Life Protect 24/7 provides life monitoring units to seniors. With the push of a button, Life Protect 24/7 units connect to a network of monitoring centers where trained specialists can dispatch any kind of help needed in an emergency.
Life monitoring units are perhaps most used by seniors in the case of a fall or other emergency that keeps them from getting to a phone. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one in every three adults over the age of 65 will fall in any given year. For seniors, falls can be debilitating, and the longer they lie waiting for help, the more severe the possible complications.
Life monitoring units can be worn as a pendant around the neck, or clipped to clothing. When a user pushes the button, the unit calls a monitoring center where operators assess the problem, and send the necessary emergency responders.
Just having the monitoring unit can offer peace of mind to the user and their family. According to AARP, life monitoring units encourage more freedom among seniors. They may move around more because they’re less afraid of the consequences of falling. In turn, their families know their loved ones won’t be stranded in case of emergency.
