Medical Alarms Save LivesOctober 11th, 2017 | by Provision Home | in Security Advice News and Blog Articles
Studies have shown that medical alert systems save lives. If someone can receive medical assistance within one hour following an emergency, there is a 90 percent chance of maintaining independence after the emergency. By using a personal help button, a medical alert system can ensure that you or your loved one gets help when it is most needed.
There are many great benefits to a medical alert system, and they include: affordability – with rising costs of nursing homes and medical care, an alert system can provide a cost-effective option for seniors and those with medical conditions. The medical alert system also allows a greater sense of privacy and independence, as it can allow a senior to stay in their own home for far longer.
For someone living with a medical condition independently, being alone can be frightening in the event of a medical event. Having a medical alarm available can provide comfort to both the person living there, and to their loved ones, knowing that it is there if they need it. Having it available also reduces the need to people to check on them regularly, which can be a hassle and can hamper their lifestyle.
Because medical monitoring is available 24 hours per day and 7 days per week, emergency assistance can be there to help as quickly as possible once alerted. Many systems also offer live two-way voice communication, meaning that if the alert button is pressed, a medically trained personnel can answer immediately to help out with the situation until help arrives physically to the location.
Above all, a medical alert system provides a method of saving one’s independence, while also providing safety and peach of mind in case of an issue. The systems are easy to set up and affordable, and can provide additional time for the user to be independent and maintain their lifestyle, rather than being brought to a care facility before they are ready.
