The Medical Alert Systems of 2021

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one out of every four older adults falls every year. Of those falls, 20 percent are serious, resulting in a broken bone, head trauma, or a similar injury. And, falling once doubles one’s chance of experiencing another fall in the future. There’s no way to completely prevent falls, so it’s crucial to provide immediate help when a fall does happen. This is where home medical alert systems can be invaluable.

There’s no way to completely prevent falls, but there are things seniors and their families can do to make one safer at home. One such action families can take is purchasing a medical alert system.
