Like most disasters, nobody ever knows when a medical emergency is about to happen. This is why it is always important to have a medical cover that will help make things easier especially financially. It is also one of the reasons why medical alarms make a lot of sense especially for the elderly.

Medical alarm systems are designed to facilitate continuous monitoring especially for the elderly. They can help alert in case of a medical emergency, thus allowing for swift medical aid. Below are examples of medical alarms that may be included in Medicare covers.

When activated, it sends a signal through a cellular network, thus making sure that coverage is widespread. It is also water-resistant and can therefore be used even in the bathroom where most falls are reported.

This system offers a mobile option called GoSafe and a home option. The GoSafe offer mainly targets seniors that are constantly traveling. In case activated, the medical alarm sends a notification to medical personnel to notify them of your location. GoSafe has a one-time equipment cost of $149 and a  $54.95 monthly subscription fee.
