Offering landline and mobile alert solutions for seniors, Life Protect 24/7 helps older adults stay safe while maintaining their independence. Personal alert devices can bring peace of mind to a senior adult’s children, who can feel secure in knowing that their aged parent can receive care in case of a fall.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, falls are very common among older adults, with nearly one in three people over the age of 65 experiencing a fall each year. A fall can cause serious injury, such as head trauma or broken bones. In addition, individuals who become immobilized after a fall can experience other consequences, such as dehydration, hypothermia, or muscle breakdown. Because they know the risks of falling, some seniors choose to limit their activity, which can diminish their sense of well-being and enjoyment of life.

With a medical alert device installed in their home or carried with them, seniors have the added protection of having help readily available if they experience a fall. With the simple push of a button, seniors can connect to trained professionals who can assess the situation and ensure the right family members, friends, or authorities provide the assistance the senior needs.
