Who Needs an Emergency Alert System?
A common question that often crops up in any discussion of medical alarm systems is, “Are senior citizens the only ones who can use these devices?” Contrary to popular belief, while majority of users tend to be the elderly, medical alarms are used by people of all ages—for various medical reasons.
The elderly or senior citizens
The most common users of a medical alarm system are the elderly or senior citizens. Older people, are almost always prone to figuring in otherwise easy-to-avoid accidents. For example, statistics indicate that seniors are most likely to sustain serious injuries from accidents that occur in the home. There is an alarming trend which involves the elderly dying from a fall or from slipping in the bathroom. Such accidents would have been avoided with proper personal assistance or monitoring. A wearable wireless alarm system, which entails a minimal monthly cost of from $15 to at the most $35, has therefore been an affordable and helpful solution.
Those with long-standing medical conditions such as dementia, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, or cardiovascular illnesses can also benefit from the life-saving services of a medical alert system.
Teenagers can also benefit from an alarm system. With the ease of use, if there is a situation when a teen is need of emergency services, its as simple as pushing the button. Medical alarms are also helpful in teens suffering from memory impairment, amnesia, or injury.
People in special situations
There are also cases in which a medical alarm system is not used for any existing medical condition but is intended to manage or prevent certain acts of violence or emergencies.
Emergency Alert Systems have become almost indispensable for many people afflicted with various medical conditions. Currently, providers or manufacturers of such systems continue to develop new features and capabilities for their alarm systems and to further extend the range of use of such medical alarm.

Seniors may be alone and powerless to call for assistance if needed. They still may believe medical alert is not for them. This is a reoccurring dilemma faced by the siblings and friends of the loved ones. It sometimes takes an accident or fall to make seniors realize the benefits of a medical alert system.

To suggest an elderly person to purchase a medical alert system, try to relay these situations:
Get it now before it’s too late. Sometimes a senior may not recall that they have the panic button on them. But when an emergency happens, it is the only thing they have to remember.
One fall is all it takes. The first fall can be extremely damaging. A broken hip, no help for hours or days, and being unable to request the help you need are all circumstances that can be eliminated with medical alert. If it happens once there is a good chance it may happen again.
Give them time to think about it. Reiterate time and time again how much they need it. Give situation scenarios where the medical alert would be invaluable. The more those ideas are taken in, the greater the importance of an alarm system in their home is a tremendous benefit.
Tell them you want them to get it. Tell them you would rest easier knowing they have a medical alarm at their disposal. Many times seniors do not want to disappoint their family and friends. By using medical alert, it would help you as much as it will help them.
They will call anyone. Rescue Alert of California will notify everyone you will want to respond to your accident. It could be your spouse, doctor, kids or friends. In a situation where the user is not in a medical emergency situation, the emergency call center can easily contact a neighbor or friend for assistance.
