Medical Alert recommendations.

My mother health condition and age have reached the point where she should have some sort of medical alert system. There are so many medical alert systems out there. Does any one here have any experience with a medical alert system for their aging parents? Any recommendations on a good medical alert system? Thanks.

I'd expect no less than 6 new users to register and offer their take on this before too long.

Re: Medical Alert recommendations.

As an ER doc, I've seen these things save many people. Don't know brands, but for features, get one that detects falls. Most elderly folks that I see in the ER fall because something like a stroke or diabetic emergency caused the fall. In those sorts of situations, the person won't be conscious to press the button. It's a shame how many times I've seen folks found on the floor days later wearing an "alert bracelet" that they couldn't push because of the event that led to the fall being catastrophic.
