Celebrating All Our Veterans this Memorial Day.
by Heidi Nestor, Writer and Editor,
This Memorial Day remember all venerable loved
ones, especially the seniors who are still with us, by getting them Life
In a home emergency, such as a fall, seizure, heart
attack, stroke or other serious illness, a senior may not be able to
reach the telephone, and can lie on the floor for hours or days
disconnected from any help. But
one push of the help button on the lightweight pendant activates Life
Alert’s patented 2-way communication monitor
allowing emergency help to
be sent in just like Armed Forces storming the beaches at Normandy.
nation that has fought hard for its freedoms shouldn’t have to
relinquish independence when reaching retirement age. In a survey
taken by Nielsen International Research, 87% of Life Alert members said
that Life Alert's protection is a main or important factor in their
decision to keep living at home rather than going to a retirement
institution. Life Alert’s
medical alert system gives
peace of mind to family members while providing emergency service to
their loved one when needed.
Life Alert provides seniors independence by allowing
them to remain in their own home. This is the kind of independence
fought for by our military men and women.
Alert’s Signature Medical Alert system is what put personal protection
on the map. The lightweight, water proof emergency button can
be worn on the wrist or as a pendant. So small and comfortable, it can
be tucked into a blouse or under a sleeve, and remain out of sight until
Life Alert’s focus is on Safety and Independence.
So Life Alert sends technicians
to different parts of the world to seek new innovative ways of
increasing and improving on emergency technology -- as seen with the
unique HELP shower button created exclusively by Life Alert.
This waterproof HELP BUTTON is specially designed for better
protection in the shower, bathtubs, bathroom, bedroom or any similar
location within your home.
Simply attach it somewhere low on a
wall or in the shower and if a fall occurs, just push the one
large, easily accessible, button to reach Life Alert’s Emergency
Monitoring Center. The HELP button has 2-way communication so you can
speak with a Life Alert Dispatcher and get HELP fast. Batteries last
up to 10 years and never need charging.
In addition, Life Alert owns and
operates their own CSAA Five Diamond and UL Certified Emergency Dispatch
Centers with a full training facility on-site.
Emergency dispatch managers spend up to a year of extensive
training. The size of their emergency staff per member is three (3)
times greater than a traditional security company.
Just as important, the Life Alert
dispatchers manage a crisis for the entire duration of the emergency and
stay on the line until you feel safe and taken care of.
They provide important medical
information to paramedics on the scene and contact the responsible
parties during the emergency and keep them updated.
Alert provides as many areas of coverage as there are military branches,
with four areas of protection so your elders, their home, and their
lifestyle can be as secure and mobile as a Yankee Doodle is dandy.
So this Memorial Day remember our fallen heroes by
appreciating the freedoms we have, but also honor your own family by
giving your elders the gift of independence; they protected you now it’s
your turn to protect them.
Get Life Alert protection and your elderly loved ones will appreciate
the freedom it brings and you’ll be grateful for the peace of mind it
