Homeowners of advanced years have amassed the most property in their lifetime, but ironically, that is also the time in their life that they are the least able to protect their property and themselves. This makes them a very easy target for burglars. If you are an elderly person, the golden years of your life should be spent enjoying your family—especially if you have grandchildren—and the fruits of your life-long labors after retirement. You should not have to waste your time worrying about theft or fire emergencies.
Medical situations are also a big concern for elderly homeowners and the people looking after them. An elderly person must be on guard against injury from falling, heart attacks, or strokes, or other age-related medical issues. There is also the risk brought on by a diminished capacity to detect smoke or leaking gas. This is especially a concern for those more independent-minded seniors who do not wish to be looked after and prefer to live by themselves.
An integrated home and medical security and monitoring system becomes a dependable tool in assuring an elderly person’s safety, whether they are living alone or with caretakers. With a push of a button, the appropriate emergency response teams may be alerted, and crisis may be averted or at least controlled.
