If you are a caregiver for someone in your life, you understand that it can be both stressful and exhausting trying to ensure that your loved one is safe. Many caregivers must drive back and forth between homes multiple times each day to ensure that their loved ones are taken care of. A smart caregiver, though, will consider solutions to this problem that don't require so much stress and fatigue.
A wireless call button system will provide a helpful backup solution when you are not able to be right next to your loved one. These systems are designed to give you, the caregiver, the peace of mind you need. A wireless calling system like this has several uses. Many hospitals use them for patients or nurses to notify doctors and administrative personnel of people who are experiencing drastic health declines. They can also be used as part of a home security system, notifying family members if someone is in danger and can also be used by businesses to notify monitoring personnel of any problems. You’ve probably heard or seen commercials for the Life Alert system. This system is one of many like it on the market today.
Call button systems can be useful for any situation. Many systems are marketed directly for use with the elderly, but these systems can be just as useful for children and adults with disabilities or special needs.
If you have a loved one in any of these situations, you should try a call button system. Most of the systems are very easy to use, and thus, they are easy to teach to children, adults with physical or mental disabilities, and older adults.
An important thing to help your loved one understand if you are considering getting them a medical alert system is that these devices increase freedom rather than restricting them. Oftentimes, our loved ones believe that accepting help makes them weak or less able. Older adults are especially prone to this line of reasoning. One study found that among baby boomers, a large percentage believed that their parents would benefit from the use of some kind of medical alert button. Their parents, though, said that they felt that such a system would not improve their quality of life at all.
This line of thinking is common among adults who wish to feel independent. It is the same reason that so many adults avoid entering care facilities. However, call buttons and care facilities both serve a purpose: to help you maintain as much independence as possible while minimizing the hazards associated with old age, disability, and physical impairment.
So how exactly can a call button increase your and your loved one’s independence? Well, there are a couple of important ways that a wireless call button system can accomplish this:
1.As a caregiver, you will be able to feel more at ease when leaving your loved one at home. If your call button incorporates a caregiver paging function, you’ll know exactly when your loved one needs help. This will allow you to sleep more soundly at night.
2.If your loved one is resistant to the idea of hiring a professional in-house or moving into a care facility, a call button allows them to still have access to quick emergency medical care when needed, without the expense and inconvenience of moving. Your loved one can continue their days normally
3.Call buttons are small and convenient to carry, making them inconspicuous. Your loved one does not need to worry about looking different or seeming less capable. As a matter of fact, they should feel more comfortable in the knowledge that they can get help when they need it.
At some point, you may need to consider a home nurse or a care facility, but a wireless call button system can significantly increase the amount of time required before your loved one requires such care.
A call button system (or medical alert system) will incorporate a couple of different components:
Beyond these few basic elements, a wireless call button can be used for just about any kind of system, whether it be medical, emergency response, home security, or in high-stakes police work. All of these situations call for a simple and quick response.
