First Alert for Seniors
How does first alert for seniors compare to the care offered by nursing homes? The quality of service offered by nursing homes and assisted living facilities varies greatly, as does the cost. Nationally, the average cost per month is $3,000, a significant cost for seniors and their loved ones.
Besides the heavy financial burden, nursing homes simply do not offer the same independence that a first alert for seniors can. Seniors overwhelmingly report that they wish to remain in their own homes, and those that do stay more active and healthy, often living 5-7 years longer than seniors in nursing homes.
Many nursing homes are equipped with pull cords in the event of emergency, but these are not effective if they are out of reach. First alert for seniors is worn on the body, so it is always within reach.
