Medical alert systems—popularized by the brand Life Alert—give people quick access to help during an emergency. They just push a button and wait mere seconds for someone to come on the line: “Hi, this is Jane with Life Alert. Do you need help?”
These buttons range from basic pendants to sophisticated watches that automatically dial for help in the event of a fall. They can be life-changing devices that restore a person’s confidence and reduce anxiety among their loved ones.
If your loved one shows any of these five signs, it’s time to invest in a medical alert.
