When you think of someone using a medical alert device, what’s the first thing that you think of? Is it someone older or someone young?
We’ve all seen the old commercial with a woman that’s fallen and can’t get up. Unfortunately, falls are a very real danger for many seniors. Also unfortunately, this commercial has given many people a mental picture of what they think and medical alert device user should look like.
One of the things that Midnight Sun Home Care wants to do is remove the stigma and stereotypes surrounding wearable emergency alert devices.
Medical alert devices are not just for the elderly. Of course, an alert device can ease the minds of caregivers and their aging loved ones and they are our primary users.
There are so many other people that can benefit from the use of one of Lifeline’s many solutions. Lifeline can also benefit people living with:
- Limited mobility
- Intellectual development disorders
- Visual or hearing impairments
- Fall risks
- Heart disease
- Post-operative recovery
No deserves to live their life in fear and that’s why we offer Philip’s Lifeline.
For those that are at risk of falling or needing extra help sometimes the fear of an emergency brings greater consequences than an actual emergency. This leads them to limit their physical activity. Limiting their activities often increases stress levels as well as decreasing happiness by eliminating some activities they used to enjoy.
One of the easiest ways to avoid this is to use the Lifeline alert on a regular basis. It’s common practice to test smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors on a monthly basis. There’s no reason you shouldn’t do the same with medical alert devices. This test run will put them in contact with the Call Center and let them know that the Lifeline associates are always there and happy to receive their calls.
