Five Reasons Senior Citizens Need Bracelet Alert Systems

by Charlie Kimball · 0 comments

Many seniors never even consider the advantages of a bracelet alert system. Like most do, they figure it’s fine for someone else, someone who needs it, but that someone surely isn’t them. A medical alert system that’s always close at hand isn’t just for the disabled or those who have difficulty getting around. It’s something that any senior citizen can and should use. It can literally save lives.

Living Alone

Many senior citizens live alone.  Accidents and medical problems can escalate quickly, and there’s often nobody within earshot to call medical personnel.  Sometimes, a senior citizen will have added difficulty in getting off of the floor and there’s no phone within easy reach.  A medical alert bracelet puts senior citizens in contact with someone who can help at the touch of a button.

True Independence

Many senior citizens don’t need a caretaker.  Living alone doesn’t mean loneliness, either.  Being retired and living alone offers both the freedom and the time to do whatever you want.  This makes the perfect time to have friends over, garden, catch up on books, or even take up a new language.  A medical alert bracelet system gives you security with independence. It’s unobtrusive and always there when you need it.  You know someone will be there to help you, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

Peace of Mind

A bracelet alert system offers peace of mind, not just for you, but for your family and loved ones. They worry about you when you’re not around, especially if you’re living alone.   Emergencies happen, and it’s not unheard of that someone can wait hours or days for someone to check in.  A medical alert bracelet solves that problem, allowing you to summon help when you need it.

They Speak For You


Sometimes, you’re not able to speak.  Simply by pressing the button of the medical alert bracelet, you get in touch with medical professionals who can help you.  They know what to do and who to send.  Being able to press a button the moment you feel trouble can save your life. There’s no need to find a phone, no need to call an emergency number. Someone will always answer your call and send the help you need.

Everyone Has Unique Needs

When you set up your medical alert system, you provide your medical information to those who can help you.   If you are allergic to certain medications or have special medical needs, the people calling emergency personnel can relay that information to them even if you are not able.  Maybe your special medical needs prevent certain treatment measures.  Wouldn’t you like those who care for you to be ‘in the know’?  It never hurts to have a safety net.
