Simply – a Medical Guardian medical alert device gives senior citizens the independence they want and the dignity they deserve.
Independence is a prevailing concern for most senior citizens. After a long life of gaining experience and knowledge, the elderly do not want to lose their autonomy due to medical risks or concerns. However, age and health conditions can make independent living an anxiety-filled and even life-threatening situation.
The Risks of Independent Living
The Centers for Disease Control reports that one in three seniors will experience a dangerous fall every year – and these seniors are two times as likely to suffer a repeat fall.
Immediate help after a fall is crucial, as every hour spent waiting for help decreases one’s chances of recovery. For many seniors, the fear of a debilitating fall causes them to limit their activities. By decreasing their mobility and physical abilities, seniors actually increase their risk of a fall. This vicious circle of worry and reduced movement can lead to depression, illness, and a shortened life span.
Beyond devastating falls, many seniors are at risk of imminent medical crises that require immediate help. If living alone, or alone for multiple hours a day, senior citizens need a reliable emergency plan.
Security and Safety
Providing a dependable solution for seniors who wish to live an independent life in their own home, Medical Guardian ensures that help is only a push of a button away. Awarded an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, Medical Guardian is recommended by doctors, hospitals, and caregiver nationwide.
Anxiety about a fall or a medical emergency can cause stress within the extended family, and greatly diminish one’s quality of life. With Medical Guardian, seniors can feel safe and secure, while still maintaining their freedom and accustomed lifestyle.
The Medical Guardian can be worn around the wrist or the neck, allowing for ease of carry. The device is simple-to-use, intuitive, and 100% waterproof. In the event of a fall or medical emergency, the touch of a button immediately connects you to a 100% U.S.-based response center. All highly trained responders are 911 certified and have access to your medical history. With the use of information you provide when you sign up with Medical Guardian, responders are able to contact your friends or family, provide critical information to emergency personnel, and get you to your preferred doctor or hospital. A two-way speaker in the Medical Guardian device allows responders to communicate, assess the situation, and send for help. In the event you cannot respond, emergency help will be immediately contacted.
Providing safety and security beyond the scope of medical emergencies, the Medical Guardian can be used to contact help in the event of fires or break-ins. A touch of the button can call for immediate help, allowing for increased confidence and security. With Medical Guardian, limited mobility or health concerns no longer relegate seniors to being dependent on others.
Peace of Mind
The life-saving abilities of the Medical Guardian medical alert device cannot be understated, but almost as beneficial is the peace of mind it provides for both senior citizens and their families. Aging and the limitations of physical abilities are a difficult situation for families and can lead to worry, fear, and frustration. Releasing you and your family from these discomforts, Medical Guardian allows seniors to maintain their independence with confidence, and provides assurance to families of the safety of their loved ones.

Medical Alert vs. Assisted Living Facility
Many senior citizens lose physical ability as they age and become at much higher risk of life-threatening falls or health crises. As they lose confidence about their ability to get help if they are in need, many seniors, often under the advice of family members, consider moving to an assisted care facility. However, studies have found that many seniors, upon entering such a facility, experience a decline in health, less physical activity, are at a greater risk of damaging falls, and have an increase in mental distress. Research has also found that seniors who are able to maintain an active lifestyle while living at home live on average five years longer than those who reside in assisted living facilities. Additionally, a typical assisted living facility costs an average of $3,000 a month, adding a considerable financial burden to seniors and their families.
The ideal solution for seniors is a medical alert system that allows the elderly to remain living in their own homes, to avoid these costly assisted living facilities.
Medical Guardian is a top rated medical alert systems company, providing the highest quality of safety and security for the elderly. With Medical Guardian, thousands of seniors across the nation now enjoy a restored sense of independence, and their loved ones can find peace of mind in knowing that help is just the push of a button away.
