What features should I be looking for when choosing a medical alert system?
Main features that all seniors/clients with dementia should have in their medical alert system include automatic fall detection, a decent battery life, some form of two-way communication with an emergency responder, and GPS tracking.
- Remember: Not all medical alert companies have these features in all of their products/plans. Double-check to make sure they do
Overall, as long as a client with dementia has the four main features above in their medical system package, they should have pretty good all-around protection from medical injury. The plan should also fit a loved one’s budget and lifestyle, and should hopefully make them feel secure and safe, and allow their family members to have peace of mind over the situation.
