Why Family Caregivers to Seniors Need a Medical Alert System

Why Family Caregivers to Seniors Need a Medical Alert System - SafeGuardian Medical Alarms & Help Alert Systems

Are you one of the 53 million?

According to a recent report by PERS Insider, approximately 53 million Americans are providing care to someone they know with functional or other health needs. For lack of a better word, they’re family caregivers. 

And over the last few years, the increasing number of Americans providing care to loved ones has coincided with a dire professional caregiver shortage and huge worker turnover.

So where does that leave those who are most vulnerable and need care? As we mentioned above, this responsibility can often fall on the shoulders of family caregivers, or those who provide free, untrained care to their loved ones while juggling their own life’s responsibilities.

But this arrangement can also lead to burnout among caregivers. So what other options are there?

One tried and tested solution is a medical alert system.

Now more than ever seniors are living longer, healthier, and more independent lives. And while a senior’s caregiver can’t always be there to ensure their health and wellness, a medical alert system from SafeGuardian can.

Here are some of the exclusive advantages of a SafeGuardian medical alert device:

Medical Alert Systems Provide Peace of Mind for Independent Seniors

As we mentioned, caregivers to senior loved ones are often balancing the care of their loved one with their own personal lives. With SafeGuardian’s medical alert systems, they can leave home knowing that the moment anything happens with their loved one, they’ll get a text alert sent directly to their phone. Doesn’t that sound like a better option than getting a call from a doctor hours after an event?

Real-time, on Demand GPS Location for Caregivers

Every SafeGuardian medical alert system comes standard with real-time GPS. In instances when caregivers aren't able to reach their senior loved one in person, GPS can be life saving. Caregivers can request the real-time location of their loved one any time they'd like and as often as they'd like, providing crucial peace of mind.

Wellness Checks from Anywhere

No other medical alert system can offer this unique feature. Did you know that you can also call into your loved one's medical alert device? When life prevents you from seeing them face-to-face, you can still call into your loved one's device and talk to them directly. Are the landlines down? Is power out? Your loved one may not always be within reach of their phone, but they'll always have their medical alert system. And calling in and checking on their safety is a feature you won't find anywhere else.

The Most Advanced Fall Detection 

Even the healthiest of us has had an accidental fall here and there. But for seniors, falls can be deadly. Rest assured, if or when your loved one falls, their SafeGuardian medical alert system will immediately detect the fall and alert you so that you can get help to them quickly.

It’s important for those family caregivers of aging seniors to know that they have options. SafeGuardian medical alert systems provide peace of mind at the press of a button to anyone and from anywhere and anytime.
