Home Medical Alert Systems Give New Meaning to House Calls

Just when you thought no one made house calls anymore you find that there is a system that, in a way, does just that. At a time when you are unable to get help, your medical alert system will bring help to you. But, how do these systems work and what is the catch?

Is there a catch?

There is no catch. The system itself is provided for you at no cost to you (if you are lucky enough to be reading this post).  When you order your system just mention the coupon code: 8093700.  There is a monthly monitoring fee but no annual contract. You can cancel at any time and for any reason. The system even has a self-diagnostic operation that is performed and a new system will be sent to you overnight (again free of charge) if something goes wrong with your existing unit.

Even the installation is easy enough that you should be able to do it on your own. You simply plug the base unit into the wall and then plug the telephone cord into your wall jack. The next thing you need to do is test the device to ensure it is working properly. You do this by pressing the wireless button and waiting for the care specialist to respond to you and conform that the system is in fact working. Voila!

How does it work?

When an emergency happens (intruder, chest pains, fall, etc.) you need to press the button on your wireless transmitter (the button on your pendant or wrist band). Within two seconds of the button being pressed you will be connected with a live operator who will discuss your situation with you and contact the proper point of contact for whatever will come next.

Your operator will have a list of information that is specific to you and includes contact information for physician, neighbors, friends, family, and hospital of choice if necessary so he or she can quickly get in touch with the people who need to be contacted in the event of an emergency. They have also been trained to immediately contact emergency personnel if they are unable to hear you on the other end of the line.

After the conversation with the care specialist, the proper people, according to your preferences, will be contacted so they can arrive to provide assistance. In an actual emergency, minutes can be critical. With the one button ease of your alarm monitor there are no phone numbers to remember or try to dial, you do not have to worry about making it to the phone, and you do not need to worry if you feel you cannot speak. Help will arrive for you and all you have to do is press one button.

Why should you consider home medical alert systems for you or your loved ones? The simple reason is because those minutes matter so much. Hours matter even more and days can be fatal between the moment of the actual emergency and when help arrives. An alert system will have help on the way in a matter of minutes rather than hours or days and that can mean the difference between full recovery and maintaining an independent lifestyle or needing to be admitted to a nursing home or even death.
