As seniors age, their independence can feel under threat by family discussions about assisted living or moving in with a loved one. A lot of seniors have spent many years in their house or apartment, have worked hard to make it a home and genuinely love living there. So these feelings are perfectly natural. Big changes like these are often met with hesitation and require time to adjust.
Unfortunately, sometimes conversations about medical alert systems are met with the same hesitation. That’s unfortunate because these systems are the perfect tool for keeping your independence longer. They keep you safe in the home you love and help you live there longer. They are a preventative step to make sure that IF you have a big fall or emergency you are able to get help. By getting help quickly, you’ll increase your chances of a full recovery and help prolong or prevent the need for assisted living later in life. While our Senior Safety team certainly understands resistance to change, we also understand how important these systems are to your ongoing health & happiness while living in that home that you love!
