Maryland, the wealthiest state in the nation, has strong ties to the ocean and sailing. Capital city Annapolis is home to the United States Naval Academy and is known as the sailing capital of the world. The Chesapeake Bay state is also the nation’s largest producer of blue crabs and soft shell crabs.
Giving part of their state to create Washington D.C., as well as giving America’s pastime the legendary Babe Ruth, Maryland has earned its place as a vital American state.
Maryland’s weather varies greatly depending on the location within the state. The low-lying coastal areas experience summer humidity and mild winters. Though somewhat at risk of tropical storms, Maryland is generally protected from hurricanes by the coastline of North Carolina. Further west, in the mountainous areas of the state, winters are more severe with greater levels of snowstorms.
With a rising senior population and limited availability in the assisted living marketplace, Maryland seniors worry about their safety while living alone, or being alone for many hours a day.

The Dangers for Senior Citizens Living Alone
Many seniors wait until it is too late to consider the dangers of living alone, or being alone for several hours a day. In today’s world of smartphones, tablets, and Facebook it is hard to imagine being disconnected and unable to reach help. Unfortunately, for many seniors, this is something that can easily happen.
The CDC reports that one in every three seniors over 65 will experience at least one fall a year, and those that do fall are twice as likely to sufferer another fall within the year. Falls are the leading cause of injury deaths in seniors, with traumatic brain injuries from these falls accounting for 46% of deaths.
The longer you spend injured and alone, the lower your chances are for recovery. In the most extreme cases, being left alone for an extended period of time after a fall can lead to death.
With Medical Guardian you can protect yourself from the trauma and danger of being left alone during an emergency. Help is never more than a push of a button away. Enjoy a worry-free life, with Medical Guardian’s medical alarm system.
