Give a Philips Lifeline Auto Alert this Holiday Season
Each holiday season we find that while the holidays are a festive time of year, it is also a stressful time. Families get together during the holidays and realize that their senior loved ones could use additional support and know they can’t always be there to provide it for them. The Philips Lifeline Medic Alert Service can be a gift of lasting value for caregivers to give to their loved ones who want to continue living independently at home.
Medic Alert Services provide fast access to highly trained, caring response associates at the push of a button, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The Lifeline with AutoAlert option provides an added layer of protection by automatically placing a call for help if a fall is detected and the subscriber can’t push their button because they are disoriented, immobilized or unconscious. A pendant style button that a senior wears provides peace of mind for the senior and their family.
Seniors are living longer and remaining in their own homes; however, falls have become an epidemic problem that jeopardizes seniors’ chances to live independently. Every year in the U.S., one out of three people age 65 and over will fall. This statistic translates to 13.3 million people who will fall in 2010, or one person falling every 2.3 seconds on average.
The Philips Lifeline AutoAlert service gives elders living alone, family members and caregivers’ increased peace of mind not only during the holidays but everyday of the year.
Family Caregivers Network is proud of the services we provide our elders, which helps them continue living in the homes they love. We are especially driven during this holiday season to help more at-risk elders remain independent, so that they can share in the festivities with their family and friends in the homes that they love. Holidays should be a time for celebration, not worry.
S. Leggett and AutoAlert consumer since 2011 states "Living alone is not easy at this stage of life so I was thrilled when my family gave me the service as a gift. I feel more confident now that I have the Family Caregivers Philips Lifeline alert service. It’s always nice to see my family during the holidays, but after they leave, we both know that with Lifeline AutoAlert I will always have access to help if I need it. “
