Caregiving for a family member or friend isn't an easy task these days. Life's fast pace makes it harder to balance everyday commitments to work and family. You want to be there as much as possible, yet studies have shown that hour after hour of continuous caregiving can lead to exhaustion and depression – and actually jeopardizing the security of your loved one.
Today, family members aren't as likely to live nearby each other, so 'sharing the caring' can be more difficult. Plus, the cost of paying someone to watch your elderly parent, senior relative, or other loved one can really add up, even if it's only for a short time. A personal medical alarm system gives family and friends the peace of mind knowing that your aging parent or loved one will receive a quick response in a medical emergency.
