There is a very helpful guidebook now available about home and personal medical alert systems for the elderly. It was proudced by the National Council for Aging Care.We think you will find it interesting and helpful. Find it here:
Since our very first book together in 2002, we've been big advocates to home safety measures for the elderly. We've both written and talked extensively about 'elder proofing' the home of our aging parents in a timely way. It's like having an insurance policy.
One critical component of home safety is having a reliable monitoring system.
We have found a very interesting online site that reviews various products. One of its recent reviews was on home monitoring systems. It looks thorough, reliable, and unbiased. We thought you may find it helpful. It's here: http://www.reviews.com/medical-alert-systems/
