PSI solutions: Keeping elderly family members safe
Did you know that among seniors, falls are the leading cause of injury, trauma and death? In fact, 30 percent of people aged 65 and older are involved in falls every year. Most falls are preventable. To reduce falls in the home, provide elderly family members with a PSI medical alert alarm and follow these tips:
- Encourage older family members to be involved in a regular exercise program.
- Make home a safer place: remove hazards like throw rugs, improve lighting and have guard rails installed.*
- Go through medications with your doctor; sometimes combining certain medications can cause light-headedness or drowsiness, which could lead to a fall.
- Have regular eye exams.
*Note: Pay special attention to bathroom safety. Install grab rails near the toilet and in the shower and place non-slip mats on the bathtub and shower floor.
What if I need help? If you’ve ever had to leave a loved one with a high-risk health condition home alone, you know how stressful and worrisome it can be. Even more notable is the stress a family member with health concerns feels at the thought of being alone. They may be thinking: What if I need help? With our medical alert and 24 hour monitoring solution, you can relax knowing that someone is always there when you need them.
When every minute counts
Are you or a family member prone to stroke or living with another high-risk health concern that should be closely monitored? A simple to use medical alert system could be all that is standing between you and guaranteed help when you need it most.
According to the National Stroke Association if you have had a previous stroke, previous transient ischemic attack or “TIA”, high blood pressure, heart disease, a medical condition like atrial fibrillation or carotid artery disease, you are in a high risk category for stroke.
When someone is having a stroke, every minute counts. Watch for these symptoms:
- Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg – especially on one side of the body.
- Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding.
- Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes.
- Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination.
- Sudden severe headache with no known cause.
