Boomers and Medical
Boomers and medical alert systems? Shhhh...we don't want to talk about it…those home medical alert systems. We're good. And we have lived some serious living! We've rocked it! Partly because there are so many of us that we’ve accomplished so much. But also, come on now, it's mostly because we are so smart and daring! Right? Of course!
Medical Alert Systems For Boomers
Everyone knows we are the generation of the most births, but one thing we don’t consider very often, is that there are new challenges ahead of us. Some of us are finishing up raising our own kiddos. We are finalizing their college or high school careers. And they will be getting on their way in life. But, we are now simultaneously taking care of those soon to fly the coop, and taking care of the ones who raised us! In addition to the Boomer Generation, we have now also been dubbed “The Sandwiched Generation”. Caring for our kids while caring for their grandparents wasn’t on the radar for most of us, yet, here we are. It's true we are aging better than most previous generations. We are for the most part healthier, happier and financially in better shape. But we seem to also be in denial that here in the next couple of decades we, every one of us, might need a little assistance ourselves. So, maybe it's time we start thinking about how all that technology can be there for us now and down the road? Maybe, since we've always been the generation that thought forward, asked 'what if' and 'why not’, just maybe, THIS time is FOR us.
Anthony Dohrmann; Boomers and medical alert systems
Fellow Baby Boomer Anthony Dohrmann, an avid advocate of “aging in place”, the CEO of Electronic Caregiver is keenly aware of the landscape before every one of us. Whether close up as we love on those elderly in our lives, or in the future as we ourselves move into their places, we need to plan. Recently he summed up his passion about this subject; “Our mission is to preserve the independence and extend the life of the large population of people at risk of incident, incapacitation or death, due to the effects of physical challenges, disabilities, serious illness or aging. We empower seniors and those with serious health concerns with the ability to live at home. We also protect them from the often catastrophic consequences of unattended injuries.” -Anthony Dohrmann, CEO
Electronic Caregiver loves the phrase ‘age in place’ sprinkled with a good solid dose of “independence”. And we also believe it is possible to plan, prepare and ensure that we each can age in place independently for much longer than other generation have, because the technology to enable us to do just that is readily available.
Not the Antiquated Systems-No, Give Us the 'Boomer' Best
The five basics ‘have-to-haves’ that Electronic Caregiver medical alert system was built around are simple, yet significant. The 24/7 EMT's monitoring your account have a college degree and EMT certifications. The 24/7 Emergency wristband is water and ‘accidentally pushed it’ resistant. The 24/7 Medical Concern Button is connected to the leading emergency response company in the country, Rapid Response. http://www.rrms.com/.
No Movement in the Home
The Electronic Caregiver medical alert system has 24/7 inactivity detection providing forward thinking safety. If there is no human movement past it your personal representative will be contacted! We will let you know if your parent hasn't moved today. Currently, the senior who falls and cannot get up or move waits an average of eighteen long, lonely, fear-filled hours before receiving help. Eighteen hours! The Electronic Caregiver inactivity detector is our attempt to drastically reduce that wait time. This can avert potential life altering and/or death inducing complications. In addition to all these other safeguards built into this medical alert system, the Electronic Caregiver offers medical management. Verbal reminders of medical appointments and medication administration times. are daily as scheduled. According to the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, one of the top tips to avoid medical emergencies due to prescription misuse or underuse is 'developing a meds routine.' http://nihseniorhealth.gov/takingmedicines/
Can you remember to take your meds?
Even when one decides to take meds at a meal, a disruption in an eating schedule can cause them to forget. A verbal or automatic reminder to take meds can be a game changer and offers the benefit of consistency. With some medications, this could be vital to the health and safety of the person taking them. Maybe Boomers and medical alert systems are beginning to make more sense?
Because you WANT to know!
Electronic Caregiver offers medical alert systems that use amazing technology to keep us connected to those we need in case that emergency does happen, and when we least expect it. And if you're still pro-active, you may be getting those knees replaced or that hip surgery. Wouldn’t it be comforting to know that if something didn't go right once you got home, you could simply press the button on the wristband and you wouldn’t be alone? You know it would. Boomers and medical alert systems can be a challenge. Boomers expect nothing less in their own medical alert systems or those they purchase for their parents. Because as often as we Boomers challenged what was, hollered about what might be and worked our entire lives to make the future better, we shouldn’t stop now. Even if we don't want to talk about it! Call! NO rip-off here, just good quality protection. It's the real deal!
