How can a medical alarm help seniors feel safer in recovery?

Alayna Hansen | Healthcare Tips

After a long stay in hospital, seniors can often feel weak, vulnerable and unsteady on their feet. The long recovery period is ahead of them and the ongoing worry of what to do if they have a medical emergency and no one around to call for help.

Carers, family members and friends are not alone in their concern for the seniors in recovery they know – when discharging elderly patients from hospital, arranging a personal alarm after a medical stay should be one of the first priorities when preparing for home recovery.

Taking up a medical alert system after leaving hospital, can help seniors to regain their confidence and independence quickly. And with a fully monitored service such as MePACS, our clients can feel safer and more secure while they focus on getting back on track and recovering well.
