Fall Alert Your Guide to Medical Alerts

Getting mom acquainted with her fall alert

by admin on September 23, 2011

Sometimes seniors might be a little wary of fall alert devices when they first get them in their home. It takes a little time to warm up to and learn how to use these medical alert systems properly. I cannot stress testing with your mom enough. Not only is this the best way to make sure that the fall alert is working at all times, but it is also a great way to help your family member learn how to use it. Testing shows your mom exactly how medical alert systems work in an emergency. It allows her to be prepared just in case anything happens! So test every couple weeks when you first get the system (mark it on the calendar). Let mom press the button and talk to the operator. Testing is her crash course in medical alert systems after all :)
