Senior Organizations Endorse Medical Alert Devices
December 26, 2019
With surveys showing that 90% of seniors want to “age in place” senior organizations such as regularly highlights technologies that help improve seniors’ quality of life. Several senior advocacy organizations, like the AARP, have issued strong endorsements on the value of home medical alert devices (also known as personal emergency alert devices), noting that these life-saving alert systems help “adults remain independent in their own homes” and reassure adult children about their parents’ safety. Major organizations have studied the growing need and popularity of home medical alert devices.
In 2012, when the Pew Research Center surveyed experts about smart home and tech trends that will affect seniors, Hal Varian, chief economist at Google, predicted that health will be the biggest trend driver.
“In the next decade there will be huge demand for home medical alert systems, and the market will respond to that need.”
Generally speaking, people are living longer and healthier lives. Home medical alerts help them stay active, independent, and confident that they can easily summon help in an emergency. The ease of use and setup are just some of the reasons why medical alert systems are endorsed by organizations such as AARP.
