There may be nothing more frightening to the adult children of aging parents, than calling Mom or Dad….and having the phone just ring and ring with no answer. Especially if you live a distance from your parents, or work and cannot get to them quickly in an emergency, worrying about what will happen to your elderly parents if they have a medical problem, or accident, can cause you to lose sleep at nights.

Having gone through many worrisome nights with my own parents as they aged, I know what it is like to worry about your parents. With age comes a certain amount of frailty, and accidents can happen all too easily. Add to the mix a number of medical ailments that can cause Mom or Dad to need immediate help…or just issues with things like extreme weather conditions in the summer or winter….and we all know that our parents need a way to contact¬† *someone* in the event of an emergency.

This is precisely why home medical alert systems have been created: to provide help for the elderly when help is needed…and peace of mind for family members who can rest knowing that Mom or Dad can contact them, or even 911, if needed.

There are a number of different systems on the market however, and it can be confusing to know the right one to choose. That is the purpose of this site: to provide you with the information you need to make the right choice in a home medical alert system.

A¬†home medical alert system won’t take your place….but it’s nice to know that it’s there if needed.
