Medical Information
Valentines DAy

The last Monday in May is a three day weekend that – unofficially – starts summer.  It is Memorial Day weekend, when the nation remembers the sacrifices our uniformed men and women made for our freedom and Independence.

It’s also a time when families get together to barbeque, picnic, and jump into pools. As you’re grilling you see mom stumble a bit or perhaps dad doesn’t have as good of a balance as he used to.  You want to talk to them about moving into a retirement community but your elderly parents can be as immovable as Stonewall Jackson. 

In order to prevent a world war from breaking out at your party you decide to avoid the topic of them moving into a retirement community.  Besides, you already know they will say, “Hell no, we won’t go,” sounding like some anti-war chant.

But you know that a medical emergency can sneak up on them like Washington crossing the Delaware, and you don’t want them ambushed by a surprise attack such as a fall.

So arm them with Life Alert protection. Life Alert medical alert system has a patented 2-way communication monitor and a lightweight emergency button that can be worn on the wrist or as a pendant. When home emergencies arise, such as medical, falls, fire and even home intrusion, just one press of the emergency button and Life Alert will send in the cavalry.

Moreover, Life Alert’s cutting edge technology makes the emergency button so waterproof that even a Navy Seal would be impressed.

Just as there are branches of the military protecting our great nation, Life Alert offers branches of protection as well, so homes and families can stay safe and independent.  For example, standard fire alarms only make noise to warn of smoke, whereas, Life Alert’s Monitored Fire Protection system not only alerts you upon detecting fire or smoke, it also sends a signal to a team of dispatchers who notify the local authorities. Life Alert’s monitored fire protection system can literally mean the difference between life and death, and this kind of fast response can save the valuables that families have worked hard for.

Here is an actual testimonial from a happy customer:

I am writing to thank you for your help the other day. I had put something on my gas stove, forgot about it, and left my house. My fire alarm went on from the smoke in my kitchen. You called the fire department and they prevented a fire in my house. I was not even home at that time, and you saved my home. Again, thank you very much. 

Life Alert also offers another great way to protect the family with the Monitored CO Gas Protection System. Carbon Monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless, gas that can build up to dangerous levels in homes through hard laboring stoves, water heaters, furnaces, clothes dryers or the fireplace if not property vented, maintained, and operated. Sometimes the elderly either can’t or forget to maintain these things. Life Alert’s CO Gas Protection System is monitored and will not only warn of high levels of the poisonous gas, but will also send help any time of day or night if CO gas is detected.  As seen with this actual lifesaving testimonial:

I recently experienced my alert system going off which was the alarm for gas leak in my fireplace insert, which could silently have killed two of us living in my home. Just one experience like this and the quick response by firemen was worth each and every payment I make. Thank you.
These are just a few of the services Life Alert offers, so if more protection is needed, Life Alert has independent living protection packages for all ages.

So as you pay homage to those fallen, you may also want to remember the venerable ones that are still with you. This Memorial Day, put a flag on a soldier’s headstone and put a Life Alert medical alert on your parents.
