Falls might seem commonplace with age, but the grave reality is that falls are the now the leading cause of injury death, and the most common cause of nonfatal injuries, often leading to chronic pain or disability. Research has shown that:
50% of people aged 75+ fall at home
2x more likely to fall again if fallen once before
80% of falls occur in the bathroom
70% of older adults will need long-term care
We know that Senior Living Communities already offer their residents a variety of choices that help to not only keep them healthy, but to also improve their overall quality of life. A Medical Guardian medical alert device is a means to reach the same end goals. With 24/7 monitoring services courtesy of Medical Guardian’s top-rated monitoring center, your residents will never have to suffer the pain or indignity of being stuck on the ground for an extended period of time before being able to get the help they need.
When paired with the services that seniors are already receiving through your community, a medical alert system is a proven way to keep aging adults living independently, longer. In addition to Medical Guardian’s round-the-clock monitoring services, users also have the ability to add emergency contacts to their account to ensure that caregivers and concerned parties can get updates about accidents and emergencies in real time.
That means that users can add someone from your staff to their call list, ensuring that your staff will always remain in the know about your residents’ health. A medical alert system provides both users and caregivers with a cost-effective way to have access to constant care.
Our main goal is providing seniors with the safety net they need in order to feel secure at home as they age.
