Best Medical Alert Systems You Don't Have to Wear
Dear Savvy Senior,
Are there any monitored medical alert devices that you know of that don't require pushing a wearable help button? My 82-year-old father, who lives alone, has fallen twice during the past year but doesn't like wearing an SOS pendant button.
Yes, there are actually several monitored medical alert systems and other technologies on the market today that have voice-activated capabilities that let seniors call for help using voice commands, without pushing a wearable help button.
