Medical Guardian's Medical Alert Systems
This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Medical Guardian. All opinions are 100% mine.
I have blogged about my grandparents in the past, so you all know their safety is super important to me. In the past two years, my grandparents seem to have been in the hospital more than they have been out. My grandpa's problems have all been "minor"-ish, but when my grandma finally fell and broke her hip, their problems became major. And from that hip breakage, my grandma is now at way higher risk of falling again! Medical Guardian's Medical Alert Systems is a great solutions for grandparents who need some extra care but are too stubborn to move closer to their family members. It leaves them feeling independent while putting us at ease.
Medical Guardian has 12 great tips to prevent falls at home. My grandparents are thankfully doing many of them such as using night-lights, keeping the floor and stairs free of clutter (omg I feel so bad when we go there and litter the floor with all of our stuff!), having railings near all of their stairs and wearing proper shoes. Since my grandma's fall, she only wears proper tennis shoes...no more sandals!
If you have an older family member in your life, please talk to them about this important safety helper. Their lives could be saved with the push of one little button!
