Here are some common objections we hear to a medical alert system.
1. “I can’t afford it.”
For a senior on a fixed budget, a $1 a day can make an impact on their finances. For those of us who work and support our elderly family members, a dollar a day really is a bargain. If we can reduce the time a senior is alone and in trouble then a dollar a day is quite a bargain and a worthwhile purchase. For less than a dollar a day, if a senior loved one needed it one time, wouldn't it more than pay for itself?
Our Medical Alert system is actually less than a dollar a day. We have many ways to get your loved one a system for little to no money up front. Just call us and tell us about your situation.
Generally, the faster a fall or stroke victim can get medical help, the faster their recovery time will be. Let's get them taken care of just in case the worst happens.
2. “I’m not ready for one.”
The day you're 'ready' for the system, it's too late. The day you or your loved one is ready for it is the day they've fallen, or had an emergency and can't get help. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that one third of adults who are over the age of 65 fall each year.
A medical alert system is a necessity for seniors living alone who may need help. They may need help for major things such as a fall or stroke. They may need help for the small things as well like a strange noise outside. With our medical alert system, they can summon you or a caregiver with the touch of a button without calling 911.
3. “I have to think about it.”
We want everyone to make decisions they are comfortable with. You'll never get any pressure, tricks or hidden fees from us. However, what's the peace of mind and security worth. What if you really do forget about it and suddenly, they need it? Every day they don't have it is a day they may need it.
