The cost of housing lately is going up, and up and up. For adults taking care of an aging parent and dependent children, the financial squeeze can be painful. Many families face the choice between expensive assisted living and the time it takes to care for a loved one at home. Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) help families tackle this issue.
PERS allow senior to reside in the comfort of their own home as long as they’re able. In addition, a medical alert grants peace of mind to their children, due to the easy access to help it provides. They are also a much more affordable option when compared to assisted living facilities. The average cost of assisted living in Canada is as follows:
If you find the above prices out of your reach, then medical alerts may be for you and your family. Monitoring rates are typically around $30 a month. That’s way less than a cellphone plan! However, the cost of a senior being able to stay in their own home as long as it’s medically safe, is priceless. Some think that the senior in their life will be happier in assisted living, where they don’t have to worry about meals or any inconveniences. But imagine how much they will enjoy staying close to their family. Grandparents treasure their grandchildren and watching them grow up. With an Epic Safety medical alert system, grandparents can stay protected and comfortable.
After a fall, users simply press the button on their Medical Alert Pendant. If they are unable because of disorientation or unconsciousness, our fall sensor will detect the fall and call the monitoring station. Speedy responses are key to healthy recovery from a fall. Studies have shown that seniors who use PERS are hospitalized led frequently, and have shorter stays in hospital.
Getting older doesn’t have to be unpleasant. Epic Safety empowers seniors to age with grace and dignity. We want you and your family to save money and enjoy life to the fullest, together.
