Why Buy a Medical Alert?
Are you worried about the safety of a loved one who’s living alone? Are you afraid that a parent or grandparent has fallen down the stairs and can’t ask for help?
Who can blame you? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) share these startling facts:
- One in four adults age 65 and older will fall this year.
- Among older Americans, falls are the number-one cause of death and injury.
