Medical alert help

Postby ljacobs1987 on Fri Sep 09, 2011 6:26 pm

Hi all. I'm new to the forums and I have a serious question. My daughter is moving to OSU from Indianapolis in the middle of September (less than a month). I would be comfortable with this if it weren't for her severe peanut allergy. Of course, she has more than one epi-pen but if something were to happen she would need to go to the emergency room after the shot. I'm looking into those medical alert necklaces and bracelets. I guess they work by calling 911 when you press a button. I saw a type called alert one safety monitors but I need information on cost. I found a little at that website but I really need a review of the bracelets. Thank you so much. This would help me get some sleep at night with her away at school.

I think a medical alert system is perfect for anyone especially if your living alone. I know many people who have a med alert and has said nothing but great things about it. My friends mother said that her med alert has once saved her life! I am actually looking into it now for my mother-in-law because she just recently lost her husband and is now living on her own. Make sure before purchasing a medical alert system that you do your research well and call and ask for a brochure before making your decision. Good Luck!

I am also currently looking for a medical alert for my grandmother who has had a couple of strokes and falls in the last few years so if anyone knows what to look out for or good ones to get i'd be grateful for your opinions.

hi, i would ask your local doctor or chemist for advice in your area. My grandpa had a lot of support in the home from the red cross maybe they could advise or I'd say help the aged would be very used to these products
