Reply To: Safety measures for elders who live alone



<p>Hello, I have been struggling with my 88 year old dad who lives across the country – he refuses to leave his home, or to move in with family, or a nursing home.  One solution that I’ve found to be most beneficial is Life Alert – their service is amazing in that all my Dad has to do is press the button for whatever he needs, medical care, the time of day, or even to call family if he doesn’t remember the number and they will reply. It’s a small device that he wears around his neck, its even waterproof so he doesn’t  have to take it off in the shower  – it’s helped him tremendously and I strongly recommend looking into it.</p><p>BTW I don’t work for Life Alert – this is just my sincere opinion.</p><p> </p>
