Choosing a 24/7 Senior Medical Alert
Many people rightfully want a 24/7 senior medical alert. If you don’t have coverage all day and all night, what’s the point? There are many options when it comes to 24/7 senior medical alert systems that can fit a variety of situations. First, you have to ask yourself whether you will only be using the 24/7 senior medical alert at home. If you think you’ll need it outside of the home, no problem. There are cellular medical alerts that can be used at the store, while taking a walk through the neighborhood, visiting friends, etc.
Types of 24/7 Senior Medical Alert Systems
Prime Medical Alert has options that can cover any circumstance. We even offer 24/7 senior medical alerts that don’t require phone lines. All of our systems are water resistant (even the cellular ones) which means you can actually use the system in the shower. The good news is that if you try a system like the standard Linear PERS which is for use in and around the house, and would like to upgrade to a cellular system that doesn’t require a landline, there are no charges. The NextAlert, which is our cellular 24/7 senior medical alert system is priced at 29.95/month with no long term contracts or equipment fees.
What Does the 24/7 Senior Medical Alert Include?
All of our 24/7 senior medical alert systems include a free lockbox. The lockbox is the box that hangs on a door or a fixed object and holds a key to the house. Individuals using a lockbox don’t have to worry about their door being broken down in the event of an emergency. Without the lockbox, if the door is locked and an emergency occurs, the first responders are required by law to get into the house by any means necessary. Many times this is accomplished by breaking a door or a window, causing structural damage. If the individual has a lockbox with their 24/7 senior medical alert, this can all be prevented. Our operators keep your code on file and notify emergency personnel before they arrive at the scene of the emergency.
Who Provides the Monitoring?
The monitoring of our 24/7 senior medical alert systems are provided by certified EMTs. This means that you are getting specially trained operators based in the United States (accent neutral and easy to understand). Rather than a standard call center, our operators are trained specifically to deal with medical alert emergencies.
