This startling statistic is a concern for most senior citizens living alone or who spend time alone at home. Fortunately, this concern can be greatly alleviated and the likelihood of surviving a slip, fall or other medical emergency can be greatly reduced by the use of a medical alert system (otherwise referred to as Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) or a medical alarm).

A recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia, revealed that one in three senior citizens will experience a fall every year. Another study conducted by the AARP on medical alert systems has shown that seniors are able to live on their own for longer than otherwise, when they have a medical alert device.

These seniors are able remain in their own homes as opposed to having to move to assisted living or nursing facilities, which provides for a better quality of life. The freedom and peace of mind that the personal emergency medical response systems provides, enables them to retain an active lifestyle, without the fear of falling or suffering a medical emergency and not being able to get help.

The fast response that a medical alert device provides also greatly reduces the likelihood of long-term health issues, should an emergency occur. Without a medical alarm, an injured senior who suffered an emergency would have no other way to call for help.  thereby increasing the risk and severity of long term injury. Whether you are considering a medical alert system for yourself or a loved one, help is always available at the touch of a button.

Nobody ever plans for an accident. Having a personal emergency response system can dramatically improve the quality of life for seniors by providing them the peace of mind to live happier , healthier and free from the fear of being alone at a time of crisis.
