Emergency Medical Alert
Offering a Button May Save a Life
Unfortunately, unforeseeable falls, accidents, mini-strokes and other emergencies are regular occurrences, which can happen without warning, to anyone, and at any time. In particular, the older adult population (65 or older) can be especially vulnerable to accidents and falls.
When struck by such an emergency, reaching a phone to call for help is not always possible. As a result, a fall or accident victim may remain suffering on the floor for hours or even days before being discovered, which greatly increases the risk of causing long-term health problems or even death, G-d forbid.
To help prevent these dreadful outcomes, CMC offers emergency medical alert systems that seniors can wear as a button on a necklace or bracelet. Pressing the button activates an immediate phone connection with an emergency dispatcher, who can send paramedics to the senior immediately. Over the years, the CMC’s emergency alert systems have saved lives on dozens of occasions, and continue to provide scores of seniors and their family members with tremendous peace of mind. Subsidies are available for eligible seniors.
