Is it Time for a Senior Medical Alert System?

Have you put off investing in a senior medical alert system? You’re not alone — many people have different reasons why they put off making this investment. That said, waiting to invest in a senior medical alert system can result in serious injury. Let’s look at a few reasons why people procrastinate.

Reason #1: “It Will Never Happen to Me”

Although it’s natural to feel that you’ll never need to call for help, it’s important to be prepared in case something serious does occur. Think about your fire alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, or even the alarms you use to safeguard your home or car. Even though it’s unlikely that you’ll ever suffer a fire in your home, these tools can mean the difference between a burned cabinet and having to replace a lifetime of belongings. Senior medical alert systems are tools you can use to safeguard your physical health and well-being. While you may never fall, you can feel safe knowing that help will be on its way at the push of a button.

Reason #2: “I Might Get a Better Deal Tomorrow”

People put off many important expenditures in the hopes of getting a better deal in the future. This often results in the opposite outcome, particularly when they’re dealing with purchases such as oil changes, roof repairs, or routine HVAC maintenance. When the engine stops running on the freeway, the roof springs a leak during monsoon season, or the air conditioner dies on the hottest day of the year, you can end up paying a lot more money than you would have if you had planned ahead. Your health is invaluable, and there’s no wiggle room when it comes to keeping yourself well. Avoid a situation where you have to forfeit your live savings in an effort to save a few nickels.

Reason #3: “No One Else I Know Has One”

While no one else you know may have a senior medical alert device, remember that no two people are exactly alike. It’s much better to have support in the event that an emergency should occur — in some cases, your independence can be at stake if you don’t. Keep in mind that old adage about not jumping off a bridge: Instead of worrying about what others are doing, focus on keeping yourself safe instead.

Hidden Benefits of Senior Medical Alert Devices

Two of the best benefits of senior medical alert devices lie just beneath the surface. They’re intangible, but they’re worth their weight in gold. With a senior medical alert device, your worried family can relax because they’ll know that you’ve got things covered. In addition, you’ll feel safer, knowing that help is only a button’s press away.

Zig Ziglar sums it up best: “Expect the best. Prepare for the worst. Capitalize on what comes.” Having a senior medical alert device frees you to do just that.
