What is the first alert for seniors or their loved ones to notice that should get them thinking about a medical alert system? When someone has already experienced a fall, whether major or minor, a medical alert device (for at least around the house) is strongly recommended.
Getting a medical alert system can be an overwhelming process. If you’re reading this, that’s probably no surprise to you. Luckily, once you’ve picked a company to go with, connecting and using a medical alert is pretty easy.
Systems that work around the house are by far the easiest to connect and use. Mobile GPS medical alert devices are also simple to operate. If you still have a home telephone service, there are medical alerts that can connect to a phone outlet inside your home. If you don’t have a landline or prefer an easier setup, choose a medical alert system that works without a landline.
When you receive your medical alert system, you’ll be able to do trial runs to make sure that everything is working and that you understand how it all works. You can test your help button from all different parts of the house and yard to give you assurance that you’ll be protected inside and outside of your home. Here are some things you can expect soon after receiving and connecting your new medical alert system.
The first alert for seniors using a home medical alert to notice will be the medical alert base unit announcing that it is calling for help. Following that announcement, a live operator will answer over the base station and ask if you need help. When you first alert the response center during the installation of your system, you will tell them that you are running a test. In the event of a real emergency, whether you’re able to respond or not, the operator will still be able to send help.
Testing a GPS medical alert will work in a similar way. When you’re sending the first alert time using a GPS medical alert device, the operator will be able to speak to you and provide the GPS coordinates from where the signal came in.
The setup process for a medical alert system can be completed in minutes. And with the help of a great customer support team like we have here at Senior Safety, you can call if you happened to find yourself in a jam.
