Review of Medical Alert Devices


According to the AARP, nearly 90% of seniors want to stay in their own homes as they age. Medical alert devices can help seniors remain independent, but talking to your elderly relative about wearing a medical alert device can be a difficult conversation. To help make it easier, ConsumerAffairs went through thousands of reviews to find helpful stories of children helping their elderly parents overcome a reluctance to wear a medical alert device and created a short video.

Here’s a snapshot of the video:

• Medical alert devices give the elderly and their children peace of mind.

• Elderly parents are more likely to use a medical alert device if their children make all the arrangements.

• Testimonials show that seniors who overcome initial reluctance appreciate the independence having a medical alert device gives them.
