Why Do You Need A RA911?
Most senior alert systems you may encounter are those that are designed to work in a stationary location. The home base unit alarm system usually has a limited wireless range—up to 600 feet—which means the wearer (usually an aging parent) may not stray beyond that range to make sure that their panic button will still work in case an accident occurs. The reality, is that not all seniors are home-bound—many of our elders lead normal active lives in the community despite whatever medical condition they may have. This situation puts the caregiver on the horns of a dilemma: on one hand, you have an aging parent who may be at constant risk of a medical emergency and who still wants to live life as they want it; whereas on the other hand, you want to let your aging parent enjoy their senior years as much as possible.
The cost effective solution, is using a senior alert system with mobile capabilities. This personal alert system is essentially similar to the home-based personal emergency response system that a person wears as a bracelet or a necklace, but this one is not confined to the range of the base unit as it relies on the existing grid of airwave signals that mobile phones use. What this means is that the senior can be allowed to go wherever they please—to church, to the corner grocer, or the park—and you would not have to worry about them.
There are many such emergency senior alert buttons that are out in the market, and not all of them are equipped with the same mobile tracking technology. At its most basic, such “anytime, anywhere” senior alert systems use at least the same capabilities a typical mobile phone has. However, the advantage with the mobile device is that once the senior presses the panic button, the response and monitoring center will be able to track the exact location of the subscriber. This is important especially in cases in which the senior figures in an accident and is unconscious or unable to speak.
The importance of a senior alert with mobile technology is underlined by the fact that most seniors are afflicted with some form of cognitive impairment, such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. While caregivers would love to give their senior loved ones all the leeway they want, they cannot deny the fact that seniors are exposed to very real dangers when they go out alone. Those whose aging parents suffer from dementia are very much aware of such danger. Against such a backdrop, the usefulness of an alert system that allows the wearer to go wherever they want can be fully appreciated.
