As people grow older, their bodies age, and they lose balance, mobility, and coordination. Whether living with age-related illnesses or simply contending with the natural aging process, every senior needs an extra degree of care. Our LifeGard medical alert systems are designed to give seniors and their loved ones peace of mind and around-the-clock security.
The Need For Protection
The costs of growing older can seem unbearable. Sadly, few retirement budgets allow for coordinated, around-the-clock care for those who have a hard time climbing stairs, getting into and out of the bath by themselves, or safely managing their cooking activities. If you or your elderly loved one is currently struggling with the consequences of aging yet trying to maintain independence, autonomy, and financial security, it’s important to have a reliable way to get help when it’s needed.
One of the greatest risks is a serious physical injury or experiencing a major medical accident while lacking access to outside medical support. Whether slipping and falling in the bathroom or exhibiting the early symptoms of a stroke, professional medical help can be just a push of a button away. The ProTec Medical Alert System includes a waterproof, portable panic button that seniors wear 24/7. This system allows users to alert ProTec’s monitoring professionals when medical emergencies or accidents occur. The necessary medical authorities are also immediately alerted and dispatched.
Ease of Use
Nearly all of the medical emergencies that aging adults face have better outcomes when treatment is received early on. Heart attacks, stroke, accidental overdose, and broken hips have the best prognoses when timely interventions are made. Nothing is worse than being hurt, alone, and unable to get help.
The LifeGard medical alert system limits the fear, physical pain, and emotional suffering that elderly adults experience by ensuring that they’re never truly on their own. With LifeGard, seniors can connect with emergency first responders even if they’re unable to physically reach their phones. Best of all, the LifeGard includes special features for ensuring that each person gets the targeted and needs-specific care they require, including:
- Door decals that show the exact location of the patient’s medications.
- Comfortable and secure-fitting wristbands or necklaces for easy access.
- A wireless panic button.
When falls and slips happen, seniors can sometimes spend hours on the ground where they’re unable to get up or seek help. You can make sure that this never happens to you or your loved one.
