A beautiful and harsh desert landscape, Arizona is a state of heat, sun, and rich culture. When venturing out or even staying home, care must be taken to ensure you stay well hydrated and don’t overheat.
Heat is more detrimental for senior citizens than to those under 65. Decreased circulation, less efficient sweat glands, and even medications can make seniors more susceptible to very serious health conditions like heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Why Do I Need a Medical Alert System?
A leading concern for seniors is maintaining their independence, while still being safe. Falls and medical emergencies while home alone can become a life and death situation for the elderly. Fear of being alone during a crisis often forces seniors into the difficult decision of moving into an assisted living facility or nursing home.
A medical alert system is a low-cost answer to both independence and safety during an emergency. Always there when you need it, the Medical Guardian alert device is worn on the belt, around the neck, or on the wrist. Because the alert device is 100% waterproof, it can be worn in the bath or shower, a particularly high-risk area for seniors.
In the event of an emergency, simply press the button on the device and be immediately connected to our emergency response center. Our responders are trained and certified to evaluate your needs, contact your friends or family, and are able to dispatch your local emergency services.
For Arizona seniors, a medical alarm is an effective means of maintaining your independence, home, and comfort – but also have 24-hours a day/7 days a week safety monitoring.
Easy to Set Up, Easy to Use
Getting started couldn’t be easier. Operators are available around the clock and ready to talk with you and determine your needs. Your Medical Guardian alert device and “home base” device are mailed directly to your home with instructions for the simple set up. The home base is plugged into the wall and into a phone jack – and that is it. Push the connect button to let the response center know you are set up and your monitoring has begun.
With Medical Guardian, safety can travel with you. If you move, go on vacation, or are visiting friends, simple bring your home base and device with you. Plug it in, let the response center know your new location, and you are covered nationwide.
Seniors across the country are enjoying the peace-of-mind and security of the Medical Guardian medical alert system.
