The only thing constant in life is change. Certain factors help us determine how and why we change, but most of the time we make a change because we learned the hard way the first time. If you or a loved one is living independently and is in need of an emergency alert system, do not wait for an accident to happen to make a change. Be proactive and get Life Alert today.
If you are unsure if it is the right time to purchase a medical alert system, consider these top 3 situations as a sign for change.
1. A Fall Has Occurred:
Did you know that 1 in 3 U.S. adults aged 65 and up falls every year ? For those of you who have fallen or know of a loved one who has, it is imperative that immediate care is easily accessible, especially before any damage related to a fall becomes debilitating. The best way to guarantee medical help will arrive quickly, 24/7, is with Life Alert.
2. Help Is Nowhere Nearby:
Having our independence and living alone can be very rewarding. As adults, we believe we are able to care for ourselves without the help from another. But should an accident occur, would you have family, friends or neighbors close by to check on you? 62% of fall victims who don’t receive help within an hour won’t be able to live independently after recovery . Having a medical alert system, such as Life Alert, can make a huge difference in the overall life of a fall victim, because a simple press of a button will ensure you get help, fast—possibly reducing the chance of any permanent injury setting in.
3. You Worry Often:
You have enough on your plate as is: work, kids, soccer practice…the list goes on. No matter how busy things get, there is always a part of you throughout the day that worries about grandma, mother or father. The guilt of not being able to be there as often as you’d like can be unbearable. Wouldn’t you like to be able to eliminate such worry with a simple purchase? Life Alert’s medical alert system can bring comfort and confidence for both you and your elderly loved one.
Sometimes people may say, “There is no simple solution”, but we are here to argue that. Life Alert can be the simple solution you and your loved one have been searching for. Worry free, independence can be life altering, for both of you. Don’t wait to make a change; live your life to its fullest .You can be safe with one touch of a button thanks to Life Alert.
