Fall Injuries

Falling is the #1 critical injury sustained by older adults living at home alone. Fall injuries and recurring fall accidents are the #1 reason families and their loved ones use a personal medical alarm system or wearable device. The occurrence of falling increases dramatically in regions of the country where outdoor seasonal weather includes a mixture of frozen rain, sleet and snow. As such, seniors residing in wintry states such as New York, Ohio, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Indiana can be more susceptible to fall accidents.

When Family Members Can’t Be There

Falling is the #1 critical injury sustained by older adults living at home alone. Whether it is distance, availability or a busy career or family schedule that separates family members from their loved ones during these life-threatening events, investing in an affordable personal response device provides these families with peace-of-mind knowing there is ‘round-the-clock’ 24/7 emergency alarm protection when they can’t be there.

“I am very uneasy and have had many falls after my surgery. Ordering the First Response system was easy and I even set it up myself. I have had to use my alert button a few times so far. My daughter has even been contacted after I had taken a few falls. My First Response system has worked great each time I’ve needed it!”
