According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in three adults aged 65 and older will fall throughout the year. Getting serious about preventing falls and ensuring safety is one of the smartest investments you can make as you or a loved one ages.
Small home improvements around the home can also help prevent falls and improve home safety for the elderly. For seniors who wish to age in place, safety can be improved by making home modifications and investing in assistive technology. Assistive technology can range from in-home home stair lifts to medical alert response systems.
By investing in an assistive device such as a home medical alert system, seniors can remain independent. Home medical alert systems can benefit all seniors of any age! Help can be sent immediately in an emergency situation, all from the simple touch of a button on a wearable device.
