Life Alert News: What does falling in love have in common with getting older?

Written by Heidi Nestor, Writer and Editor, Life Alert

There are two things that are inevitable in life; falling in love and falling down.  Although falling in love can be fun, falling down is not and can lead to permanent damage if help doesn’t arrive quickly.

If parents are having too many accidents, such as falls or kitchen fires, and you’re wondering if moving them into a retirement home is the solution, here’s a heart-shaped message for you to consider, falls and fires can still occur, regardless of where your parents live, and even a retirement home can’t guarantee help can be sent fast. That’s where Life Alert comes in!

This July 4th, wear Red, White and Blue - Not Black and Blue.

If the home is where the heart is a retirement home may not be healthy emotionally since in a survey taken by ACNielsen International Research, 87% of Life Alert members said that Life Alert's protection is a main or important factor in their decision to keep living at home rather than going to a retirement institution.  

With the cost of flowers, chocolates, and a nice dinner for two on Valentine’s Day you can get something far more valuable and special by signing up for a Life Alert membership.  Life Alert’s membership is the gift that has a high return rate in savings since it has been shown to delay seniors going into a retirement home for 6 years!

The Life Alert Protection System has a personal emergency response base unit with a waterproof, light-weight button that can be worn on the wrist or as a pendant.  With one touch of the button, Life Alert’s remarkable 2-way communication base unit alerts the emergency center where dedicated and extensively trained dispatchers talk to the person in need and send help faster than Cupid’s arrow hitting its mark.  Even if your loved one can’t communicate with them, emergency help is still on the way. 

Plus, there’s an added bonus, Life Alert protects everyone you love at no extra charge. If someone is in a medical emergency, just press the button and help will be on the way.

If you have elderly loved ones who are prone to falling, have medical problems, or live alone, Life Alert is the perfect way to show how much you care.  A Life Alert membership is a gift that says you love them so much that you want them to be safe and protected always.  No Valentine’s Day jewelry present could be more valuable than the Life Alert pendant your senior wears so that they can continue living in their own home independently and safely while giving you peace of mind.
