Medical Alert System During Emergency Situations


Love Your Parents . We are so busy growing up,we often forget they are also growing old- Unknown

It is disheartening to know that a loved one, especially your parents came to a point wherein their body can’t bear to walk around anymore. More so, can no longer recognize people around them.

I got call from my sister  two weeks ago, she told me that my father woke up around the middle of the night and went out of the house. Good thing that a kind neighbor alerted them and told that they saw my father walking barefoot along the streets within their area.

They were able to see him and brought him back at the house, when asked why did he went out of the house in  the middle of the night he said “ Somebody’s chasing me, so I ran out” We were all saddened to hear him out telling unusual stories and gestures.

It all dawned on us that he might be experiencing dementia, or worst an Alzheimer’s disease. We are yet to have him checked by a specialist and we all hope for a better outcome.

For now, the best way that we can do is to get Personal alarms for the elderly to monitor him on his daily activity. My mother has to take care of their small business and it is my niece and sister who is left in the house to look after my dad.


We are looking for other means on how we can better take care of him. I think, investing in one of those Medical alert systems like the ones being offered by Lifenet is helpful and beneficial enough to help us in aid in taking care of my father.

The said system comes with a large button that when pressed anytime, will alert LifeNet EMTs that an assistance is needed. The said device can be worn as pendant, bracelet or wristwatch and is waterproof. It is designed for easy function and reliability that one can use for emergency situations.

Helpful system and device like this is a must for our elderly loved ones who needs extra care from us. It is our duty to look after them especially in trying times like when they needed us most.
