What happens during a home safety assessment?
During a home safety assessment, a trained professional will visit the senior's home to identify potential hazards and recommend solutions to improve safety and prevent falls. This might include installing grab bars in the bathroom, removing loose rugs or clutter, and improving lighting.
How often is the medical alert device checked for proper function?
The medical alert device should be checked regularly to ensure it is functioning properly. Many service providers offer regular testing and maintenance to ensure that the device is always in working order.
What happens if a senior needs help but is unable to press the alert button?
Many medical alert systems have automatic fall detection, which can detect falls and automatically alert the service provider. In addition, some systems have voice-activated technology that can be used to call for help without pressing a button.
How can I be sure that the service provider is reliable and trustworthy?
When choosing a Home Safety/Medical Alert service provider, it is important to do your research and choose a reputable company with a track record of providing high-quality services. Look for customer reviews, ask for referrals from friends and family, and make sure the provider is licensed and insured.
