You Don’t “Have to FALL” … to be “Alarm Appropriate!”

According to the CDC, “Every second of every day in the United States an older adult falls, making falls the number one cause of injuries and deaths from injury among older Americans.” 1

Although this is a grim statistic, you don’t “have to fall” … to be “alarm appropriate!”

  1. Do you live alone?
  2. Are you prone to fall or concerned that you may fall?
  3. Do you want to continue to live independently in your own home?
  4. Would the assurance that you could get help from anywhere in your home (24/7, 365) provide peace of mind to you and your family?
  5. Do you take more than four medications daily?
  6. Have you been diagnosed with Heart Disease, Stroke, Pulmonary Disorders, Cancer, Parkinson’s Disease, Osteoporosis, Diabetes, or Arthritis?
  7. Are you using a cane, walker, or other assistive device, to navigate in your home?
  8. Are you receiving assistance with meal preparation, bathing, dressing, or restroom needs?
  9. Have you been hospitalized or to the emergency room within the past 12 months?

Although this list is brief, it is packed full of potential threats to your well-being. It can be used as a self assessment tool to help you to identify any need that you may have for a medical alarm device. Since each person’s health and situation is different, you should feel free to contact and consult with a trusted healthcare professional on this matter.IMG_0883.JPG
