Spring is the season of rebirth, which tends to motivate us to get up and get going. It’s the time of year where we plant our gardens, color eggs, and reset our clocks. But sometimes it’s not just our clocks that spring forward, sometimes our venerable loved ones spring forward too. What could have been a short skip to the garden, can result in a major trip with serious damage if help doesn’t arrive quickly for an elderly person.
So, start anew with Life Alert Emergency Response. With Life Alert, you can live as freely as baby bunnies bouncing in a meadow because you know that with one touch of a button, emergency help is on the way fast, 24/7, and you don’t even need a phone or rabbit ears. Life Alert’s remarkable 2-way communication unit alerts our emergency dispatch center where our dedicated and extensively trained dispatchers talk to you and send help. Even if you can’t communicate with them, they will still send help.
But Life Alert doesn’t stop there. The industry leader in personal protection offers monitored CO gas and smoke alarms too. With all the spring flowers perfuming the air, grandma might not be able to smell a CO gas leak from the stove. Carbon Monoxide (CO) can build up to dangerous levels in your home when gas stoves, water heaters, furnaces, clothes dryers or fireplaces are not properly vented, operated or maintained. Life Alert’s CO Gas Poisoning and Smoke Detectors are monitored at all times, and sends a signal to our dispatchers in the event that CO gas levels increase to dangerous levels, or if smoke is detected. Life Alert then contacts you and sends help.
Life Alert offers another line of protection with the Direct 911 Cell phone, which is perfectly suited for those active on-the-go seniors. It can be used anywhere and doesn’t need charging. One push of a button connects you to 911 directly so you can get help fast in the event you find yourself unable to stand up after the holiday egg hunt.
With Life Alert, senior citizens can feel like a spring chicken again by living independently.
