Hugh Hefner Carried The Torch For The Medical Alert Community!
Hefner was an inspiration to many seniors. Not to say that everybody agreed with his lifestyle of excess, but Hugh was carrying the torch for most medical alert carrying seniors who were afraid to even talk about sex. In many parts of the world, including the US, senior sexuality is still a taboo subject and one that is often ridiculed. However, a recent study at the University of Manchester found that adults are having sex well into their 80s and they are happy to talk about it. Apparently, 54% of men and 31% of women over the age of 70 reported being sexually active. They forgot to ask the one important question: How many of those seniors were wearing medical alert devices at the time. I guess they didn’t think it was important – but we do.
The Importance of Senior Medical Alert Systems
Each year, over 1/4 of seniors 65 and older will fall at home. It is frightening to think that if you are alone and unable to move, you may be unable to contact help. Each moment that you spend without help can drastically limit the possibility of recovery. Often, a medical crisis can be time sensitive and access to help can mean the difference between life and death. A medical alert system provides peace of mind to the elderly and their families. Help is only a button away.
