Due to medical advances and now the baby boomer generation so close to retirement more and more Americans are living longer. According to the Associated Press, the life expectancy in the US has surpassed age 78.
Many of these older Americans wish to keep their independence. But with heart disease on the rise and risks of falling and breaking bones among the elderly it may be hard for someone to leave their loved one alone in their own home. If you are concerned about someone you care about living by them self protect them with a medical alert from Brickhouse.
Here is how it works. If the person wearing the alert falls down the fall detector automatically senses the fall and calls the 24 hour monitoring center. The patient is then connected to a trained emergency response operator who dispatches help right away. This device also has a "no activity alert." If the daily routine is interrupted (for example it is 10 am and your loved one is not out of bed yet) or changes then a trained operator will give that person a call to make sure everything is alright.
Brickhouse Medical Alert also helps protect those with Alzheimer's and the elderly who tend to wander off. The built in Mobile GPS Watch can detect the location of your loved one and operators will dispatch help to get him home safely. They also have a safety zone wander alert. You can set a designated area for your loved one. If he wanders outside the area an operator will dispatch help and you will be notified right away.
The Brickhouse Medical Alert is a high tech device that is certain to keep your loved one safe.
