a person receives help immediately.

Arizona has one of the largest senior populations in the country and it is constantly growing. More and more, Arizona’s elderly population wants to remain independent and avoid assisted living and nursing homes. Medical alerts are here to help. With a medical alert, the senior gets their choice of a necklace, bracelet or belt clip and is able to press it as soon as they need help.  This could be inside or outside their house (in Arizona this is important because outside the temperatures are traumatic to the elderly and the frail).  The medical alert and alarm devices are water resistant and therefore can provide confidence and peace-of-mind to seniors during all of their daily activities.

Preventing falls is not as hard as it seems. If you ever feel unsteady, take a seat instead of trying to make it to your next destination. Also, installing grab bars around steps and in the shower is extremely important. There are many more ways to prevent falls the below link will provide guidance.
