Seniors and those with illnesses or other health concerns who are living at home face a great number of risks. This can include everything from devastating falls to heart attacks or strokes, to being at an increased risk of fires, home burglaries and scams. However, personal emergency services can help to reduce the devastating consequences of these risks and in many cases, they can save lives.
Personal emergency services are devices that connect to a 24-hour monitoring service. In the event that an emergency happens, such as if a senior falls or a fire breaks out, they simply press the button on the transmitter (which is generally worn as a necklace or bracelet/wristband) and the appropriate emergency services are then sent on their way. People can speak to emergency services regardless of where they are in the house and help will be sent on their way regardless of whether they are able to communicate.
In the event that someone falls, has a heart attack, stroke or another emergency happens while at home but they are unable to call for help, personal emergency services can mean the difference between life and death.
You do not want to leave your loved ones in a vulnerable situation. In the event that an emergency happens, the devastating consequences are minimized since the proper authorities can be there much sooner. Time is of the essence when it comes to emergencies.
While caregivers and other family members want to know that their loved ones are safe, the reality is that you can’t be present all the time. Personal emergency services are not only a valuable tool for the person receiving them, but it can also provide a sense of relief to their caregivers, too. They can feel a sense of reassurance knowing that their loved ones are not in any danger when on their own.
In some cases, you will have the option to add additional services to your plan. This might include a wake-up call, check-ins or medication reminders. This service is invaluable in promoting independence for as long as possible.
In addition to personal emergency services, seniors and those with chronic illnesses can also benefit from home health care services. C-Care Health Services offers a variety of affordable, personalized and high-quality services. Contact us today for more.
