Family means everything to us and we would like to thank Bay Alarm Medical for sponsoring this post sharing how we take care of those that matter most to us.
Pete grew up in Lancaster Pennsylvania, for our long time readers you all probably know this, but what we haven’t talked about much is that his whole family followed him out west after he moved to Southern California. It started with him moving to San Diego in 1999, and within a short few year,s both his brothers and his parents moved out here. He considers this one of the biggest accomplishments of his life, talking them all into moving here, but it wasn’t that hard, especially once we had children. Family is so important to all of them that I knew they would all want to be a part of our children’s lives. Now that his brothers all have families of their own, I am even happier that we are all close by so that I can be a part of their children’s lives too!
We see Pete’s parents often, and although they still work and have not slowed down in the least, I do worry about the times we are off traveling and can’t be there for them immediately. No matter how good of shape you are in, as you age, your needs change and you depend more on your family. This is actually a consideration for us when we travel and are considering the time we will be away. We don’t want to be apart from our family for extended amounts of time without being able to stop in and check to make sure everyone is doing well.
When we learned about Bay Alarm Medical, we knew this was the perfect solution for us, and it will be even more important to have as Pete’s parent’s age.
Bay Alarm Medical is America’s #1-Rated Medical Alert Systems. It is very easy to use and set up. You just sign up, they mail you the system, and then you plug it in. It is that simple and it is also this simple to use if you need help.
With just a push of a button, Bay Alarm Medical’s trained 24/7 emergency operators will be there to contact family, friends, neighbors and if necessary, your local 911 emergency services.
We set it up at Pete’s parent’s house in less than 5 minutes. We took the main unit out of the box and plugged it in.
My mother in law loves to wear jewelry and always has a necklace on. She can either wear the around the neck medical alert button as is, and maybe tuck it inside her shirt so her regular necklaces are the only ones visible, or she can slip the alert button onto her necklace that she is already wearing. Either way, she will have it with her at all times when she is home.
The system also comes with a large help button that is meant to provide help when you can’t reach the main unit on the counter. We put this one on a low side table that was reachable from the ground and also on the bottom of the coffee table.
If help outside our family is needed, the system also has a “Vial Of Life” booklet that you can add all of your information for first responders to read. We had it placed next to the device, and then we moved it to the refrigerator because it has magnetic tape on it.
Thankfully, I don’t anticipate them needing to use these buttons, but I can see them wearing the necklace and the bracelet because they are so simple to put on and take off for that extra peace of mind.
Bay Alarm Medical also has a Mobile GPS option that they can use when outside the home if they would like to add on that option too. It is a really nice feeling knowing that no matter where we are in the world, minutes from them or days away, we are helping to make sure they are living a full, carefree life!
